Onsite Inspections

Whether for purposes of compliance with annual safety code requirements or to gauge the general condition and performance of a system, PolSys Services provides thorough, on-site, annual inspections of all types of air pollution control equipment.


An air pollution system inspection can be extremely beneficial and act as a preventative measure against unforeseen equipment malfunctions. During an industrial oxidizer, burner or scrubber inspection, our field technicians and engineers identify any potential or existing problems, paying special attention to any specific concerns that have been expressed by the operator. Our comprehensive oxidizer, burner and scrubber inspections include the exhaustive evaluation of:

    • System components

    • System controls

    • System temperatures

    • Control Panel

    • Existing deficiencies

    • Key parts and instruments


Thermal Imaging Evaluations
Our thermal imaging cameras translate thermal energy (heat) into visible light in order to analyze air pollution control equipment. These cameras help determine the condition of key components like insulation or refractory in an oxidizer, or the machine health of fans, pumps, and motors. Hot spots show areas of weakness or damage so these issues can be addressed, reducing auxiliary fuel costs, avoiding more costly repairs in the future, and preventing downtime. Learn how an RTO works.


Safety & NFPA Compliance Inspections
NFPA standards can change periodically, so we are frequently asked to perform NFPA upgrades in order to ensure a burner meets current standards. If you’re concerned about NFPA compliance, call us for a burner safety check, full burner system analysis, and/or upgrade. 


Oxidizer, Burner & Scrubber Inspection Reports

At PolSys, we take system inspections much further because we know that regular, detailed inspections are vital to better decision-making, which leads to improved reliability, safe operation, and continued compliance.  At the heart of every PolSys inspection is our industry-leading R.I.S.C.TM System, a proprietary, robust, comprehensive software platform that provides many important features and benefits not available anywhere else. A detailed report that includes all findings and recommendations, as well as photographic documentation, is included with each inspection. This report summarizes the conclusion of the air pollution system inspection so that operators have a clear indication of the status of their system, as well as the recommended measures to improve it.


Post-inspection, we work with you to resolve any issues that have been uncovered during the evaluation and can repair or perform maintenance on the air pollution control equipment, if you so prefer. For customer convenience, we schedule the inspections and maintenance to fit your calendar and coincide with planned shut-downs (including weekends and holidays), so your downtime is nonexistent.
