A data base of 3901 electrical problems discovered in industrial thermographic inspections is analyzed. Covering 165 days of field work, the data provide a basis for determining cost:benefit ratios. Analysis shows that an industrial plant can effect a $41,400/year savings by fully utilizing an inspection and repair procedure costing $2180.
