Vibration as the main field of RITEC’s activities, has traditionally been associated with trouble in machines-wear, malfunction, noise, and structural damage. In more recent years, however, vibration has been used to save industry millions of dollars in machine downtime. Evaluation of changes in levels of machine vibration has become an important part of most maintenance programs. Similar evaluations are used to solve design problems as well as to establish the cause of chronic malfunctions and failures.
Through the periodic collection of relevant dynamic (e.g. Vibration) and process data of a given asset, RITEC's teams of analysts can determine the current condition, as well as infer the remaining useful life of a machine (or its subcomponents). This allows Maintenance teams to optimize scheduling and planning of maintenance intervals and spare parts, as well as increase uptime and reliability.
Motor Current Signature Analysis (MCSA) is an integral component for the condition monitoring of electric drivers. Through the collection of the input current in a loaded state, insight into the condition of an induction motor's components such as rotor bar can be deduced. This non-intrusive technique, allows for online evaluation of an electrical machines condition without the need for stoppage.
Ultrasound testing enables the detection of: Air Leaks in compressed air systems, Bearing Lubrication Problems, Partial Discharge in electrical systems, as well as Steam Trap and Valve Testing.
Vibration Motion Amplification
By using high-speed video to collect data, equivalent to millions of accelerometers, while amplifying and slowing the vibratory motion at desired frequencies to the human visual threshold, the analysis and quantification of vibratory motion up to 640 Hz provides a comprehensive understanding of an object in motion.
