Resistograph Wood Inspection – EEC RWI.pdf
Resistograph wood inspections can identify internal defects and damages in both poles and trees in the form of decay and cavities. Utilities receive several benefits from detecting internal defects and damages, including minimizing risk or failure, improve system reliability, improve worker and public safety, and better service life of assets.
Infrared asset inspections can identify issues due to the heat expelled from failing connections and equipment damage. There are several benefits to finding overheating components, including asset failure prevention, reduced employee and public safety risk, and providing a proactive way to repair assets.
Essex Energy offers visual inspections on a wide variety of assets that help ensure that your assets are functioning properly. Visual inspections can identify issues with assets such as rust, vegetation concerns, cracks and other potential hazards.
