Welcome to STEMC!
Attn Members: A contractor for Southwest TN EMC will be conducting infrared scans on our lines at night over the next 2 weeks.
They will be driving a white SUV with flashing caution light on top and will be using a spotlight.
The company name, Lewis Thermal Imaging, will be on the vehicle doors.
They will be in the following areas: North Haywood County - Tibbs Road & Tipton County - Burnette Lane, Hwy 59 South & Hwy 179.
Why? - In general, the infrared scans are done to identify potential problems on the power system before they fail and cause an outage. Infrared inspections find hot spots caused by defects in connections and components. Infrared thermography is used to find areas of excess heat (caused by increased resistance) so that problems can be corrected before a component fails. Because increased heating is a sign of failure, infrared is the best diagnostic tool available for finding these hot connections in the early stages of degeneration. By utilizing infrared technology, electric utility companies are able to increase reliability, conserve costs, and save money.
