Providing Mechanical Infrared Inspections to prevent component failure
Saving you time and money with Mechanical Infrared Surveys.
Excess heat means excess friction. Before a mechanical component fails, it heats up. Infrared thermography (IRt) is used to perform mechanical infrared inspections. Documenting and providing a visual representation of this excess heat so maintenance personnel can plan, schedule and correct the problem before the component fails, eliminating ancillary damage, personnel/safety hazards or production downtime.
Trending electrical motor temperatures during normal operation is the key to this type of service. Once a baseline has been established the interval of inspections can be easily adjusted to suit individual failure modes and actual equipment utilization.

Why use MechaniSCAN™ Mechanical Infrared Testing services?
Our team brings all the components, procedures and experience to make us the state-of-the-IRt™ in the field of mechanical infrared thermography.
MechaniSCAN™ thermographers have performed mechanical infrared surveys on numerous mechanical devices of sizes and shapes. Our collection and analysis techniques have been refined over the past two decades so we don’t over or under-report problems. Our experience adds instant value to your maintenance organization.
We utilize the highest resolution thermal imaging systems available to ensure the analysis of your production equipment is not limited by corporate purchasing limitations on expensive diagnostic tools. There are limitations to the physics of what can be seen but we are NEVER limited by the equipment available for your project.
