Watch Webinar Recording - Electrical Inspections: Ultrasound as a great addition to Thermal Imaging
Ultrasound instruments are great tools to use in electrical equipment inspections and can be an excellent addition to thermal imaging.
For those interested in knowing more about the role of ultrasound in electrical inspections, UE Systems has made available this comprehensive and free webinar, hosted and presented by Christopher Hallum, regional manager for the UK & Ireland.
The session is freely available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EReL0ehVrY
Chris shares his large experience and knowledge in assisting companies from all sectors inspecting their Electrical assets with ultrasound technology.
The webinar includes the following topics:
- Ultrasound Fundamentals for Electrical Inspections
- What can be detected
- Inspection Methodologies
- Data Collection & Analysis
- Case Studies
Ultrasound inspections of electrical equipment can be performed at all voltage levels (low, medium and high) and is used to detect corona, partial discharge or tracking, arcing and mechanical vibrations (transformers).
The advantages of Ultrasound when it comes to electrical inspections are:
An ultrasonic instrument can be used to scan enclosed electrical gear prior to opening for further inspection.
Due to the characteristics of Ultrasound, it is possible to pinpoint the location of a discharge quickly and easily
Ultrasound spectral analysis software helps identify sound patterns related to electrical emissions.

The largest European maintenance conference will eventually be held in Rotterdam from 17 to 19 April 2023. Covid-19 threw a spanner in the earlier plans, but the Dutch Maintenance Society (NVDO), the European Federation of National Maintenance Societies (EFNMS) and Rotterdam Ahoy will combine forces again. At the same time, Rotterdam Ahoy will be hosting the largest technology and maintenance exhibition in the Benelux from 18 to 20 April 2023: Maintenance NEXT.
UE Systems, the world leader in ultrasonic inspection instruments & solutions for predictive maintenance and reliability, is offering a virtual/online Ultrasound CAT I course.
