Paper Abstract

The use of thermography during the last six years has permitted the systematic follow-up of the reduction and control of electrical failures, increasing the operational stability and reliability of equipment and installations. The main factor responsible for the decrease in the failure rate is due to the fact that the maintenance team have been concentrating their efforts only in the critical points, previously detected through thermographic inspections. This paper presents the actual behavior of the failures characteristic curves along the time in all the productive units of Companhia Siderurgica Tubarao - CST.
