Industrial Process Equipment
Industrial incidents can involve machinery, processes or people — or, in some cases, all three. In addition to understanding the cause or causes of an incident, plant personnel often seek guidance in employee conduct, process modifications and methods to prevent a repeat occurrence.
Our engineers are diligent mechanical investigators and licensed professional engineers. We inspect and test industrial machinery and mechanical systems through prompt on-site inspection, extensive analysis, and laboratory testing. We often document the cause of the incident, assess the scope of damage, provide appraisals, and determine if equipment design, installation or maintenance played a role in the incident.
In addition to preparing cost-to-repair or -replace estimates for machinery and equipment, we can establish and administer repair or replacement schedules. Our engineers — frequently called as expert witnesses — are known for explaining the unique factors of an incident to an insurance adjuster, attorney, or jury in an easy-to-understand manner.
