Use non-destructive testing to identify electrical and mechanical risks

A Cost-effective way to Detect risks

infrared thermography & Infrared InspectionInfrared thermography is one of the most effective and cost-efficient non-destructive testing (NDT) programs. Infrared thermography inspection services detect areas of abnormal temperature, diagnose problem areas, and determine severity in electrical systems and mechanical equipment.

Electrical problems that are not identified, managed, and repaired quickly may cause untimely shutdowns, property losses, increased operating costs, and business interruption. Electrical and mechanical infrared thermography inspections are the single most preventative measure a business can implement. In addition, predictive and preventative maintenance programs such as infrared thermography (IR) can deliver savings many times greater than the initial investment.

Clients say that infrared thermography risk engineers TÜV SÜD Global Risk Consultants are incredibly knowledgeable and provide first-rate service. In a recent client survey:

  • 77% of GRC infrared thermography clients described their experience as “better than expected” 
  • 40% said GRC service was “much better than expected.”


Comprehensive Reports
Engineers from TÜV SÜD Global Risk Consultants utilize infrared and airborne ultrasound technology for electrical testing. IR inspections can detect abnormal or unexpected thermal patterns that may cause equipment failure (i.e. “invisible” threats). Our formal comprehensive reports not only locate problems with extreme precision but also recommend cost-effective solutions.

Severity and Impact Ratings
TÜV SÜD Global Risk Consultants provides severity and impact ratings for each finding in an infrared thermography inspection. Our reports include a summary of findings, equipment inventory listing, and business impact analysis. All findings and metrics are made available in our online data management system GRC Connect.

Ultrasonic Testing
Ultrasonic testing is an additional tool enabling us to identify critical loss exposures such as internal and external tracking/arcing problems in high voltage equipment that are not detectable when using infrared imaging.

Thermographic Imaging Analysis
Thermographic imaging analysis is used to diagnose problem areas and determine their impact and severity. It also enables us to pinpoint abnormal temperatures and resolve variances and deficiencies.

Immediate Delivery of Findings
Clients can access comprehensive on-site reports through our online client data management system. These include a quantifiable operational cost-saving action plan as well as severity and impact ratings for each finding.

ACHIEVE COST SAVINGS by Identifying Loss Exposures

A proper infrared thermographic imaging program can deliver savings many times greater than the amount required for development and implementation and can be a critical component of any condition monitoring program. TÜV SÜD Global Risk Consultants (GRC) experts use the latest techniques and infrared and airborne ultrasound technology to provide you with comprehensive reports, severity and impact ratings, ultrasonic testing, arc-flash analysis, thermographic imaging analysis and immediate delivery of findings.
