Move Over Vibration Analysis

Move Over Vibration Analysis Vibration analysis (VA) has helped maintenance technicians gauge the health of motors, gearboxes, and other industrial gears without dismantling the equipment. However, VA requires a great deal of skill to effectively diagnose equipment, such as orienting sensors along the axis of vibration in the X, Y, and Z direction. VA will not identify a simple lack of lubrication and by the time equipment is generating a vibration, it's already damaged. Now, a new acoustic emission (AE) technique uses sensors with built-in signal processing capability to overcome these and many of VA's other challenges.

Rebuild Your Strainers for Additional Years
Tate Andale
Flanged Immersion Heaters
Process Heating Company, Inc.

Rebuild Your Strainers for Additional Years Tate Andale's Rebuild Program can help save thousands of dollars by restoring instead of replacing older strainers. Often internal components can be replaced without being removed from the pipeline. Tate Andale has the parts needed for Elliott, Andale, or Tate Temco brands. All Tate products are made in the USA.

Flanged Immersion Heaters Perfect for use in tanks, large vats, and reservoirs, Flanged Immersion Heaters consist of a standard 150# or 300# flange for mounting. These heaters are virtually 100% efficient, easily controlled, and are one of the most widely used methods of heating liquids. PHCo offers many advantages over traditional style tubular elements.

IS Your Plant Safe?

IS Your Plant Safe? Explosive gases are a concern for maintenance technicians because an electric spark during repairs can lead to a catastrophic event. For these technicians, an understanding of Intrinsic Safety (IS) ratings is critical, from knowing the T-level gas classifications to having a device-level understanding of energy in passive components, stored-energy components, and energy generation sources.

Contracts Boost Building Automation Profits

Contracts Boost Building Automation Profits The latest research tells building automation integrators to focus on building maintenance contracts as a bulkhead against a floundering economy. Facility managers should be aware of the profit margins inherent to maintenance contracts, as well as the benefits they can offer, such as analytics, remote monitoring, and benchmarking, and then strike the right balance between the two.

Saving on Spares

Saving on Spares Moving into a new facility is a great time to reevaluate your spare part management system. This archived Webinar discusses how to save money on stock while also being ready for equipment failure; how to maximize operational readiness; and how to manage errors in reorders, overstocks, and critically-needed inventory.

Selling Sustainability to Management

Selling Sustainability to Management Selling energy saving initiatives to management and the finance department isn't about how much energy new lighting or a building automation program will save on electrical bills. You need a story about buildings, systems, and inhabitants and how they all work together to improve level of service while saving money. Be sure to check out the videos on this page about managing large projects, bottom up approaches, and much more.

New Standard Improves Maintenance

New Standard Improves Maintenance Fieldbus Foundation industrial networks are used extensively in many industrial applications in the U.S. Now, a new Fieldbus test specification will provide guidance to device coupler manufacturers to make sure their products pass specific functional tests for input impedance, short-circuit reaction time, and bus voltage consumption, ensuring both performance and safety.

Paper Maker Boosts Bottom Line

Paper Maker Boosts Bottom Line By adopting an enterprise asset management (EAM) program, Mohawk Fine Paper was able to extend equipment lifetimes by moving from reactive to proactive asset management, but that wasn't the only benefit. With equipment rolling smoother, the paper manufacturer saw its electrical bills drop by 15% and more savings are expected in the future.

Asbestos Cement Maintenance and Repair
Symbols Describe Welding Examinations

Asbestos Cement Maintenance and Repair This standard describes work practices for asbestos cement products when maintenance, renovation, and repair are required. Common tasks that can result in exposure to asbestos fibers are covered. Such tasks include drilling and/or cutting holes in roofing, siding, and pipes. The work practices described in ASTM E2394 are supplemented with regulatory, contractual, training, and supervisory provisions.

For more information on IHS standards, visit us here.

Symbols Describe Welding Examinations Learn how symbols are used to convey welding, brazing, and nondestructive examination information. Presented by the American Welding Society, the symbols present a system for the graphical representation of nondestructive examination methods with conventions for specifying, at a minimum, the location and extent of their application. The symbols are not intended to represent welding or brazing design practice.
