Mechanical Tests

Thermal imaging mechanical testingUnplanned down time for process and machinery is very expensive and may be prevented by implementing a thermal inspection procedure as many of our clients have implemented with our help.

Worn bearings and mis-aligned pulleys can cause unexpected downtime usually at periods when it is least expected and highly unwelcome. We can predictively identify areas of potential problems and literally see it before it becomes a problem! Predictive maintenance demonstrated.

The sample images below indicate some potential failures
