Overhead Cooler Fan Motors

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.

The images of these two motors are taken with the same parameters, scale, and level. They should be operating under the same conditions. The inset motor, however, has the wrong pitch of fan blade, at it is operating at least 10° C hotter. This surface temperature on the motor housing is indirect, and the air flow in the area will reduce the thermal signature to some degree, so this calculated temperature rise is conservative.
