Thermal imaging is a proven, effective tool in both preventative maintenance and repair. Infrared technology allows the viewer to gain awareness of a system’s operating conditions and can provide insight into problems long before failure occurs. No preventative maintenance program is complete without incorporating thermal imaging into the process. Infrared thermography minimizes costly, unplanned downtime, allows plant maintenance to trend wear on equipment to set outage schedules, decreases troubleshooting downtime and provides comparison data to aide in identifying problems.
Using our thermal imaging camera we can view thermal signatures of electrical systems, motors, transformers, pulleys, belts, or any other moving part to show signs of impending failure. We can also survey buildings, piping systems, duct systems, vessels, and insulation systems to show heat loss or leakage.
Once images are taken, we can use those to develop full reports of findings and recommendations. These reports can be built to suit each application and can be delivered electronically or as a bound document. We are Snell Group trained and are certified in thermography.
If you need back up, emergency, prime, or even temporary power, call us for your generator needs. We offer turn key installation of all generator brands. Whether you need a small natural gas unit for your home or business, or a large industrial unit for your plant or natural gas facility, we can take care of you. We do installations of both diesel and natural gas units.
We offer maintenance packages for all generators we install as well as existing units, including maintenance for emissions certified engines. We can also take care of generator load banking to make sure your generator is at peak performance when you need it.
Variable Speed Drives
We are an Eaton certified and trained installer, commissioner and service center. We also sell and install all other brands of drives, at customer request. From installation to programming and troubleshooting a problem, we can take care of it all. With any Eaton drive that we sell and commission, the life of the warranty is doubled to 2 full years from date of commission since we are a certified start up center. This could save hundreds or even thousands in repair or replacement of a drive that normally would lose warranty after one year. We can assist in finding the right drive to suit your application and needs, whether you are in need of precise motor control and speed, or needing a source of three phase power for your motor.
Power Factor Correction
Are penalties due to poor power factor costing you to operate your facility? This can be corrected with the installation of a power factor correction capacitor. Working with your electrical utility provider, we size and install the capacitor bank that’s right for your application and usage. In many cases, the complete installation is paid for within two years from the date of commissioning; although, results may vary due to power factor before correction or amount of power consumption. Having a capacitor bank installed can potentially save thousands per month in utility provider penalties.
