Ultrasound inspection provides early warning of bearing failure, detects lack of lubrication, prevents over lubrication and can be used on all bearing speeds.
Ultrasound Inspection may be performed on both open access and enclosed electrical equipment at all voltages (low, medium, and high). When electrical apparatus such as switchgear, transformers, insulators or disconnects, and splices fail, the result can be catastrophic. This is just as true in industrial plants as it is in the power transmission and distribution side.
Electrical discharges such as arcing, tracking or, in higher voltages, corona have the potential to create failure and costly downtime. In enclosed equipment, if left undetected, these conditions can become a source of an arc flash incident, which can result in severe injury or death. Arcing, tracking and corona produce ultrasound and are detected with Ultraprobe
