Remote Monitoring with Ultrasound: Solutions for Improved Equipment Reliability
Manager of US Operations
UE Systems, Inc.
Airborne and structure-borne ultrasound technology has become a major player in predictive and preventive maintenance. Ultrasound has been proven and accepted by maintenance and reliability professionals globally across many industry and manufacturing sectors. With the advancements in technology and software, potential electrical and mechanical failures can be diagnosed early; therefore, allowing for more time to plan, schedule, kit, and perform work that would have otherwise been more reactive. Using ultrasound for condition monitoring impacts costs, increases productivity and best of all, improves safety. This presentation will focus on remote continuous monitoring applications using ultrasound, the need to monitor assets continuously for improved asset health measurements and data, and where we are seeing more and more guarding and shielding of assets. Remote monitoring with ultrasound can become a critical tool to help you continue to safely monitor your assets..
Certification is one of the most frequently cited credentials for practicing infrared thermographers. In this Tip we discuss the importance of Level III certification and why thermographers need to train and certify to the highest level possible.
