Thermal imaging

Thermal imaging is a valuable tool for checking the condition of an installation without removing power from the system. It is often used as a maintenance tool to detect potential failures early on, with the capability of troubleshooting in seconds. Reducing the likelihood of unplanned downtime.

JD Industrial can provide a full and comprehensive thermal imaging service supported with advice and guidance following the results.

How we work

In short, thermal imaging is a troubleshooting device that helps you to stay ahead of the game and prevent unforeseen issues.

We usually suggest conducting a thermal imaging test on-site either once or twice a year. These visits will provide you with a snap shot of your equipment’s condition, helping you to detect any heat sources that exceed manufacturer guidelines and which could lead to failure.

The results from these image tests may prompt you to service or maintain your equipment sooner than the recommended intervals. This allows you to plan the maintenance without the risk of failure, further damage to the machine and prevents costly repairs.

How and when thermal imaging works best

We recommend using thermal imaging from the outset. This way you’ll have a base line for the equipment and a great gauge for measuring deterioration.

We have an in-house thermal imaging camera, which we use to conduct the test and create coldstore integrity reports. We also work with industry leading specialists to check your control panels and access detailed reports.


Benefits of thermal imaging

When you work with JD Industrial, we always guarantee quality and absolute reliability at highly competitive prices. However, even when using the best equipment, there are sometimes external variables that may lead to failures with your system. Equally, if your system starts to overheat or when your compressor begins to age, thermal imaging can help.

Coldstore facilities that are -18° require good integrity from the thermal insulation. Otherwise leaking or poor performing insulation will increase the cooling demand on the system and in turn, increase the operational cost. However, if you can detect where heat is entering storage facilities, this allows you to take preventative action to lower the running costs. That’s the smart thing about thermal imaging.

Here are some of the key benefits of using thermal imaging.

  • Prevent any failures with your system
  • Allows you to check electrical connection types
  • Find loose electrical connections
  • Detect air leakages
  • Monitor for bearing failures
  • Locate piping insulation degradation
  • Identify hotspots in suspected leak area in coldstore insulation
  • Save energy!
