Minneapolis, MN, February 16, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- http://www.IRTest.com – Infrared Consulting Services Inc, a professional infrared electrical, non-destructive inspection and building envelope inspection service, today announced that its Electrical Systems Survey
services have the power to identify electrical problems “hiding” in business facilities.
Infrared Consulting Services Inc. business clients are experiencing significant reductions in unscheduled outages, reduced or eliminated electrical damage to equipment and reduced fire hazards as a direct result of the company’s Electrical Systems Survey capabilities.
“Our claim incidents declined, by nearly eighty percent, with an aggressive infrared and follow-up preventive maintenance program said Larry Bailey, vice president Loss Control & Safety Division, CSP of a national Insurance Services company.
Infrared Consulting Services’ Electrical Systems Surveys lead the industry in the ability to significantly surpass the analysis and reporting capabilities of a typical facility shut down, visual inspection and tightening of all bolted connections.
“Infrared Consulting Systems’ Electrical Systems Survey services can inspect thousands of termination points in a single day,” said Chuck Martin, Infrared Consulting Services, president. “Our Electrical Systems Surveys are performed under normal operating load, during normal working hours and do not require a facility shut down.”
Electrical Systems Survey services, performed by Infrared Consulting Services Inc., are conducted with Infrared Survey Thermography tools that output much of the detailed data required and recommended by many of today’s insurance organizations such as Factory Mutual.
Infrared Survey equipment used by Infrared Consulting Inc., includes state of the art Microbolometer Scanners. These scanners feature some of the highest available spatial resolution. They are capable of detecting extremely subtle abnormal object temperatures from a sensitivity range of 0.06 degrees C@30 degrees C object temperature.
The images shown were taken by Infrared Consulting Services Inc., field personnel. The photo on the left shows a typical fused disconnect, which would appear to be operating properly in a typical visual facility inspection.
The image on the right finds the hidden electrical hazard lurking inside the fused disconnect. Temperatures are peaking at a dangerous high of 53.7 degrees C which indicate electrical damage that could lead to, at minimum, a facility outage and, at maximum, a spontaneous ignition and fire.
This following organizations reference and recommend standards associated with Electrical Systems Surveys: National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM) and the International Electrical Testing Association (NETA).
