Michael Stuart was recently featured on a special thermography web episode on ElectricTV. In the video, Michael displays his expertise and walks us through a few common situations that demonstrate some of the usual electrical and electro-mechanical applications of thermal imaging. From the electrical distribution panel to motors and pumps, Michael shows us where we can detect areas of potential energy waste, spot problems that can reduce equipment life, and often save significant money and frustration. Emergency maintenance can cost up to 10 times the amount of regular preventive maintenance, and part of that preventive maintenance should include thermography. Most importantly, as Michael states, “The worst possible thing that you can have happen in your facility is if someone gets hurt.” Thermography is important from a safety standpoint, as well as an economic and energy efficiency standpoint. This video shows us a few of the important ways that a thermal imager can be used to help you save!
