Equipment List

This is the list of equipment  examined during the survey.  It documents what was inspected and functions as a checklist for future surveys.  IRIS Associates tracks the equipment and provides an organized list.

The Equipment List is considered a living document. When upgrades take place between surveys, old equipment is removed and new equipment is installed.  At the time of the next survey, IRIS Associates updates  the Equipment List to reflect the changes.

Anomaly Report Page 1

Each anomaly found during the survey is documented on a page of its own with a thermograph, a photograph, descriptions, and temperature information.  More information is available on “About the Report”.  For more information on how an infrared image is analyzed, click How Does It Work?

This is a manual disconnect switch.  The hinge on the center phase was so hot that it literally burnt much of the insulation. This hot connection could have caused a serious fire.  An earlier inspection would have prevented this close call.

Each anomaly found during the survey is documented on a page of its own with a thermograph, a photograph, descriptions, and temperature information.  

Here we have a 25 kV disconnect switch with a high resistance where the blade engages the jaw on the bottom phase.  A failure in service would take out the whole substation and shut down the entire plant.

Anomaly Report Page 3

Each anomaly found during the survey is documented on a page of its own with a thermograph, a photograph, descriptions, and temperature information.  

This is a boiler which provides high pressure steam to a petroleum refining process.  Notice the high temperature due to an apparent breakdown of insulation.
