Condition Monitoring

Electric Motor Testing

Designed with longevity in mind, electric motors are made to function safely, economically, and perpetually. In theory, proper care and use of these components will ensure many years of successful operation. However, the real world is a different story, where motors are subjected to numerous environmental and operational hazards that cause thermal stress on the windings. Thermal stresses degrade the insulation quality of the motor, thereby motoranalyzer2_with_leads-lrdiminishing its life expectancy.

That is why monitoring the operating condition of motors has become such an important aspect of predictive maintenance programs. With electric motor testing we can monitor and trend the condition of AC induction, synchronous, wound rotor, DC motors, and their circuits. Testing capabilities are:

  • Power Quality
  • Power Circuit
  • Stator
  • Rotor
  • Insulation
  • Air gap Problems

SUMICO provides the services of electric motor testing with state of the art PdM A motor testers. It helps in reducing the overall manufacturing cost of the product as well as enhances the reliability of the plant assets.

Laser Alignment

Misalignment is hidden root cause of failure. SUMICO provides the services for shaft alignment and belt alignment.

Laser Alignment Kit- Machinery Health Management:vibration2

The CSI 2130 or CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyzer is used to precisely laser align machine trains before returning them to service. The CSI 8225 Machinery health alignment system is designed to get the job done quickly and accurately. It provides a confidence check for every alignment correction before the machine is moved. Review alternate solutions for a bolt-bound machine with the touch of a button. Adjust the laser heads to a convenient angle to watch the real-time display of changes to alignment. Instant feedback on tolerance is provided in the form of an intuitive bull’s-eye graph. When the job is complete, load the data into AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager for documentation and reporting.

Infrared Thermography

In Infrared Thermography, we use temperature as a parameter to monitor the condition of any machine in operating condition. SUMICO has certified Analysts from ITC (Infrared Training Center), Sweden in his services squad to provide the services of Infrared Thermography to the relevant industry. To take a thermal image there is no need to stop your machine. You don’t need to get in contact with your machine. You only need to get closer as much as you can

Field Balancing

Field Imbalance is defined as the force created when the center of mass is not the center of rotation.

The causes of Imbalance are:

  • Eccentric components
  • Incorrect Assembly
  • Voids in castings
  • Wear & corrosion
  • Thermal distortion
  • Foreign matter
  • Structural damage
  • Losse parts

By using Field Balancing techniques such as Graphic Vector Method, balancing with a Strobe and Influence Coefficient Method, we can reduce operating costs by energy savings from reduced power consumption,

  • By prolonging life of bearings and other components,
  • By maintenance savings in spare parts and labour,
  • By increasing product quality and by decreasing downtime

Vibration Analysis

Unbalanced bearings are always causes of machinery vibration. There comes a time when simply replacing bearings or balancing does not solve the problem. In depth analysis of your particular problem and determining the ‘root vibrationcause’ of vibration is the objective of our vibration analysis services. So you need the best tools available to manage your machinery availability. You get the fastest and most powerful vibration data collector out there. Small and lightweight, it’s part of an entire line of industry-leading analyzers. You can stay up-to date on the condition that can bring your asset down, like wear, looseness, imbalance, shaft alignment, motor electrical faults and pump cavitations. Which means you can manage your machinery instead of your machinery manages you.
