Stay regular with scheduled
condition monitoring health checks
The process of monitoring the parameters of condition in machinery, to identify any indicators of developing or potential failures.

Your power, propuls ion and air systems are central to your operations.
Each piece of equipment is made up of many components, every part will vibrate in different ways, frequencies and amplitudes. When a failure is imminent, generally, the overall amplitude of vibration will increase
Protection systems do not evaluate specific problems – this is why regular review and analysis of the waveform is required. Understanding danger output signals, peak values and their comparison to pre-programmed limits is key to identifying specific problems well in advance of failure.

Reducing your chances of breakdown with early detection.
- Pin pointing ‘hotspots’ where faults are likely to occur, as a result of prolonged heat exposure, giving you time to plan scheduled maintenance ahead of any problems.
- A reliable and non-contact method of scanning surfaces, to visualise temperature distribution across entire surfaces quickly and accurately.
- Helping you save costs through minor corrective works and conducted under normal operating conditions with no stoppages.
