Condition Monitoring (CM) is the process of monitoring a parameter of condition in machinery in order to identify a significant change which is indicative of a developing fault. It is a major component of predictive maintenance.
Noble Engineering Services has used Vibration Analysis (VA) in various environments to effectively reduce maintenance costs and equipment downtime by detecting equipment and component faults for better machine management. VA is a key component of a Condition Monitoring (CM) program, and is often referred to as Predictive Maintenance (PdM). All our consultants are qualified with either Cat II, Cat III or Cat IV through the Vibration Institute.
Motion Amplification is a revolutionary video-processing product and software package that detects subtle motion and amplifies that motion to a level visible with the naked eye. Every pixel becomes a vibration sensor creating millions of data points in an instant. With motion amplification you can open up the world of the unseen.
BEARING GUARD™ is an in-house developed product specifically designed to function as a multi channel protection system that is portable. This system allows portable online condition monitoring to provide the RMS Acceleration, Velocity and Temperature with alarming texting to any nominated mobile device.
Ultrasound detectors sense high-frequency signals and convert them into corresponding audible sounds while maintaining their original characteristics and qualities. Our consultants use Airborne Ultrasonics for internal hydraulic leakage, air/gas leaks and electrical discharge detection.
Infrared Thermography (IRT), Thermal Imaging, and Thermal Video are examples of infrared imaging science. Thermographic cameras detect radiation in the long-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum and is ideal for understanding the surface temperature of any visible machine component.
Oil analysis (OA) is the laboratory analysis of a lubricant's properties, suspended contaminants, and wear debris. OA is performed during routine predictive maintenance to provide meaningful and accurate information on lubricant and machine condition.
