NON-INTRUSIVE TESTING:
The Safety Aspects of Predictive Maintenance

Most maintenance managers are familiar with the scenario. When a piece of equipment becomes suspect or begins to fail, people usually test with the equipment most readily available - our eyes, ears, and hands. These are "handy" tools, but often not as sensitive as we need to find the problem. Even more important is the fact that these kinds of equipment evaluations are not safe. Ask anyone who has acted as a human thermometer and laid their hand on a blistering hot piece of malfunctioning machinery.

By incorporating Infrared Thermal Imaging and Ultrasound Detection equipment, Peterson Predictive Maintenance can conduct completely non-intrusive testing of systems and equipment. This means having the ability to gather detailed diagnostic information without requiring physical contact - sometimes up to 300 feet away.

Eliminating both the need for close proximity testing and physical contact drastically increases the safety of this diagnostic testing. Because this type of testing is much safer, there is no need to shut equipment down, or even slow it down, to gather information. The result is that, by running under normal work loads and  normal work speeds, the information we collect is far more accurate in predicting problem areas and need for maintenance.

By leveraging these cutting edge technologies, Peterson Predictive Maintenance is able to quickly provide extremely accurate information in the safest way possible - therefore providing the greatest value for your predictive maintenance program.
