Lilleker Bros turned 100 this year, and to mark the occasion we are offering our newest electrical engineering service, Thermography.
We have gained an ITC Category 1 Thermographer ISO18436 PCN Certification so we can offer thermal surveys; alongside periodic inspections, for maintenance purposes or call outs. There are many benefits to a thermal survey, the main one being NO DOWN TIME, which is a major benefit for a lot of our clients. The surveys are; fast, non-contact and cost effective as well as being an excellent fire prevention measure. Thermal surveys are used across many applications including; electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, process monitoring, quality control and medicine/veterinary.
What happens during a survey?
Our thermographer will attend site accompanied by an electrician. Using an infrared camera, heat patterns of an object will be detected, compared and captured to be later analysed in a report. Any heat patterns detected will be colour coded in a traffic light system against the severity criteria for the client. This initial report can then be used as a comparison tool during future inspections to identify a break down in the material. If the thermographer finds a critical fault the client will be notified immediately.
