Mechanical Inspections

Cascade Thermal Imaging also uses thermal imaging to identify defects and/or potential mechanical failures in rotating mechanical equipment.

We have considerable experience in evaluating conditions of motors, gearboxes, bearings, rollers, couplings, conveyors and belts.  Our use of infrared technology offers a unique approach to maintenance inspection services.

Our Technology & Experience Gives You Insight Into Potential Mechanical Failures so You Can Plan For Repairs, Get Parts on Hand & Eliminate Down Time.

  • Commercial & Industrial Equipment – Bearings, Rollers, Couplings, Motors
  • Commercial & Industrial Product Distribution & Conveyor Systems – Rollers, Belts, Motors
  • Insulated Process Equipment – Baghouses, Boilers, Storage Tanks, Combustion Chamber Exhaust Stacks

Our IR Inspections Can Identify Potential Problems in Many Types of Mechanical Equipment

Motors | Gearboxes | Bearings | Couplings | Pumps | Fans | Blowers | Chillers | Conveyors

Our highly skilled and experienced Thermographers use high performance thermal imagers to identify electrical, mechanical and structural failures now, so you don’t experience disruption and/or systems/equipment or structural failures in the future. This predictive maintenance capability translates into enhanced reliability, increased efficiency and significant cost savings for you.

At CTI we are in the business of identifying the unforeseen potential problems that are undetectable by the human eye, thus predicting the future – so you can protect yours!

And we couple our on-site field work with best practice powerful database reporting software delivering our comprehensive, unparalleled IR reports to you within 3 to 5 business days of inspection completion. We also make all IR reports available via secure password protected web server.
