    Could you please provide a PowerShell script to loop through multiple servers and get the list of local administrators of all servers?

    invoke-command {net localgroup administrators} -comp <servername>

    The above powershell command lists from one server.

    please provide a script to run on multiple servers.

    If you do a quick search on google, you will find a lot of examples - my first page has over a dozen links with examples:

    You know you can provide a comma separated list to the -computername parameter, right?

    Type the NETBIOS name, IP address, or fully qualified domain name of one or more computers in a comma-separated list. To specify the local computer, type the computer name, localhost, or a dot (.).

    To answer the logically next expected question...


    Of course, I don't have a code example for this because I don't use PowerShell to do such things, especially since the list of my servers is stored in SQL Server to begin with.  Although a lot of people frown on it because of misunderstanding, basic lack of knowledge on the subject, and visceral fear, I use xp_CmdShell for this type of thing.
