Stockton Infrared Thermographic Services, Inc™. has been a leading provider of Infrared Thermographic Services as a means of predictive/preventive (P/PM) management for our customers since 1989. Our company founder, Greg Stockton is widely considered one of the best thermographers in the country in addition to being a renowned innovator of infrared applications.
Our service expertise includes helping customers locate potential maintenance problems such as finding steam leaks, locating roof moisture, finding missing insulation, performing animal counts, detecting pollution in creeks and streams. In addition, we provide a line of specialized services for specific facility types such as prisons, universities, school systems, and data centers.
AITscan™ is the industry leader in aerial infrared applications. AITscan™ thermographers accomplish high-resolution, surgical aerial IR missions such as flying over flat and low-sloped building to find subsurface roof moisture, discovering pollution sources in creeks, rivers, lakes and streams, finding steam leaks and water leaks in district heating and cooling systems, counting animals like deer for municipalities, flying high voltage transmission lines for power companies, defining the extent of landfill fires and performing many other specialized aerial IR services. AITscan™ has eleven pilots, nine fixed-wing aircraft and one rotor-wing aircraft. The assets are strategically located throughout North America enabling us to provide services to clients anywhere.
Our BuildScanIR™ Division has two components:
Our BuildScanIR™ Network is a resource for building owners, building inspectors, home inspectors and building infrared thermographers interested in learning about infrared thermography of buildings.
Our BuildScanIR™ Services consists of four types of infrared services for buildings:
Our GroutFindIR™ service locates structural components in masonry buildings.
Our MoistureFindIR™ service finds moisture in buildings.
Our InsulationFindIR™ service finds missing or misplaced insulation.
Our HeatLossFindIR™ finds thermal envelope problems.
ElectriSCAN™ is the former service division web site. Since the launch of ConnectIR.com™, the site now offers information and marketing resources for electrical infrared clients and electrical infrared contractors. Resources include access to sample imagery, report examples, articles and white papers.
ConnectIR.com™ is the infrared industry’s first bidding website. It is designed for electrical infrared services, but will soon include other modalities such as vibration, ultrasound, eddy current, oil ferrography, etc. ConnectIR™ “connects” companies who need electrical infrared surveys with qualified electrical infrared contractors. When an electrical infrared customer enters ConnectIR™, a free service for clients, they create an account and a unique job specification. Based upon that specification, ConnectIR™ searches the continental database of registered infrared thermographic service providers and provides the customer with a list of qualified service providers whose profiles match the customer’s needs. The electrical infrared customer then sorts the list of service providers based upon their selected criteria and selects a contractor to perform the survey.
CompuScanIR™ is the service line of our ElectriScan™ Division which provides infrared surveys of data centers. CompuSCANIR™ thermographers specialize in the infrared inspection of the electrical and mechanical systems that support the continuous operation of data centers. If you manage or operate a data center, CompuSCANIR™ has the solutions that you need to prevent downtime and therefore save your facility time and money in predictive/preventive maintenance cost.
CompuScanIR™ specializes in two areas of service:
Specialized infrared P/PM inspections on the electrical and mechanical systems that support the uninterrupted operation of computer centers. Infrared thermography is used to perform P/PM inspections on electrical and mechanical systems equipment because excess heat electrical apparatus faults such as loose connections, damaged bearings, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty fuses and the like. Computer centers are often checked during “maintenance windows” or times designated by management when test are to be performed and maintenance activities can be safely carried out. Therefore, around the clock availability is an important component of Stockton’s success.
Data Center ThemalMap™
Our Data Center ThemalMap™ provides a heat view look at the overall thermal performance of your facility. Thermal mapping can be used for commissioning new facilities, validating CFD modeling, troubleshooting a cooling problem and progressive monitoring in existing facilities. The large scale panoramas and mosaics provide a new context that traditional individual IR images cannot provide. By viewing the servers, floor, walls and ceilings in a data center from any angle, problems can be found and documented.
The IRresearcher™ division performs applications-specific infrared research such as carbon fiber composite infrared inspections, automotive and aircraft welding inspections, micro-circuitry inspections and sports medicine applications. IRresearcher™ is directed by Ron Predmesky, an infrared research engineer who utilizes 32 years experience with Ford Motor Company. During his tenure with Ford, he worked on many different R&D applications for infrared thermography, served as chairman of Ford’s Infrared User’s Group and was an instructor of Level I and Level II infrared certification classes.
