IR Inspection of Emergency Equipment

UPS systems, emergency generators and fire pumps are some of the most common defenses for facilities. While most facilities perform IR inspections of their electrical distribution systems at least annually, many fail to inspect or incorrectly inspect their emergency equipment.

During a recent Infrared Electrical System Survey, [Read more…]

Introducing Electric Field Vector Mapping – EFVM®

Jersey Infrared Consultants, pioneers in the Infrared Industry since 1984, are pleased to offer another form of non-destructive testing – ElectricField Vector Mapping, or EFVM®.

EFVM® is a type of non-destructive testing used to locate a breach or void in a waterproofing membrane. During testing, an electrical current at low voltage is used to create an electrical potential between a non-conductive membrane and a grounded conductive deck or substrate.

Level III Infraspection Institute Certified Infrared Thermographers

In professional fields, certification refers to a person’s formal training, education, and skills assessment.  Currently, there are 3 levels of certification for Infraspection Institute certified infrared thermographers:

Level I introduces infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, equipment operation and selection, standards compliance, image analysis, and report generation.

Level II discusses advanced infrared theory, equipment calibration, error sources, advanced equipment operation, assigning temperature limits and repair priorities, and quantitative report generation.

Level III covers advanced topics including latest applications, hardware and software, current industry standards and specifications, OSHA and NFPA safety standards, and thermography as legal documentation. [Read more…]
