Thermographic inspection services

Locate building defects and detect equipment issues early. Cut risk, eliminate loss and keep assets in good condition. 

Our thermographic inspection service is a critical part of the preventive maintenance programs of facility managers, utility companies, manufacturers and various other businesses that rely on electrical equipment and mechanical systems for daily operations. We're proud to assist our clients in maximizing the service life of their assets and maintaining the value of their property.


Unsure of what thermal imaging is?

What is thermal imaging?

Thermal energy is present within all equipment, buildings and systems. When there is a problem with the equipment, thermal imaging can detect abnormal thermal patterns. It involves the use of a thermal camera (a non-contact device) to convert the thermal patterns to visible images for analysis.

Why use thermography?

There's only so much the human eye can see. Routine visual inspections of assets fall short of locating defects in buildings and issues in equipment. Thermal imaging is a far more effective solution for identifying problems in mechanical or electrical equipment. It can be used for both preventive maintenance and quality inspection.

A loose connection detected during a thermographic inspection can be repaired economically. If left undetected, the possibility of an electrical fire increases. In the event of a fire, the loss of life and property can be substantial.

Insulation and HVAC deterioration lead to frozen pipes, which can burst and result in thousands of rands worth of damage.

What all can a thermographic inspection detect?

A thermographic scan can catch a number of issues with buildings and equipment, including overloaded circuits, loose electrical connections, inadequate lubrication, damaged/deteriorated insulation, mechanical stress, system overload and much more. Applications include and are not limited to:

Electrical distribution boards

MCC Panels

Electrical fuses



Overhead power lines

HT & LT Substations

Solar panels

Electrical motors



Bearing assemblies


Steam valves



Thermal imaging allows for accurate analysis in a non-invasive, real-time monitoring solution on any mechanical or electrical equipment as well as effective analysis of heat flow for process monitoring.
