Preventing unscheduled downtime and expensive repairs should be the primary goal of every predictive maintenance program. Approximately 80% of electrical failures begin in the motor winding insulation, not the groundwall insulation. Unless a surge test is implemented, this critical winding insulation problem can’t be detected until it reaches the groundwall insulation due to extreme heat advanced by shorted turns: too late! Find out how the surge test works, why megohm or hipot testing will not detect winding insulation problems, and why this fantastic nondestructive test has

In the field of vibration analysis, it is often argued that slow rotating components are the most challenging to monitor. When they are monitored, poor decisions and delayed detection are the result. However, just as with easily detectable high speed component faults, slow rotating components can have equal, if not better, success in early detection and prognosis.

The information in your oil analysis report is dependent on the sample submitted. A typical sample of 60 mL often represents a volume 1000 times or more. This 60 mL sample contains critical information such as oil condition, contaminants, and wear debris. If the sample is missing important data, your analysis may be inaccurate. Join us in discovering the keys to retrieving reliable oil samples. .

We will discuss the building blocks of a good laser system and how you can untangle the gobbledygook of tech specs in order to make the best selection for your applications.Understanding how a laser system works (not just how to operate it), will make you a better aligner. We will explore and break down the most common methodologies.

When Selecting New Generation Sensors, Think About What You Want To Detect and How You Want Data to be Handled
Have you taken a step back and looked at requirements while selecting new sensing technology? Today there are so many sensors with differing technology how do you select what is right for you and do they have all the certification requirements in place for use.

When monitoring the health of a machine, tasked with keeping a process running, it is vitally important to select the most suitable sensors to ensure faults can be detected, diagnosed and even predicted thus avoiding unplanned downtime and loss of revenue. In this webinar we will discuss which predictive maintenance sensors are vital to early detection of faults in a PdM application as well as their strengths and weaknesses.
