Thermal imaging service launched

August 15th, 2014, Published in Articles: Energize, Articles: Vector


Magnet has introduced a thermal imaging service, designed to reduce plant breakdowns, minimise costly repairs, optimise the production process and improve safety in the workplace. Thermal imaging technology has become one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for industrial applications. By detecting irregularities that are usually invisible to the naked eye, thermal imaging allows corrective action to be taken before costly system failures or fires occur.


Magnet’s new thermal imaging service forms part of a condition monitoring programme to determine when and where maintenance is needed in electrical and mechanical installations and components. By using reliable, non invasive thermal imaging instruments, which are able to scan and visualise the temperature distribution of entire surfaces of machinery and electrical equipment quickly and accurately, preventative action is taken in the event of a fault.
