Any industrial environment can incorporate condition monitoring into its maintenance routine in order to get the benefits.
If a component wears, it is susceptible to performance degradation. This is especially true when it comes to mechanical elements that move - such as rotating machinery, compressors, pumps or motors - or electrical elements that are in high-demand.
Condition monitoring is especially useful for identifying and analysing:
- Stress waves (which can lead to cracks and other faults)
- Electrical signals
From acute thermography through to spark-proof cameras for potentially explosive environments and acoustic imaging to detect air leaks in compressed air systems as well as inspection software, there is a FLIR technology to suit virtually every inspection need.
For inspecting the temperature of elements around your facility, hand-held thermal imaging systems can yield sizable savings. For static elements, a fixed thermal camera system can offer similar benefits.
For electrical components, measuring currents, and quality assurance testing, FLIR also has a robust range of test and measurement tools. For detecting gas, air leaks or partial discharge in your machinery components or production line, explore FLIR’s range of gas detection cameras or acoustic imaging cameras.
What’s more, your insight isn’t limited to your device; FLIR’s intuitive software takes predictive maintenance a step further, enabling impactful analysis of even the most demanding datasets.
