Thermography and control of electrical systems

Thermography is a method of measuring surface temperatures with a non-contact measuring instrument that is sensitive to infrared radiation. The thermal imager makes it possible to transform surface temperatures into a visual image, where colors visualize the different temperatures.

Ulvesund Elektro AS uses a thermography cameras to control electrical systems and detect / locate cold and heat sources. Our thermographers are Level 1 certified, and take assignments in Sogn og Fjordane with the main focus on Nordfjord.


This is how we use thermography

We have thermography cameras that can measure from -40 ° C to 500 ° C, with a resolution of 0.08 ° C. With this we can locate areas in your building where there is a potential to increase energy efficiency. Thermography is often used as a preventive measure, where potential deviations are detected and before situations arise that require costly improvements.
We use thermography for:

  • Detection of overheating in electrical facilities such as the intake, main distributions, distributions, electrical equipment, etc.
  • Detection of heating cables and waterborne heat in the floor when drilling in the floor
  • Detection of faulty location in heating cable system
  • Follow-up and control of machines such as motors, pumps, hydraulic systems, etc.
  • Detection of cold bridges, lack of insulation, air leaks and moisture in building structures
  • Level measurement in tanks
  • Detection of hot surfaces in engine rooms etc.
  • Detection of growth / sediment in pipes

If temperature differences are detected, this gives indications that it may be appropriate to take measures. Thermography results can be displayed at the control site and / or reported with a thermography report.

Internal control of electrical systems

Internal control of electrical systems is a field we are investing heavily in. We offer internal control of all electrical systems, for example in private homes, larger buildings, industry, ships and alarm systems. Thermography is a natural part of internal control at such facilities. We can deliver a complete internal control system, with control and correction of deviations.
