You can inspect motors, shafts, bearings, ovens, boilers, and any moving part. Almost all mechanical failures are a result of friction. Friction is indicates by in increase in temperature that thermal cameras can easily spot far before failure occurs.
Infrared thermography is used to perform P/PM inspections on mechanical equipment because excess heat means excess friction. Before a mechanical component fails, it heats up. Thermography is used to see the excess heat so that maintenance personnel can act to correct the problem before the component fails and causes damage to the component, safety hazards and/or production downtime.
Why use Infrared of Mississippi?
Because we brought together all the components that truly make us the state-of-the-IRt™ in the field of mechanical infrared thermography.
Southwest Infrared Services has performed thermographic surveys on numerous mechanical devices of sizes and shapes. We have refined our techniques so we don't over-report or under-report problems.
We use high-resolution thermal imagers and digital recording equipment so that we are not limited by equipment.
Our deliverable product is the best on the market today. Hard copy and/or digital reports are available.
We will do everything possible to make every survey a success! We will obtain the best imagery possible and produce a professional report in a timely manner.
