Ultrasonic Detection Service
What You Can't Hear Can Hurt You - And Your Bottom Line
Missouri River Energy Services (MRES), our power supplier, can do an ultrasonic inspection at your facility.
Bearing failures, compressed air or gas leaks, or process steam leaks can cost your company thousands of dollars in electric bills, downtime and lost profits. An ultrasonic inspection can help you schedule repairs and avoid downtime.
What is an Ultrasonic Inspection?
Leaks in compressed air or gas systems, vibrations in motors, and the flow of electricity past insulators all create noise that cannot be heard by the human ear. Ultrasonic "translator" equipment is used to convert the noise and vibrations into sounds that can be heard and pinpointed. During an ultrasonic inspection, the noise is monitored, analyzed and reported to maintenance personnel by a technician who is trained and certified in the operation of ultrasonic equipment.
Compressed air is industry's "fourth utility", but is seldom taken into consideration as a contributing cost of production. The cost of producing compressed air is typically blended into overhead and is often thought of as "free". It Is Not. MRES can estimate your cost to produce compressed air and the savings associated with fixing leaks.
ALP will rebate 50% of the total cost of the service up to a maximum of $500. Call our office to inquire about ultrasonic testing.
