HSB's infrared testing helps keep a business running
View our video to learn more about infrared thermography
Although routine inspections and regular maintenance can help prevent equipment failures, they can't identify all the trouble spots. That's why many businesses take advantage of HSB's infrared testing to detect loose electrical connections and other problems.
Heat sensing cameras spot risky conditions
All electrical and mechanical equipment radiates heat. HSB Thermography Services uses infrared video cameras that are sensitive to thermal radiation to measure the differences between surfaces. That allows us to "see" a hot spot or other conditions, such overloaded circuits, damaged insulation, bearing failure, or steam leaks.

View our video to see how it works. Infrared thermography surveys are conducted while a client's equipment is operating and conditions that are identified can be corrected during the next planned shutdown.
It's a smart investment
Thermographic scans are a smart investment. Industry sources show the financial savings they produce can be 20 times as much as the initial cost of the survey. Inspections can help prevent breakdowns and identify conditions that are wasting costly energy.
Helps prevent damage, shutdowns and fires
It's usually inexpensive, for instance, to repair a loose connection easily found with an infrared scan. Undetected, that connection might result in an equipment breakdown or a building fire, which could mean injury, loss of life, or damage that shuts down a business.
These clients took action to avoid a loss
In one case, a loose connection discovered by an HSB thermographer in a surgical center cost $200 to repair, but could have caused potential losses exceeding $500,000. Another HSB infrared inspection helped a farmer pinpoint and remedy the causes of electrical problems that might have resulted in up to $25,000 in damage.
