Lighting Structural Inspection Types to Improve Lighting Assets

As we always say at Exo Inc., entropy is a ruthless enemy. Ultimately, time is going to do more to damage your assets than it will to improve them. That being said, protecting and improving your assets will take concerted effort to accomplish. Passivity is an approach that puts you and your assets at risk.

When it comes to preserving and improving lighting assets, the first step is to make sure that they are regularly and sufficiently inspected to check for any potential hazards to the longevity of your commercial grade lighting. All inspections, however, are not created equally. 

Here is what you need to know about how the different lighting structural inspection types can help improve your lighting assets. 

Visual Inspection

While a visual inspection may sound like a small task, it could be the one thing standing between commercial grade lighting with a long, full lifecycle and lighting assets that die out before their time.

A visual inspection completed by an experienced professional like the technicians at Exo Inc. ensures that visible issues with your lighting assets are mitigated quickly and thoroughly, so your daily operations can continue without a hitch. 

A technician with experience is able to notice even the smallest discrepancies in your lighting assets that you may not notice on your own. This noninvasive inspection is the first step toward targeting trouble areas in your lighting assets and planning the best approach for improvement. 

Corrosion Assessment

On one level, a corrosion assessment does assume that your lighting assets have already been subject to at least some amount of wear and tear. While that may be so, even assets that do not show signs of corrosion should still be subject to corrosion assessments. 

While it may not be obvious to the untrained eye, our field service and repair technicians have the knowledge and experience to locate any possible evidence of corrosion, even on assets that may appear fine. 

Signs of corrosion, however, are not signs that your assets are done-for. Our Ex-Tend lifecycle management program is long-term, data-driven, and comprehensive to ensure that all of your assets are protected and trouble areas are tended to promptly. 

Magnetic Particle Testing

Magnetic particle testing (MT) is a non-destructive testing procedure that, as its name implies, uses magnetization to seek out defaults. The first step of MT is to magnetize the part, either directly or indirectly. 

An NDT technician can then identify a leak by applying ferrous particles to the magnetized part, after which indications are formed and evaluated.

Ultimately, inspections such as these help to determine whether your lighting assets have flaws that may put the life of your assets at risk. Based on that precise knowledge, our technicians can devise the best way to care for your unique needs to ensure the lifecycle of your lighting assets. 

At a company of integrity like Exo Inc., we work to ensure that you are receiving the highest quality services without breaking the bank. Our trusted technicians are happy to help you protect the long-term value of your assets and save you money holistically. 

Regular and thorough inspections are absolutely vital to ensure the safety and health of your commercial grade lighting. Don’t trust just anyone with this lofty task. At Exo Inc., we are unmatched in our thorough and innovative practices ensuring the preservation of assets and return on investments in a wide range of fields.
