ITC IR Mechanical Inspection Training
The Infrared Mechanical Inspection training course is designed for infrared camera users or practicing thermographers wanting focused training on mechanical inspection.
This course discusses typical mechanical problems and their potential impact on the operation of a facility. Learn how to perform infrared mechanical inspections, document IR survey results and prepare reports.
This two-day course focuses on commercial and industrial mechanical systems from valves, heat exchangers, bearings, belt drives, gear boxes, tanks, insulation systems, HVAC, etc. Performing infrared mechanical inspections and preparing reports are discussed in light of infrared camera equipment needed, safety and efficiency.
Course duration: 2 days
