Ultrasound Technology & Ultrasound Detection

Ultrasonic Condition Monitoring (Ucm) is the process of using ultrasound technology to detect changes in the condition of machinery. The ultrasound waves are used to identify potential problems, such as cracks or other damage before they cause major problems.

Ultrasonic Condition Monitoring methods have revolutionized condition monitoring and mechanical inspection. By using ultrasound instruments, it is possible to locate and determine the cause of many problems before they cause failures.

Applications for ultrasound condition monitoring are found in a wide variety of industries including:

  • Power Generation
  • Petrochemical
  • Mining
  • Manufacturing
  • Automotive

Ultrasound condition monitoring can be used to detect:

  • Bearing Failures
  • Lubrication Defects
  • Mechanical Looseness
  • Component Misalignment
  • Cavitation in Pumps and Compressors
  • Excessive Vibration
  • Worn Gears
  • Electrical Faults

Advantages of ultrasound condition monitoring:

  • Enables predictive maintenance to be carried out before failures occur
  • Reduces downtime and associated costs
  • Improves safety by reducing the likelihood of accidents
  • Increases equipment life
  • Contributes to improved product quality

At Failure Prevention we believe in providing the most cutting-edge products in Ultrasonic Condition Monitoring and vibration analysis technology. We offer a wide range of ultrasound condition monitoring services to help our clients keep their mechanical equipment running safely and efficiently.

We can find those air/gas leaks, vacuum leaks, and more in noisy environments.

Our ultrasound analysis uses best practices for finding compressed air/gas leaks, vacuum leaks, electrical faults (arcing, tracking & destructive corona), slow-speed bearings, etc.

We have extensive experience in locating these problems using SDT ultrasound equipment and ultrasonic sensors.

Compressed Air Leak Audit

Air/gas leaks are the most common areas of ultrasound analysis. Leakage problems produce a high-pitched ultrasound that is very easy to hear with the proper equipment.

The ultrasound emitted from a leak is proportional to the rate of the leak, which makes it easy to locate and quantify the problem.

We have extensive experience with ultrasound leak detection in a wide variety of industries and applications, from small, compressed air systems to very large industrial plants.

Vacuum Leak Audit

Vacuum leaks can be more difficult to find than air/gas leaks because they are often at a lower frequency. We have the experience and equipment to find these leaks quickly and efficiently.

Electrical Fault Detection

Arcing and tracking are two of the most common electrical faults that we find.

Arcing can cause fires and damage equipment, while tracking can lead to slowly deteriorating insulation and eventually costly downtime. We use ultrasound to find these faults before they cause major problems.

Gearing Fault Detection

Worn gears can cause a variety of problems, from decreased efficiency to complete failure.

Ultrasound is the best way to find these faults before they cause major problems.

Compressor Cavitation Detection

Cavitation is a common problem in pumps and compressors.

It can cause damage to the pump or compressor and lead to increased downtime.

Ultrasound is the best way to find these faults before they cause major problems.

At Failure Prevention, we use ultrasound condition monitoring (UCM) to provide predictive maintenance services for our clients. UCM is a cutting-edge technology that helps us locate and determine the cause of many problems before they cause failures.

Stop wasting air and start lowering energy costs

The U.S. Department of Energy Compressed Air Challenge has found that 25% of compressed air is lost to leaks. Often plants find they are losing more than that.

FPA’s certified ultrasonic inspectors conduct compressed air leak detection programs to find leaks and help you lower energy costs.

Fixing leaks provides immediate payback while increasing service life, increasing capacity for production surges, and stabilizing system pressure.
