An effective ultrasound program can reduce operating costs and detect a wide range of fault conditions in everything from rotating machinery to valves and steam traps, including vital electrical equipment and compressed air systems. But have you ever wondered how it works and why these assets generate ultrasound? Well, we have developed visually spectacular 3D animations and interactive simulations that we use in our training courses that make these topics easier to understand and fascinating to learn about - even for those who do not collect the data or run the program. So, get your team together and strap yourself in for this presentation from the founder of Mobius Institute and the designer of most of these training aids.

Variable frequency drives (VFDs) have become a preferred method of process control for electric motor driven equipment ranging from vertical water pumps to centrifugal air fans. The following is a basic discussion of risks of using a VFD with direct driven centrifugal fans and methods of mitigating those risks to maintain equipment reliability.

So what does it really mean to increase lubricant cleanliness? We read various articles and textbooks that talk about how increasing the cleanliness of an in-service oil will increase the life of a component and the lubricant, but how do we make that happen...
