Why thermography on electrical systems?

Electrical thermal imaging is the most established application for thermography. Electrical thermography is useful as there is no other preventive maintenance technology or technique that can identify defects such as poor connections, over loaded cables and faulty electrical equipment as safely and as quickly, whilst causing no interruption to the normal operation of your business.

Thermographic Survey Approach and Reporting Structure

Our survey approach has been tailored over many years to ensure thermographic inspections are carried out safely and non-intrusively, causing no disruption to business operations whilst providing a full audit trail of the health of the equipment that has been inspected.

Working with insurance companies, safety risk assessors and Engineering Maintenance Managers, our thermographic survey reports have been developed to satisfy strict standards ensuring that expectations from the thermographic inspection and survey report are fully met.

All thermographic Survey reports are reviewed and approved by UKTA Approved Thermographers and are structured as follows:

  1. Introduction/Report Summary – This provides detail on the survey carried out together a top level summary of the overall findings.
  2. Main Body Report Pages – Where faults/anomalies are identified, an individual report page is produced providing a description of the fault, its severity and recommended remedial action.
  3. Appendices – These pages provide a checklist and images of every asset inspected during the survey. This provides an auditable record of what was inspected, together with equipment health at the time of the survey.

Please contact us if you require a sample report.

What our customers say:

Kristian from Red Current provided us with a very helpful and professional service. He arrived on site at the agreed time and carried out the work with speed and efficiency. The results of the survey and accompanying images were returned to us promptly which meant we were able to deliver to our client without any fuss or delay. I would have no hesitation in recommending Red Current to any company requiring a thermal imaging survey.Richard Stephenson, Electrical Supervisor, Lovell
We had the thermographic survey carried out as an insurance recommendation and was really impressed with the service provided which was also cost effective. The survey highlighted some areas that required further attention so a worthwhile exercise which we will be doing annually as part of our preventive maintenance program.Marc Baker, Site Facilities and Premises Manager, AURORA FASHIONS.

Latest Testimonial

Rollalong Ltd required a thermal imaging survey in support of a BREEAM assessment on two newly constructed facilities for the MOD. We instructed Red Current Ltd as they had the required Level 2 Thermography certification and were competitive on price. The survey was carried out within the agreed timescale with the subsequent report clearly presented identifying recommendations for further investigation. We would recommend Red Current Ltd to any other company requiring a thermal imaging survey.
