Infrared Technology Services specializes in infrared testing services for industrial, commercial, and electric utility companies. We have been providing predictive maintenance testing since 1989 for customers throughout Texas and much of the United States. Inspections are performed by certified infrared thermographers using state-of-the-art thermal imaging equipment.
There are many uses for infrared technology, and possibly many that have yet to be discovered. Infrared thermography is used for predictive maintenance, roof moisture surveys, surveillance, energy audits, product testing and promotion, pollution monitoring, as well as many other applications. Any process where temperature differences are associated with an unknown variable is a candidate for infrared thermography monitoring.
Some of the the applications are unique, and can provide creative solutions to unusual problems. If you have a situation in which you think infrared testing could be beneficial, please contact us or check out our brochure.
We perform predictive/preventative maintenance on electrical and mechanical equipment to locate 'hot spots' before they cause outages. Infrared thermography is the ideal predictive maintenance technique for scanning electrical systems for defective components. It is also an excellent tool for locating overheated parts in rotating mechanical equipment. Wherever temperature variances are associated with potential problems, we can alert you.
Advantages of Infrared
Some of the advantages gained through the use of infrared inspections:
Minimizes production loss due to unplanned downtime.
Reduces the costs of emergency repairs, in terms of overtime labor, higher priced replacement parts and emergency parts shipping.
Potential to lower insurance premiums due to lower risk of: fire, injuries from faulty electrical equipment, major production delays and property damage.
Helps locate potential problems and 'shake down' electrical systems prior to a new plant/system start-up.
May extend equipment life, delaying capitol expenditures for equipment replacement.
Maintenance management know what problems exist and are able to schedule repairs at the most convenient time.
May increase maintenance manpower utilization by correcting known problems rather than checking equipment in satisfactory condition.
