Acoustic Emission Testing

As well as all the other tools available to the condition monitoring engineer; such as Vibration Analysis, Oil Analysis, Thermal Imaging etc. MMS can also provide Acoustic Emission Testing as part of a predictive maintenance program.

As in all machinery failures, when components impact, lubrication fails or friction increases, noise i.e. high frequency acoustics will be emitted. Because of the surrounding high level of noise in industry Acoustic Emission Technology is ideally suited for fault detection.

It has particular benefit when trying to detect faults on very slow speed machinery (0.25 RPM) where vibration signatures may be difficult to measure and thermal imaging is not suitable due to low temperatures.

Acoustic Emission Testing is cheap, easy to use, non intrusive to personnel or production and excellent at plant monitoring of low speed equipment such as:

Rollers
Bearings
Conveyors
Gearbox Outputs

Often used along side vibration analysis, accoustic emmision testing is another simple but effective condition monitoring tool that aids essential predictive maintenance.

Lin retires

Lin Skelton is well known to many of our customers as their first point of contact with MMS. But now, having put off retirement several times, she has finally decided that holidaying is better than working!

In the 12 years she has worked here she has taken on so many roles:- scheduler, training coordinator, order processor, PA, office manager etc. In fact there were very few tasks that Lin didn’t take on and all completed with a smile and her customary professionalism.

We shall miss you Lin but wish you the best for the future.
