In a world where people will do anything for a buck, we at Capital Infrared pride ourselves on providing a quality service without compromising our values…or yours.
Capital Infrared operates by some of the highest ethical standards in our industry. In fact, we provide each one of our clients with a copy of the application standards, which defines how we operate from the very beginning of our service relationship. From the very start, customers know where we stand and what we believe and can rest assured knowing that we are totally focused on providing our clients with a thorough inspection service.
We adhere to the standards set forth by the Infraspection Institute. Recognizing the need for standardized procedures, the Infraspection Institute began publishing guidelines for thermography in 1993. Since their initial publication, Infraspection Institute guidelines have been adopted by hundreds of companies worldwide and incorporated into documents published by recognized standards organizations such as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). Beginning in 2007, Infraspection Institute guidelines were updated and renamed as standards to reflect their industry-wide acceptance and the best practices they embody. Each Infraspection standard provides simple and straightforward procedures along with the requirements for properly documenting test results. Infraspection application standards provide a blueprint for both specifying and performing infrared inspections.
