Large machinery systems, particularly those with rotating parts, need constant monitoring in order to detect minor weaknesses or areas of friction that may later cause breakdown or other serious issues. Without this, there are risks of massive reductions in productivity and significant costs for repair.
Territory Instruments implements condition monitoring systems that incorporate sensors on all bearings to detect potential issues and allow for timely maintenance and repairs to take place long before they turn into problems.
This innovative technology uses thermal cameras to take photographs of the internal workings of a process or system in motion. Any ‘hot spots’ shown on the thermal image identify areas where heat is being generated by wear, weakness, excessive friction or potential electrical faults.
