High-rise Hong Kong needs reliable electrical systems, and routinue inspections are needed to prevent unplanned power failures.

Infrared inspection is one tool for inspecting live electrical circuits to idendify any minor problems, before disaster strikes whilst in service, and should be part of your annual Planned Preventative Maintenance plan.

How does infrared inspection work?

All objects around us have a temperature, in electrical testing, faults (losse connectons, corrosion, etc) have a higher temperature, but temperature is not visible to the naked eye, infrared camera shows us the temperature in an image.

Kelcroft's infrared camera identifies areas where corrosion or loose connections cause additional resistance and therefore localised heating, it's faster and a big improvement over the traditional bolt tightening method.

Kelcroft's infrared imaging is fast, accurate to 0.01 degC, non-destructive test (NDT) method that pin points problems during the inspection.

It's a line of sight test, therefore an obstacles prevent inspection of the busduct route.

Imagine a power cut in the mid of the night, trapping people in lifts, and residents in darkness, call Kelcroft to order a rapid infrared inspection today!
