Pinpoint Predictive Maintenance provides the following ultrasound services:
Compressed/Vacuum air and gas leaks
Gas compressor packages (cooling lines, valves, pumps, flanges, piping leaks)
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.
