Compressor Fuse Disconnect

Infrared Thermography or IR imaging scanning can observe conditions on power systems, refractory insulation problems, determine build up in process vessels, building envelopes, heat loss in homes. IR scanning is great for developing a PMP on boiler systems and other frequent equipment needing observations. Infrared excels to look at in-floor heating prior to concrete coring or cutting. IR also detects for electrical panels and power supply units such as bearings in motors heat signatures We are located in the Edmonton Area and cover all video inspection work in Western Canada, Alberta and the Oil Sands in Fort McMurray.

All three phases of this fuse disconnect had a load of approximately 160A. The center phase had a temperature rise of approximately 75° C. The fuse was replaced and the fuse connections tightened, but this only made the external temperature signature more pronounced. This electrical equipment was connected to a compressor that was critical to the operation of the entire manufacturing line at this strandboard facility
