SouthWest Electritech Services (SWES) is Announcing the Launch of Its Newest Service Offering-Electrical/Mechanical Infrared Scanning (IR).

Las Vegas, NV, July 28, 2012 --( SouthWest Electritech Services (SWES) is announcing the launch of its newest service offering-Electrical/Mechanical Infrared scanning (IR). Their team of certified infrared thermographers can now provide infrared surveys of your electrical/mechanical equipment. SWES recently announced the appointment of Steve Jorgenson as their in house certified thermographer Level 2. He has been a practicing infrared thermographer since 2009 and is considered a leading provider of infrared services.

Electrical switchgear infrared surveys should be an integral part of all facility managers' preventive and predictive maintenance (P/PM) programs. Infrared thermography is critical to P/PM inspections as excess resistance on electrical apparatus can indicate faults such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty breakers and/or fuses, damaged switches and a wide range of other abnormal electrical conditions. Electrical components heat up before they burn up; IR thermography can detect this excess heat (resistance) so that problems can be found and corrected before the component fails avoiding damage to the component, averting safety hazards and reducing production downtime.

"The beauty of electric infrared is that the methodologies, the quality control and the reports are all standardized," states Howard Herndon, President of SouthWest Electritech Services. "This means a company has one point of contact, a competitive pricing structure and will receive a high quality survey, equipment inspection and report at any of their facilities sites, anywhere in the Western USA," he concludes.
