thermal safety testing Bielefeld Sennestadt Office conducted for electrical technology and thermal imaging, automation, wins the State capital Hannover (LHH) as a new customer. “In the competition with different providers, the BL automation received an order: thermal safety testing in 77 day-care centres”. (Day-care centres in the Borough of Hanover) Requirement of the implementation was the preventive fire protection and the identification of possible weaknesses in the electrical systems of day-care centres. Not every anomaly immediately triggers a major fire. But imagine the situation in a kindergarten, in the burning smell is perceived by verschmorende NIPs. “What could then happen in the panic that not even I want me imagine.” Baumer reports concerned. Herbert Baumer, owner of the BL convinced automation, in particular through its skills and its high-quality technical equipment.

For the LA Department of building management, a point was particularly important: the electric thermograph certified according to VdS and Experts, who can perform the tests for VdS2859 and future DIN 54191. In time intensive winter time instructed LHH Herbert Baumer to the thermal safety checks. The appointments were created specifically in the run-up to Christmas (December 2008). In this season the highest current loads are usually due to Weihnachsbaumbeleuchtungen and increased activities in the kitchen. The using of oven when baking Christmas cookies brings the electricity meter on overdrive.”explains Baumer. In the 77 day-care centres the main and sub-divisions, were like distributions for central heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems tested and logged: site visit conducted thermography errors logged tested plants documented individual distributions by means of test plaque marked test report according to VdS 2859 / 2860 creates the preventive, thermal tests were the different day-care centers potentially dangerous, thermal Abnormalities found in the area of terminals and connections.

These have been resolved promptly in close cooperation with the competent maintenance. Our test measurements are a good early warning system for fire protection in public buildings with passenger transport. After completion of the thermal test to know that everything is back in order, doing this work for me so special.”Herbert Baumer pleased. Company profile: BL automation Bielefeld the BL automation is a specialist agency for electrical and thermal imaging. It plans and check electrical systems, machinery and protection facilities. With preventive examinations, for example, by thermography, the BL, automation avoids costly sequence errors, such as equipment and loss of production. The most security risks (87%) result from loose terminals and power overload, the rest of the sources of error are defective components. Customers: municipal facilities, wastewater treatment plant operator, producing companies and private customers. Services: ThermoSave *,. Testing and design of electrical installations including construction management and construction monitoring, network analysis according to EN 50160, BGV A3 and energy consulting. The BL automation cooperates with qualified personnel, Elektromeistern and electrical engineers. Herbert Baumer, holder and planners of electrical engineering, is certified thermograph according to DIN EN 473, expert electrical thermograph after 2859 VdS and DIN 54191 and member of the VATh Federal Association for applied thermography.
