  1. Ultrasonic Air Leak Detection Service UK


    Ultrasonic Air Leak Detection Service

    The advantage of Ultrasonic leak detection technology is simple to understand. Ultrasound is a high frequency, short wave signal. When compared with the sounds we humans can hear, the size of the sound waves are extremely small. This property provides advantages: it is very directional, can be used in noisy environments and are easy to use.
    Leaks cost money; affect product quality and can wreak havoc with the environment. Ultrasonic leak detection can often locate the problem, whether the leakage occurred in a liquid or a gas system.
    The reason ultrasound is so versatile is that it detects the sound of a leak. When a fluid (liquid or gas) leaks, it moves from the high pressure side through the leak site to the low pressure side, where it expands rapidly and produces a turbulent flow. This turbulence has strong ultrasonic components. The intensity of the ultrasonic signal falls off rapidly from the source, allowing the exact spot of a leak to be located.
    Vacuum leaks may be located in the same manner; the only difference being that the turbulence will occur within the vacuum chamber. For this reason, the intensity of the sound will be less than that of a pressurized leak. Though it is most effective with low-mid to gross leaks, the ease of ultrasonic leak detection makes it useful for most vacuum leak problems.
    Steam traps are also inspected easily with ultrasonic translators. During examination, the steam trap is touched with the contact probe. By listening to the trap operation and observing the meter, trap condition can be interpreted. The speed and simplicity of this type of test allow every trap in a plant to be routinely inspected.
    In compressed air systems it is easy to evaluate the financial costs of leaks on the system if details of the compressor are known.
    Using our Estimator the leaks found are calculated into an annual lost air cost using the kW/Hr costs and the CFM values detected by the ultraprobe. This gives the client an estimation of how much they are paying to feed the leaks.

  2. Infrared / Thermographic Inspection Service UK

    Why Do We Provide A Thermal Image Service?

    thermal image survey
    Thermography is used as it is a highly flexible and effective diagnostic technique due to its:-
    1. Non-contact implementation.
    2. Can safely measure the temperature of moving objects, very hot objects (Up to 2000°C) and high voltage objects.
    3. Thermal Imaging gives us an overall temperature profile of the subject rather than the temperature at one point.
    4. Images can and should be taken live.
    5. Determine when maintenance is required.
    6. Planned maintenance instead of costly outages.
    7. Increased output.
    8. We control the equipment instead of the equipment controlling us.

  3. Balancing / Imbalance Correction Service UK


    vbBalancer Screenshot
    vbBalancer Screen
    Imbalance exists to some degree in all machines, and is characterised by vibration at a frequency of once per revolution. In the absence of high resolution analysis equipment, imbalance is usually first to get the blame for excessive once per revolution vibration. A state of imbalance occurs when the centre of mass of a rotating system does not coincide with the centre of rotation.
    Imbalance can be caused by a number of things including incorrect assembly, material build-up, rotor sag, thermal growth and component loss.
    Along with misalignment, unbalance causes more premature and catastrophic failures in rotating machinery than any other fault.
    We are able to balance all sizes of fans in-situ in either single or dual planes without the need to remove them from their locations using our state of the art portable vibration data collectors with built-in balancing programs.
    Benefits of balancing In-Situ.
    1. Pre Balance vibration checks can be carried out to pinpoint the issue before balancing commences.
    2. Can be carried out whilst adjacent machinery remains operable.
    3. No requirement to dismantle and reassemble equipment to enable balancing of machine components.
    4. Reduces downtime, labour and material costs.
    5. Can be planned into scheduled short time outages such as mould or process changes.
    6. Extends bearing and machine life.
    7. Reduces the possibility of catastrophic failures.
    8. Improves safety.
    9. Improves production quality.
    Example Data from a Balancing Run
    The vbBalancer / vb7 provide a post balance summary report.
    Post balance summary report

    A before and after vibration plot can also be included in any post balance reports.

    Need something more dynamic?
    If you need something more capable of reacting to imbalance whilst your machinery is still running take a look at our online options.
    Automatic Online Active Ring Balancers - Constantly monitors vibration levels and makes balance weight corrections in real time without the need to stop.
    vbOnline - Monitor your machinery online and plan interventions armed with upto the second information.

  5. Proviso Systems Ltd - Condition Monitoring Services

    Condition Monitoring Services UK

    Our multi-technology Condition Monitoring Services programmes may include some or all of the following methods, which then enables a comprehensive Maintenance Strategy and Schedule of Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) to be implemented:
    vibration_analystAs a recognised leader in the field of condition monitoring service techniques, we utilise vibration analysis in a wide variety of rotating machinery applications. Potential problems such as imbalance, looseness, instability of mountings, gearbox and bearing deterioration, misalignment of couplings, and lubrication deficiency can all be easily detected. Early identification of these machine conditions reduces the chances of secondary component damage, improves reliability and therefore maintains efficiency.
    Oil Lab
    Our on-site fluid sampling and advanced lab analysis enable us to monitor oil condition and contamination in addition to identifying abnormal machine wear and debris levels. Lubrication programmes can then be introduced, which will improve machine life and help save you money.

    Motor Thermal Image
    Thermal imaging has proved to be a critical element of the condition monitoring process. We utilise the latest in thermal imaging technology to provide a highly accurate indicator of emerging problems.
    Electrical surveys, are used to identify high resistance joints, overloading and localised heating.
    Mechanical surveys help to uncover component deterioration, friction, misalignment and temperature dependant process disorders,
    Building surveys show heat loss through inadequate insulation across the building envelope and assist in the location of leaks.
