Protection for switchboards, switchgear, HV equipment, transformers, motors, pumps, cargo gear, azipods, thrusters bearings…etc.
Compact form non-contact IR sensors can be positioned to permanently monitor rotating contact areas, i.e. motor end covers with bearing keeps, shaft support pillar bearings, pump white metal bearings…etc.
It is often the case that the failure of ‘small cost’ items, such as bearings, can cause extremely expensive damaged to their associated machinery. As bearings start to deteriorate they tend to generate heat – this can be measured.
By monitoring bearing temperatures, this increase in normal running temperature can be flagged up before total failure and therefore hopefully save the parent machine.
Switchboard failures are often preceded by bus-bar and switchgear temperature rise – again this can be measured.
Bus-bar fish plate joints can, due to vibration, work loose thereby causing heat rise through increased contact resistance.
Support insulator breakdown can cause surface tracking - again causing dangerous heat rise.
