Maintenane troubleshooting international


MTI has been in business since 1976 specializing in diagnostic and correction of equipment problems. Our consulting division has performed troubleshooting and machinery correction with equipment in all 50 states. From repair of water ring vacuum pumps in Hawaii, to correction of mechanical chain and sprocket problems with the stern drive on Mississippi paddle wheelers, repairing pure nickel pumps in rare earth mines in the mountains of California, rooftop balancing of critical fans for emergency rooms in hospitals, vibration analysis of cooling tower gearboxes in Texas, and critical repair of vertical turbine pumps for water treatment in Vermont—Maintenance Troubleshooting was there. We take pride in our consulting services and our excellent documentation of what the problems were and how they were solved. Normally our consultant works with local in-plant personnel correcting problems using the people who need to know so they can fix things in the future.
