Webinar: Ultrasound for Reliability and Energy Efficiency (in Dutch)

28 October, 13h - free attendance

UE Systems would like to invite you to participate in this webinar where the following topics will be discussed: Ultrasound Technology for Reliability and Improving Energy Efficiency.

The webinar will be presented by Peter Boon, UE Systems` Regional Manager for the Benelux. Peter will share his experience and knowledge which he has gained in recent years in implementing this technique in various sectors.

Date: 28 October, 13h to 14h
The following topics will be discussed during the webinar:

Improve Energy Efficiency

* Leak detection & Leak audits: Compressed air and Gases
* Steam trap inspections

Reliability: inspection and condition monitoring of bearings
* Trending with dB levels
* Slow speed assets
* Condition-based lubrication with ultrasound
* Online condition monitoring (4cast and OnTrak)

Safety during electrical inspections

* Safe measurement of electrical components through ultrasound
* Diagnose electrical faults using Spectrum Analysis

Slow Speed Bearing Monitoring with Ultrasound
How is Ultrasound used to inspect slow speed bearings Introduction As maintenance and reliability professionals, we must ensure that the assets that we are responsible for are operating as they were designed and installed for. The hope is to move more towards predictive maintenance rather than reactive maintenance when a machine fails. It has been proven that when plants and facilities have a robust proactive maintenance program, that facility will operate more safely, with less downtime, and with improved product quality. Maintenance and reliability professionals have tools at their disposal to use to monitor asset health on a routine basis. Similar to the way a doctor may use a stethoscope to listen to a patient’s heartbeat, or a thermometer to measure the patient’s temperature, the maintenance and reliability professional uses condition monitoring tools that can help to assess the health of a mechanical asset. How Does Ultrasound Work? All operating equipment, most leakage problems, and electrical discharges all produce

4Site - Continuous Monitoring of Electrical Assets Online Monitoring Solutions for Critical Electric Transmission and Distribution Equipment
4Site - Continuous Monitoring of Electrical Assets
Online Monitoring Solutions for Critical Electric Transmission and Distribution Equipment Always Listening The 4Site is listening in real-time for the first sign of high frequency sounds produced by arcing, tracking & corona. Non-Invasive Utilizing the power of airborne ultrasound, there is no contact with the electrical components of the equipment being monitored, making installation safer and easier. Optimized Data The 4Site is designed to reduce data overload and alert by exception. While the 4Site is always listening, it will only transmit informative data if a threshold is crossed and eliminating the need to transmit healthy data. Scalability Each 4Site is designed to monitor up to 4 cabinets simultaneously in one unit. Continuous Monitoring of Electrical Assets When electrical systems such as switch gear, transformers, insulators or disconnects and splices fail, the results can be catastrophic. The average cost of a critical electrical asset failure is greater than $500K per event and with the aging equipment and less than 5% of critical electrical

Using Ultrasound to Enhance Energy Efficiency How to save energy by using Ultrasound technology
Using Ultrasound to Enhance Energy Efficiency
How to save energy by using Ultrasound technology One of today’s greatest challenges for maintenance & reliability teams is to improve energy efficiency - high energy prices and global competition dictate a need to reduce energy waste and improve system efficiencies whenever possible. A major contributor to energy waste is leaks: both in compressed air systems and steam traps. Ultrasound inspection instruments can easily detect these leaks, leading to potential energy savings. Detecting Compressed Air Leaks with Ultrasound Contrary to what some might think, compressed air is not free. In fact, it is estimated that more than 50 percent of all compressed air systems have energy efficiency problems that should be corrected. These losses can be quite costly. Around 30% of all industrial compressed air is usually lost to leaks, resulting in huge losses. A leak that is just 1cm can cost a plant upwards of €15.000 per year if it goes undetected. Ultrasound instruments detect the turbulent flow produced as the compressed

How Ultrasound Bearing Inspection Works
How Ultrasound Bearing Inspection Works
Mechanical movements produce a wide spectrum of sound. One of the major contributors to excessive stress in machinery is friction. Ultrasound instruments detect friction. By focusing on a narrow band of high frequencies, the Ultraprobe from UE Systems detects subtle changes in amplitude and sound quality produced by operating equipment. It then heterodynes these normally undetectable sounds down into the audible range where they are heard through headphones and observed on a display panel for trending, comparison, and analysis. It has been established that ultrasound monitoring provides early warning of bearing failure. Various stages of bearing failure have been established. An 8 dB gain over baseline indicates pre-failure or lack of lubrication. A 12 dB increase establishes the very beginning of the failure mode. A 16 dB gain indicates advanced failure condition while a 35-50 dB gain warns of catastrophic failure. For those who utilize ultrasound spectral analysis,
