Columbus, OH (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
Buckeye Power Sales is thrilled to announce the new addition of a thermal imaging service to its client offerings. If a generator system is having problems, diagnosing the cause can be a time-consuming and expensive endeavor. This new thermal imaging technology gives users the ability to view live heat emitting from equipment, allowing technicians to pinpoint issues quickly and mitigate costly downtime.
Although the ability to perform inspections while the generator is under load is paramount, there are many other advantages to using thermal imaging. Thermal inspections can expedite the process of locating hot spots, determine the gravity of malfunctions and help establish a timeline for equipment repair. The benefits continue after the initial inspection - you can upload saved images to a computer for closer analysis, reporting and future trending.
"Buckeye Power Sales is unique from most other generator service companies because we can perform thermal imaging as part of normal system maintenance," said Tom Bohls, president of Buckeye Power Sales. "This allows us to spot issues like unevenly balanced loads and advise our customer on how to correct these issues."
Thermal imaging works by detecting heat patterns or temperature variations within objects. Buckeye Power Sales’ thermal imagers have the ability to view heat emitting from the equipment in real time. Now, monitoring developing problems for maintenance can be scheduled during planned downtime or when it’s financially viable to do so. Thermal imaging can also be used to check electrical connections within circuit breakers, and transfer switches and switchgear in back-up generator systems for hot spots, all while the generator is still operating.
"Adding thermal imaging to a planned maintenance program for your standby power system decreases the chance of unexpected failure of your system when you need it most, during an outage,” explained Bohls.
This innovative technology promises to help improve the overall operations of Buckeye Power’s Products and maintenance.
