Electric motors are a common feature found in commercial and industrial facilities.  Despite the critical role they play in facility operation, motors are often overlooked until they fail.  Infrared thermography may be used to detect a wide variety of defects in motor systems including but not limited to:  defective electrical connections, misalignment, improper lubrication, worn bearings, and improper belt tension.  This course will focus on how thermography may be used to detect incipient failures within electric motors and how it can help  improve reliability and reduce maintenance costs.

This course is a must for anyone responsible for the installation or maintenance of electric motors.

Learning outcomes

This course will enable you to:

  • properly conduct an infrared inspection of electric motors and their control circuits
  • recognize common motor defects detectable with thermal imaging
  • accurately determine operating temperatures for installed motors
  • identify tools and techniques necessary to confirm findings
  • implement an inspection program to increase motor reliability

Intended audience
This material is intended for all thermographers performing infrared inspections of installed electric motors.  Course is designed for in-house and contract thermographers as well as managers of infrared inspection programs.
