After years of providIng Infrared Thermographic (IR) studies at the same locations year after year on corporate based programs, do the clients still consider that "the service is worth it?" The answer depends on how the results are analyzed and communicated to management. The statistics show that the dollar savings continue and are significant year after year. In summary, identifying and reporting one major problem "before failure" could cost justify an entire corporate based program for all facilities! American Risk Management Corp. (ARM) has performed thousands of IR tours at all types of industrial accounts since the mid 1980's. The tours are typically for electrical loss prevention and always study high voltage systems and as much of the low voltage systems as the client authorized. Full documentation of areas studied is provided as a list of objects scanned. The anomalies found that are suspected problems are fully documented and reported. These findings are prioritized as critical, severe, intermediate and minor based on the generally accepted temperature over ambient criteria.
