Reduce waste, improve reliability and safety with ultrasonic inspection
Gas leaks from a pressurized system, whistle at a pitch too high for humans to hear. By utilizing ultrasonic leak detection equipment we are able to detect equipment problems before they become costly or even catastrophic.
Find leaks in pressurized systems
Factories rely on compressed air, with complex systems of pipework spreading out across a building or site from the compressor. Compressed air is expensive and leaks are commonplace so regular checks with air leak detection equipment quickly pay for themselves. Some pressurized systems contain hazardous or dangerous gases, but ultrasonic inspection equipment quickly detects the initial signs for proactive plant safety management.
At best, leaks indicate money is being wasted. At worst, lives are at risk. In every case, ultrasonic leak detection is a proactive and reliable way of finding small problems before they become more.
High frequency warnings of other problems
Uses for ultrasound detection equipment go beyond gas systems. Bearings and pumps are examples of rotating equipment with distinctive acoustic signatures. Regular checks with ultrasonic inspection equipment can reveal problems, like poor lubrication and cavitation, before they lead to breakdowns.
Adding ultrasonic leak detection to your maintenance capabilities
When integrated into a predictive maintenance program, ultrasonic inspection provides valuable insights into equipment operation – optimizing maintenance scheduling, extending mean-time- between-failures (MTBF) and reducing lost production time. Even safety is improved.
With a long track record in predictive maintenance methods, ATS is able to develop route maps, determine appropriate intervals and implement data capture and analysis processes. Implementing a proactive program for ultrasonic inspection takes time and benefits from experience. ATS can provide both.
