The infrared inspection is an important form of non-destructive testing that has become an indispensable predictive maintenance tool. Unlike any other inspection company, a Pro-Line infrared electrical predictive maintenance inspection utilizes a load-based temperature standard, based on IEEE/ANSI standards and Ohm’s Law in evaluating component temperatures.
This standard gives the acceptable temperature rise of a component for the specific load it’s carrying. This gives greater accuracy in problem diagnoses than simply looking for hot spots and high temperatures.
“Our company has had no major electrical outages in the eight years that Pro-line Inspections has been doing our switchgear inspection. In addition, we have been able to reduce our annual shutdown time from two weeks to two days.”
– Larry Casebeer – Maintenance Manager, Pilkington Aerospace

The infrared inspection is an important form of non-destructive testing that has become an indispensable predictive maintenance tool, and is performed with a portable infrared imaging system.
This equipment detects infrared energy (heat) emitted from an object and displays it as a dynamic thermal image, producing a variety of colors.
Each color represents a discrete increment of temperature as noted by the temperature scale.
Pro-Line uses a nationally recognized standard in evaluating the severity of component problems found during the inspection.
The IEEE/ANSI Standard aid in the evaluation of component temperatures. It specifies the maximum temperature for all components based on their percent of rated load at the time of the inspections.
