ULTRASOUND DETECTION

Pinpoint Predictive Maintenance provides the following ultrasound services:

  • Compressed/Vacuum air and gas leaks

  • Steam traps/valves 

  • Gas compressor packages (cooling lines, valves, pumps, flanges, piping leaks)

  • Grease lubrication

  • Underground fluid leaks

  • Bearings, pumps, motors

  • Pump cavitation issues

  • Electrical arc flash prevention (arcing and tracking detection)

  • Corona (partial discharge)

Inspections are non-intrusive, and performed during production.
