Performing Critical Maintenance Inspections on Transformers

Posted by Debbie Whitehair on 5/3/18 9:48 AM

Preventing Transformer Failures

How critical are transformers in our everyday lives? Transformers are everywhere feeding various voltages into our homes and businesses and most people take them for granted.  When a transformer fails in a commercial or industrial setting, power disruptions will significantly affect many aspects of our everyday life.   Would you be happy if the power goes out during the Stanley Cup Finals or the NBA Playoffs? 

Preventing transformer failures is critical because a failure is costly:  high cost of replacement, long lead times for replacement and high in/our swap costs.  The disruption to operations when a transformer fails could be long and detrimental to clients served and could negatively affect customer satisfaction

Why We Love Evolution (And You Should, Too!)

Posted by Michelle Detweiler on 6/18/17 4:41 AM

Historically, the electrical industry has utilized the Crystal Infrared Viewing Windows.  These are developed with fluoride based infrared lens materials. The challenges with these viewing windows is that the failure rate is high.  Typical failure modes are caused by direct & indirect impact, load applied on lens system, heat damage and hygroscopic failure due to moisture ingress.  For these reasons,IRISS has continually improved and perfected their maintenance inspection systems.

Field of View (FOV) Through an IR Window

Posted by Michelle Detweiler on 2/15/17 4:00 AM



Welcome back!  This is Part 5 of a 10 part series on the "10 Things You Need to Know About Infrared Inspection Windows. Knowing the field of view for an IR window is an essential part of selecting the appropriate size window for your intended inspection point as choosing an oversized window could make the project more costly than is necessary. Martin Robinson, CEO of IRISS explains how to calculate FOV and other important factors in Part 5 of this webinar series.

To review, Part 1 gave you a detailed outline on exactly “What is an Infrared Inspection Window?” and what is the purpose of IR Inspection Windows.  If you missed it, click the picture below to catch up.
