Using Thermography for Predictive Maintenance at a Leading Gas Company in Panipat, Haryana


Elion Technologies and Consulting Pvt. Ltd is proud to showcase its expertise in Thermography through a recent project with a world leader in gases, technologies, and services located in Panipat, Haryana. This case study highlights the effectiveness of thermography in predictive maintenance strategies for industrial facilities.

Project Overview:

Our client operates a large manufacturing facility in Panipat, producing and supplying industrial gases to various sectors. Ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of their equipment is crucial to their production capacity and safety. They engaged Elion Technologies to conduct a comprehensive thermographic survey of their critical equipment as part of their proactive maintenance program.

Thermography Services


Our certified thermographers used advanced thermal imaging cameras to capture temperature variations on the surface of equipment. These cameras detect infrared radiation emitted by objects, allowing us to visualize heat patterns invisible to the naked eye. By analyzing these thermal images, we can identify potential anomalies that indicate internal issues like:

  • Overheating components
  • Friction and wear in bearings and gears
  • Electrical faults and loose connections
  • Blockages and inefficiencies in pipelines and systems

Findings and Recommendations

The thermographic survey revealed several potential issues that could have led to costly breakdowns and safety hazards if left undetected. For example, we identified:

  • A hot spot on a compressor bearing, indicating excessive friction and potential wear.
  • Uneven heat distribution on a furnace, suggesting inefficiencies in the combustion process.
  • Loose electrical connections on a control panel, posing a fire risk.

Based on these findings, we recommended immediate maintenance interventions to rectify the issues and prevent potential failures. We also provided a detailed report with thermal images, temperature data, and recommendations for further monitoring and preventative actions.


By implementing our recommendations, the client was able to:

  • Prevent costly equipment breakdowns and production downtime.
  • Improve the efficiency and lifespan of their equipment.
  • Reduce the risk of safety incidents.
  • Gain valuable insights for optimizing their maintenance programs.


This case study demonstrates the power of thermography as a valuable tool for predictive maintenance in industrial settings. By proactively identifying potential issues before they become critical failures, thermography helps businesses save costs, improve safety, and optimize their operations.
