Predictive Maintenance and Condition Monitoring of Plant Equipment and Power Distribution Systems:

ETS provides state-of-the-art predictive maintenance testing that quantifies the condition of plant equipment during its normal operation, clearly identifying problems and trends in machine performance. Down time is costly and leads to quick fixes rather than root cause failure analysis. Predictive maintenance optimizes equipment performance and is an investment in plant productivity. Using the tenets of Reliability Centered Maintenance surveys lead to:

The technologies employed include vibration analysis, infrared thermal imaging, and motor current signature analysis. In those instances where the failure mode requires more advanced analysis techniques, ETS will diagnose the problem and make remediation recommendations as outlined in other sections of the website.

Vibration Analysis:

Vibration Analysis

Using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, ETS determines the condition of equipment through machine vibration analysis including trending of overall performance. ETS interprets survey data and reports an accurate and easy-to-understand assessment of your equipment performance as well as recommendations for corrective action.

Commonly Diagnosed Equipment Includes:

Infrared Thermal Imaging:

Infrared Thermal Imaging

Extensive expertise and experience in electrical infrared inspection, includes a thorough working knowledge of NFPA 70 B, recommended practices for electrical maintenance and safety procedures that include NFPA 70E, CFR 29 part 1900-1901 (OSHA) and NEC. All work is conducted using proper PPE. View sample report >>

Motor Current Signature Analysis:

Motor Current Signature Analysis

ETS is a source for motor current signature analysis which is fundamental to maintaining the condition of these assets. Motor tests are designed to monitor and trend the condition of AC induction, synchronous, and DC motors and their circuits. Motor electrical properties are quantified in both offline and online modes showing immediate faults or trends in the change of the operating condition of:

  1. Incoming power quality
  2. Wiring leading up to the motor
  3. Condition of the motor winding insulation
  4. Concentricity of the air gap
  5. Condition of the stator
  6. Condition of the rotor
