Breakdown and deterioration of corona on a utility transmission insulator
Corona activity on power cables in an indoor industrial substation – you can see light photons produced by corona on upper right section of cable.
The very first problem Mr Brady fourn prevented one of our largest block plants from shutting down for several days. The amount of dollar saved from this single find has more than paid for his services ever since.
Without question, their knowledge and experience with these Predictive Maintenance tools has saved us many thousands of dollars by avoiding costly and unplanned electrical failures, especially on our high-voltage switchgear.

We carefully vet our subcontractors due to the sensitivity of our work to methods and procedures of evidence collection and our emphasis on the quality and reliability of data to be used to support expert testimony. [...] I highly recommend Brady Infrared.
Apprehensive at first, but a firm believer now in the validity of a corona inspection. Found three polymer suspension insulators that would have resulted in transmission operation failures. Money well spent!!
