Why Choose Mid-Atlantic Infrared Services, Inc.?


Since 1981, Mid Atlantic Infrared Services has gained a wealth of experience in all aspects of diagnostic testing. This experience is unsurpassed in the industry and is available to you on every project we undertake. Several key features and benefits of our approach to testing are described below.

Our service is comprehensive

In contrast to many testing organizations, we find problem causes. We do not simply point out wet roof insulation, hot spots over a steam line, or hot spots on a disconnect switch. In everycase, our service uses additional procedures to determine why the roof is leaking, whether the hot spot over the steam line is a leak or simply deteriorated insulation or if the hot spot on the switch is the result of a poor connection or poor contact at the switch pivot point. When our testing is completed, you’ll not only know where your problems are, but why they are occuring!

Our unique achievements in providing comprehensive test products is demonstrated in our predictive testing service. In one visit, we undertake complete testing of all electrical and rotating equipment. There is no need to deal with several vendors to accomplish all of your testing needs.

True RMS amperage reading confirms overload identified by infrared test.

We provide unsurpassed diagnostic accuracy

Any type of test instrument can provide ambiguous information. We have developed numerous verification checks to ensure that our diagnoses are always correct. As a result of our unique electrical verification tests, we can identify problem causes rather than merely point out hot spots. Loose connections, fault components, overloads and other problems can produce identical infrared patterns. Our roof tests use infrared, nuclear and capacitance tests, simultaneously. These are backed up with core samples. Our vibration testing is supplemented with spectral ultrasound, current signature analysis and ODS testing. Only with our verification tests can the actual problem cause be identified. We teach verification tests to your personnel so they can check their own repairs of the electrical problems we identify. Our verification tests ensure that repairs are completed properly, the first time.

Our instruments often provide duplicate testing capability. For example, we can use infrared to verify misalignment of coupled or belted machines that were identified by vibration testing. Similarly, we can use ultrasound to verify a bearing fault found by vibration testing.

Our instruments are the best available

We maintain the latest available instrumentation. Our infrared instruments are small and extremely portable, the 256 color images provide unsurpassed image quality, our instruments provide accurate, on-screen temperature measurement of every point in the image. These features ensure the most accurate, efficient and rapid survey procedures.

Our vibration instruments combine fast data acquisition, numerous advanced analytical capabilities and comprehensive, computer based analysis.

Our ultrasonic instruments offer high sensitivity, tunable frequency and quantitative capability. These features permit us to identify a wide variety of problems even under adverse conditions.

Our instruments are complemented by all the accessories required to get the job done. From lenses, to sensors, to metering instruments, we have everything necessary to obtain the best analysis of the available data.

24 hour turn-around of our reports

Our predictive testing and steam trap reports are submitted within 24 hours of test completion. Complex aerial steam system and roof evaluation reports are submitted within 3-5 days.

We assure that decision makers receive critical information fast. Our clear report formats insure that even complex problems will be understood by your maintenance staff.


We are an independent testing organization. We do not sell equipment or repairs. Thus, our only interest is in providing the best possible testing services for our clients.
