Thermal Imaging Camera
A Thermal Imaging Camera is a device that forms an image using infrared radiation, similar to a common camera that forms an image using visible light. Instead of the 450–750 nano-meter range of the visible light camera, infrared cameras operate in wavelengths as long as 14,000 nm (14 µm). It allows the user to detect areas of leakage, heat up points, exhaust temperature and more. It is one of the most important tools in the hands of a Predictive Maintenance Engineer as it aids in detection of problems before the breakdown of a machine saving cost and time.
An infrared thermometer is a thermometer which infers temperature from a portion of the thermal radiation sometimes called black-body radiation emitted by the object being measured. They are sometimes called laser thermometers if a laser is used to help aim the thermometer, or non-contact thermometers or temperature guns, to describe the device’s ability to measure temperature from a distance. By knowing the amount of infrared energy emitted by the object and its emissivity, the object’s temperature can often be determined. Infrared thermometers are a subset of devices known as “thermal radiation thermometers”. It is helpful in areas where temperature needs to be measured but is inaccessible or any other form temperature measurement might not be able to reach.
Contactless RPM Meter
A contact less RPM as suggested by its name allows the measurement of the revolution per second minute of any rotating object. Our specialized equipment allows us to measure RPM’s as high as 325,000 RPM.
Ultrasonic Flow Meter
An ultrasonic flow meter is a type of flow meter that measures the velocity of a fluid with ultrasound to calculate volume flow. Using ultrasonic transducers, the flow meter can measure the average velocity along the path of an emitted beam of ultrasound, by averaging the difference in measured transit time between the pulses of ultrasound propagating into and against the direction of the flow or by measuring the frequency shift from the Doppler Effect. Ultrasonic flow meters are affected by the acoustic properties of the fluid and can be impacted by temperature, density, viscosity and suspended particulates depending on the exact flow meter. The benefit of using an Ultra Sonic Flow Meter is that it can be clamped onto a pipe without have to disrupt operations and doesn’t hinder fluid flow in anyway.
Ultrasonic Leakage Detection
Ultrasonic gas detectors use acoustic sensors to detect changes in the background noise of its environment. Since most gas leaks occur in the ultrasonic range of 25 kHz to 10 MHz, the sensors are able to easily distinguish these frequencies from background noise which occurs in the audible range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The ultrasonic gas leak detector then produces an alarm when there is an ultrasonic deviation from the normal condition of background noise. Despite the fact that Ultrasonic gas leak detectors don’t measure gas concentration, the device is still able to determine the leak rate of an escaping gas. By measuring its ultrasonic sound level, the detector is able to determine the leak rate, which depends on the gas pressure and size of the leak. The bigger the leak, the larger its ultrasonic sound level will be. They are very useful in detecting small points of leakage that would otherwise be inaudible and would go unnoticed by workers, increasing efficiency and decreasing losses.
An accelerometer is a device that measures proper acceleration. The proper acceleration measured by an accelerometer is not necessarily the coordinate acceleration (rate of change of velocity). Instead, the accelerometer sees the acceleration associated with the phenomenon of weight experienced by any test mass at rest in the frame of reference of the accelerometer device. For example, an accelerometer at rest on the surface of the earth will measure an acceleration g= 9.81 m/s2 straight upwards, due to its weight. It is a very useful tool that is used as a part of predictive maintenance and condition monitoring of rotating machinery and motor vibration to detect problems before breakdown.
% Oxygen Sensor
An oxygen sensor (or lambda sensor) is an electronic device that measures the proportion of oxygen (O2) in the gas or liquid being analyzed. Oxygen sensors are useful in determining the percentage of oxygen being released in exhaust of furnaces, cars and etc. Having knowledge of Oxygen % allows engineers to maximize productivity and optimize fuel consumption that is being used for heating.
The lux (symbol: lx) is the SI unit of luminance, measuring luminous flux per unit area. It can be measured using a Lux Meter. The benefit of knowing luminance is that you can find light levels at specific areas in your industry. Poor lighting or over lighting can reduce worker productivity and work ergonomics.
An energy analyzer is an instrument for measuring various parameters of an electrical power distribution system. Our energy analyzer allows us to monitor energy consumed by specific machines over time and log it. The collected data is used to study and optimize industrial processes.
Clamp Meter AC / DC Ampere / Volt / Ohm Meter
Clamp meters allow engineers to monitor Voltage, current and resistance of electrical systems to be used as needed.
Earth Resistance Meter
Earth resistivity is a measure of how much the soil resists the flow of electricity. It is a critical factor in design of systems that rely on passing current through the Earth’s surface. An understanding of the soil resistivity and how it varies with depth in the soil is necessary to design the grounding system in an electrical substation, or for lightning conductors. It is needed for design of grounding (earthing) electrodes for High-voltage direct current transmission systems. In single wire earth return power transmission systems, the earth itself is used as the path of conduction from the end customers (the power consumers) back to the transmission facility. In general there is some value above which the impedance of the earth connection must not rise, and some maximum step voltage which must not be exceeded to avoid endangering people.
A Programmable Logic Controller, PLC or Programmable Controller is a digital computer used for automation of electromechanical processes. PLCs are used in many industries and machines. Unlike general-purpose computers, the PLC is designed for multiple inputs and output arrangements, extended temperature ranges, immunity to electrical noise, and resistance to vibration and impact. The expertise of engineers allows us to develop program PLC’s for industrial use and process optimization.
As the name implies, temperature controller is an instrument used to control temperature. The temperature controller takes an input from a temperature sensor and has an output that is connected to a control element such as a heater or fan. It allows a person to maintain a certain temperature in the given area.
A capacitance meter is a piece of electronic test equipment used to measure capacitance, mainly of discrete capacitors.
The Inductance meter is a piece of electronic test equipment used to measure inductance of a circuit or a discrete inductor.
Micro Ohm Meter
Like Ohm Meters, micro Ohm meters also measure resistance but of smaller magnitude allowing more accurate values.
Sound Level Meter
A sound level meter or sound meter is an instrument that measures sound pressure level, commonly used in noise pollution studies for the quantification of different kinds of noise, especially for industrial, environmental and aircraft noise. Too much noise in industrial environments decreases worker productivity, it can be monitored and controlled using sound level meters.
An anemometer is a device used for measuring wind speed. Knowing wind speeds can be useful in installation of windmills.
