Ultrasonics

In noisy industrial surroundings the human ear struggles to hear most things, let alone bearing defects, leakages and electrical arcing! Of course this is not just because of the general high noise level, but because these faults occur well above the 20,000 hertz range of the human ear.

Sounds above 20,000 Hz are refered to as ultrasonic and MMS can provide equipment and engineers to detect these sounds and diagnose faults such as:

  • Leaking valves
  • Steam traps
  • Compressed air systems
  • Low speed bearing faults
  • Lubrication loss in bearings
  • Electrical arcing
  • Electrical insulation breakdown

Another valuable condition monitoring technique that will produce effective predictive maintenance solutions.

Safe and non-intrusive MMS Ultrasonic technology is an easy and effective tool to identify many easily rectified faults which would normally go un-noticed till failure. Early detection using ultrasound will:

  • Improve energy efficiency
  • Reduce major failure
  • Improve safety of high pressure systems
  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Reduce un-scheduled stoppages
  • Help plan shut down work
