Thermal Imaging

Using thermal imaging, our engineers can accurately identify existing faults with an electrical installation, as well as predict potential future issues that could save lives.

By detecting anomalies often invisible to the naked eye, thermography allows corrective action to be taken before costly system failures occur. Thermal Imaging or Thermography is the process of using a special camera designed to look only for heat by way of infra red (IR) energy waves. Potential problems can often be found due to excess heat being released by an electrical system, even those which would normally produce some heat when performing at their optimum level.

If undetected these problems can lead to failure and can result in expensive production loss or downtime and, in the most extreme case, can lead to fire. A regular programme of thermal imaging as part of routine maintenance can highlight potential problems long before any event. As a result any required repairs can be planned for in terms of both time and budget. In short, it is an invaluable resource for predictive maintenance. Thermography has applications in many different areas which are listed below.

Thermography can detect the following in electrical systems:

  • Loose connections
  • Overloads
  • Phase imbalances
  • Corrosion
  • High resistance in fuses and switchgear
  • Thermography can detect the following in mechanical systems:
  • Motor overload
  • Worn Bearings
  • Boiler seal leakage
  • Insulation breakdown
  • Hydraulic, steam and hot water systems
  • Tank levels and insulation
  • Valves
  • Turbines
  • Thermography can detect the following in buildings:
  • Continuity of insulation
  • Flat roof leakage
  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning

What our Customers think of Our Service

After a selection process ETM, have been working with us for over 5 years. Successfully managing our Fixed Wiring and PAT Testing. Commercially competitive for all remedial works and installations.

Ham Baker Adams, Fixed Wiring and Portable Appliance Testing

Over the last few years we have interacted with Electrical Test Midlands for Fixed Wire Testing and Electrical Compliance for many of our schools and our experience of their service has been excellent. Each schools’ requirements can be so different and ETM have accommodated each and every one without hesitation and to the highest standards. I would and do, happily recommend Electrical Test Midlands for their professional service they provide to us and the many schools who come to us for advice.

Mr B. M. - Statutory compliance manager

We have used the Electrical Testing Services of ETM for our whole site at Leicester. Beginning with a sample test in a small area to try them out, it soon became evident that this company were professional and knew what they were doing. I had absolutely no hesitation in awarding them more and more work. Having used many standard electrical testing companies in the past, it’s clear that ETM are a cut above as they work to such high standards. My requirements in needing my reports presenting in an unusual way was easily accommodated by ETM. They were happy to go above and beyond to present my reports in a way that suited me; nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend using ETM to anyone. From my initial communication with them, the personnel in the office, to the site engineers, I can’t recommend them enough.

Next PLC

Our appointment of ETM has helped us successfully install a refurbishment and installation of new electrical cabling throughout the factory and offices, whilst maintaining capacity and productivity. We have no hesitation in recommending their services to any organisation.
