Thermographic & Vibration Analysis

Vibration Analysis

It is natural for machines to vibrate. Each machine has a level of vibration that is generated as normal or inherent. However, when machine vibration increases or becomes excessive, a mechanical problem is usually the cause.

Modern instrumentation for measuring vibration on rotating and reciprocating machinery makes it possible to detect developing problems, including whether the possible prime cause is electrical or mechanical.

As well as identifying actual or potential problems we provide solutions including machine/coupling laser alignment, and planned maintenance programmes.

Thermal Imaging

Thermographic Analysis

Infrared Thermography can be defined as seeing heat. It works on the principal that everything above Absolute Zero has energy which is invisible to the naked eye.

By using high performance instruments we see and measure this energy and take a picture of it.

Thermal imaging has evolved into one of the most valuable diagnostic tools used for preventive maintenance. Portable infrared imaging systems scan equipment and structures, then instantly convert the thermal images to visible pictures for quantitative temperature analysis.

By detecting anomalies often invisible to the naked eye, thermography allows corrective action before costly system failures occur.

Thermographic surveys can be carried out on plants, processes or systems while they are still running. It eliminates the need for physical inspections on plant and minimises use of shut-down time.
