Abstract
The use of infrared thermography equipment at Palisades is developing into a useful tool for our Predictive Maintenance Program. We have selected thermography as the most desirable method to accomplish our goal of predicting equipment condition and reliability. The testing of components without system disruption is one of its largest assets. Presently, we are starting a new program to reduce our Preventive Maintenance (PM) man-hour work load in the Electrical Maintenance area; from an average of approximately 76% to a goal of 50%.
