Mechanical Failure Analysis
Machinery is all around us. Our homes and workplaces are built by heavy equipment, we commute to work and school in vehicles, and the food we consume and products we use are nearly all produced through the use of machines.
Given the complexity of most machines, accidents happen on a daily basis, causing destruction of property, injury to or loss of human life, as well as business interruption.
Envista uses a structured, scientific approach in the investigation of mechanical failure to determine: what happened, what caused the failure and what can be done about it. Our forensic engineers also help identify what factors contributed to the failure and who might be responsible.
Envista's experts have experience conducting mechanical failure analysis in many areas, including:
- HVAC / Boilers
