Power generation

It is in the best interest of power stations and utility companies to ensure that no interruptions occur, from the energy generation process to distribution. Testo thermal imagers maintain the integrity of electrical and mechanical components as part of this preventive maintenance. Non-destructive thermographic testing can reduce costly system malfunctions or downtimes.

Maintenance of mechanical components


Heat generation in mechanical components in energy-generating plants may indicate an elevated level of stress. This is caused, for example, by friction, faulty alignment, component tolerances or a lack of lubricant. The main advantage of infrared measurement: it is non-contact and can therefore be carried out during operation and from a safe distance.

Maintenance of electrical installations


Testo thermal imagers facilitate evaluation of the heat status of low, medium and high-voltage systems. Thermal images lead to the early detection of defective components or connections, so that the required preventive measures can be introduced in a targeted fashion. This minimises dangerous fire risks and avoids costly production downtimes for energy producers.

Ideal thermal imagers


Not only can you use the high-resolution testo 885 in camcorder format (with rotary handle and foldable and pivotable display) to reliably detect damage to mechanical system components as part of your mechanical maintenance. The patent-pending SiteRecognition technology also provides extremely efficient inspection route management.
