Reducing Costs with ESA and MCA™ Technology
More than 300 million electric motors are used in infrastructure, large buildings, and industry globally. These motors account for about 2/3rds of the industrial power consumption. Electricity is required in almost all areas of the plant to provide the driving force that either operates the equipment that produces the products or provides the services that the plant’s equipment was built to perform..

Torsional Issues: Stop Guessing and Measure the Problems Directly
Failure mechanisms such as misalignment, balance, or lubrication issues can cause machinery failure. Many of these problems can be identified using standard non-destructive testing (NDT) methods including vibration analysis, infrared thermography, and tribology....

The Critical Angle of Ultrasonic Electrical Inspection of Transmission Line
Electrical ultrasound inspection is one of the most unique applications, as it is not dependent on decibel levels as much as the patterns the anomaly produces. However, limited approach restrictions can make it difficult to get…
