Infrared helps spot rotating-equipment failures before disaster strikes
Pumps, fans, compressors and other motor-driven rotating equipment are essential to manufacturing, commercial and institutional enterprises, from fluid handling systems in petrochemical plants to large air comfort systems in shopping malls. Many facilities monitor this type of equipment on a regular basis, because often a simple problem like lubrication can be spotted and fixed inexpensively, before the entire unit burns out. Thermal imaging is especially useful for monitoring rotating equipment since many impending failures are accompanied by overheating. Learn what to look for...
