Inspection workflow for typical consultant company/Engineer
Pack Equipment up:
Fully charged camera and accessories, tools, notepad and pen(cil)
Travel to site:
Drive many miles through heavy traffic or through heavy numbers of city commuters on public transport.
Arrive at site:
Sign in and begin inspection start capturing images with camera and note down on your notepad item locations, descriptions, ID, temperatures, load ratings and image numbers. Other readings could be taken depending on inspection type. All is recorded onto your pad in scribbled notes or via Bluetooth headset creating a voice note for the image.

Identify – Leakage in pumps, pipes and valves. Insulation breakdown, pipe blockages
This investigation is employing the use of thermographics and infra-red in order to assess the levels of sediment deposits within the process vessels indicated. The object is to provide initial sediment level assessment and to provide baseline thermograms for comparative future inspections so that levels can be monitored and trended accordingly. The baseline thermograms can then be used as a reference point against subsequent images from periodic inspections. This will allow the sediment levels to be monitored along with specific temperature readings of the vessels.

TICOR Reporting Software
What is TICOR?
TICOR™ reporting software is used by predictive maintenance and condition monitoring teams for a variety of industry applications to effectively monitor the health and performance of assets.
The android based software has been designed to create instant onsite reports in less than 20 seconds after completion of inspection.
TICOR includes a variety of thermographic and visual inspection modules to effectively determine problem areas onsite.
The software has been developed with a sequence of mathematical, Thermal indexing and load correction formulas to identify minor, important, serious and critical faults within assets.
A sequence of preformatted knowledge based library’s questions are built into the software to enable quick, easy and reliable reporting.

TICOR refers to the following standards to determine the good or bad condition of an asset when thermography tests are being conducted.
- Our reference temperature of 75C is arrived at by utilizing BS7671 (British Standard for IET Wiring Regulations). Cable temperatures are recommended to sit between 65-85C at full load. We general utilize 75C however we can adjust the reference accordingly.
