One of the most effective measures for preventative maintenance is infrared technology. With it we can determine faults in areas such as:
- Bearings and bearing housings
- Overheating winding
- Hot spots in breakers, contactors, fuses, transformers & more.
- Coreloss testing (as shown below)
After removing winding we noticed coreloss damage
Infrared showed us hot spots which were affecting the integrity of the motor
Core plates are to be removed and fixed then tested again for high quality performance
