Infrared thermography is one of the technologies offered by Reliability Testing Services, Inc. Thermography provides a visual picture of temperatures over an area and is useful in locating deteriorating components prior to their entering a failure mode. Thermography offers an immediate payback in the area of machine reliability, as well as access to real time temperature data for most process applications.
State-of-the art equipment coupled with experienced, certified technicians and accurate, timely reporting will provide superior results in any application. We offer a variety of reporting options, or we will build a reporting format to suit your specific application. Contact us to discuss your specific needs or applications.
Skin surveys are extremely useful in exposing areas of damaged or missing insulation and refractory. Hot exhaust gas leaks are also evident. This type of information is essential in making informed, data driven decisions!
Hot areas noted on the side of the transition portion of a combustion turbine heat recovery steam generator (HRSG).
The illustration shows a problematic contact on a 345 kV air switch. Electrical Surveys should be an integral part of any equipment reliability program. Surveys should include both high and low voltage equipment.
