Ultrasonic Technology is utilized by MISTRAS Services in many aspects of its Predictive Maintenance and Inspection Services. We use the latest in ultrasonic analyzers to accurately locate air, gas, and steam leaks throughout noisy plant areas filled with machines, valves, piping, steam traps, tanks, etc.
Our expert Leak Detection Service precisely locates many leaks that plant personnel are not even aware of, some are small but some may be quite large. It surprises most of our clients how much energy is wasted by the summation of these leaks, and therefore how much money can be saved by repairing them.
Ultrasonic Technology is also used by MISTRAS PdM
Services to analyze bearing wear and lubrication conditions. Ultrasonic readings from the bearings can be analyzed to determine if the bearing is worn, and recorded for trending and future analysis, and also observed in real time to determine if the bearing is properly lubricated. In fact, our certified technicians can listen while grease is being added to the bearing and tell when it has enough, so as to not over grease.
MISTRAS Inspection Services also uses Ultrasonic Technology, along with other methods like die penetrant, magnetic particle, radiography, and strain gage testing, to look for cracks or failures in structures, piping, vessels, etc. Our goal is to be your total NDT
service company working closely with your personnel to solve maintenance needs through predictive, proactive, and inspection services.
