Machine condition monitoring using oil analysis is widely practiced by virtually every segment of modern industry that maintains large, expensive, oil-lubricated machines. In many cases, especially in smaller plants or enterprises, samples are sent to commercial oil analysis laboratories that can help monitor machinery health.
Machine Condition Monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice for the construction, mining, and agricultural industries. Equipment in these industries are frequently exposed to severe environmental and working conditions. An effective oil analysis program will keep important assets in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled downtime.
Cities and towns are often responsible for maintaining critical assets such as water and wastewater treatment facilities and power generation plants. Oil analysis on this critical equipment as part of a robust maintenance program is a very cost effective way of failure avoidance. Additionally, greater emphasis on environmental conservation and a focus on delivering critical services while operating under reduced budgets leads municipalities to activate these programs. Spectro oil analysis solutions are...
Metals processing industries employ large, critical assets, the reliability of which is absolutely essential to their business model. An undetected failure of a piece of processing equipment such as a rolling mill gearbox, or a 1000 ton extruder press not only involves the cost of equipment repair and line downtime, but the product quality may be severely impacted. Today more than ever, there is also less redundancy. Oil analysis is a critical aspect of a reliability based maintenance program, and for...
Power plants are expected to operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Downtime and equipment derating (when a generator fails to deliver power at its rated capacity) can cost a power plant thousands of dollars per hour. The cost of replacing failed equipment is also extremely high. Vibration analysis by itself is not enough to anticipate catastrophic failures. Oil analysis is often able to detect problems at a much earlier stage than vibration analysis. This is why more and more power plants are bringing oil...
Many large oil companies are Spectro Scientific customers because they employ oil analysis not only to monitor their own equipment in refineries, tankers, and pipelines, but they monitor their own blended lubricant products and also frequently provide oil analysis services to customers who buy their lubricants. Many industrial and transportation companies receive oil analysis services from their lubricant supplier.
Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an essential maintenance practice of military organizations throughout the world. An effective oil analysis program will keep important military assets such as planes, ships, tanks, trucks, and any other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled downtime. Mission readiness of military equipment is paramount, and proper maintenance can also decrease the long-term expense by minimizing replacement...
The business of exploration, transportation and refining of oil and gas involves heavy equipment and transportation at each step - equipment that is costly to maintain and to repair. A proper condition based maintenance program enabled predictive maintenance, saving time, money and preventing costly downtime.
Collect the most accurate short- and long-term water level and water quality data for your project using In-Situ equipment. We design and manufacture every instrument to perform under harsh conditions for years.
Capnography is the monitoring of the concentration or partial pressure of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the respiratory gases. The CO2 concentration during a single breath is measured in a high temporal resolution to monitor the condition of the lungs.
Selection of machine monitoring data loggers for commercial, industrial, utility & construction equipment. Monitor and record runtime/uptime, preventative maintenance, condition, performance, energy, fault isolation, QC, and more.
Evaporative gas cooling and conditioning systems help protect your downstream equipment, enhance air pollution control performance, reduce gas volumes, and increase production capacity. Central to our systems are Turbotak atomizing nozzles, which introduce a controlled amount of finely atomized water into the hot gas stream to reduce and/or maintain gas temperature. The water evaporates, while absorbing heat from the gases, for free-flowing dust, zero liquid discharge, and minimal or no wall buildup.
Thousands of dredges are operated to maintain navigation channels in our rivers, lakes and harbours and to mine sand and gravel for the construction industry. Managing and optimizing production from a dredge requires continuous monitoring of pipeline pressure, vacuum and slurry velocity. The operating conditions are extremely harsh and any sensing components in contact with the abrasive slurry can be damaged. But dredge operators need accurate real-time flow information to properly manage production so equipment...
Three Steps of CEMS:
1st Step: Gas Sampling
2nd Step: Gas conditioning and treatment
3rd Step: Measurement/Calibration
In first step, the function is to get sample gas and forward to 2nd step for treatment. During this step, it cannot block the probes and cannot result condensation of moisture. So a filter online back flushing should be equipped in this part.
The filters to be used: 1, Filter is used to ensure the stability of system and reduce the maintenance
2, Filtration Grade: usually 2 or 3 micron
If you use compressed breathing air it is essential to monitor for contaminants including carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as well as oil mist and water vapour. Some people spot-check their compressed air quarterly using colorimetric tubes, but it is safer to test the air continuously. If you are operating or servicing equipment containing fluorinated greenhouse gas (F gas) in refrigeration, air conditioning and fire protection systems you need to adhere to requireme...
HI-Q considers the responsibility for worker health and safety to be of paramount importance. This is a responsibility that requires good documentation of facts. Many studies are conducted to evaluate workplace health and safety conditions as they relate to workers exposure to radiation, chemicals, and biological hazards during the normal work day. HI-Qs wide line of air sampling equipment, systems and accessories are used in the monitoring then documentation of these workplaces.
