Barre, VT, January 18, 2022: The MARCON Training Symposium, March 8-10, 2022, will now be a Virtual Conference beginning at 10:00 am EST daily. The Maintenance and Reliability Training Symposium hosted by The University of Tennessee Reliability and Maintainability Center is an annual event usually held at the Knoxville Convention Center.
The ability to identify mechanical faults will be directly related to the amount and accuracy of collected drive train data. Vendor software varies in the amount of drive train information that can be included in the database. They also vary in the capability of automated fault frequency identification. It is highly recommended that you conduct a “drive train map” that will include all applicable information such as:
Si realizamos una búsqueda rápida en internet acerca de ‘Mantenimiento Centrado en la Confiabilidad’ podríamos encontrar cientos de links con información, o aun compañías que aplican muchas diferentes tecnologías de monitoreo de la condición de los equipos. Aun cuando este es un tema de actualidad para muchas compañías, podrían existir empresas o plantas que practican la vieja escuela de mantenimiento donde típicamente se realizaba una sola inspección anual a algunos de sus equipos, usualmente eléctricos, sin un programa claro de mantenimiento.
Barre, VT, January 12, 2022: The Snell Group, is pleased to announce their new Webinar Wednesday program. The Snell Group will present one free webinar each Wednesday morning on training in IR and EMT technologies. “Our goal is sharing the techniques necessary to gain the greatest benefits from thermal imaging. By spreading knowledge with online learning, you quickly grasp important concepts, camera operation, and inspection techniques that will allow you to deliver high-quality infrared inspections to your customers” said Jim Fritz, President, and CEO of The Snell Group.
One of the first sayings I heard when I began using thermal imagers 28 years ago was "all heat loss from windows disappears above the third floor." Somewhere around the same time, after having looked at many windows, I quickly learned to use the term "appears to be" when referring to thermal images, especially those taken of buildings. It quickly became very clear why "appears to be" is an important saying that is appropriate for use by the thermographer.
If you were asked as a thermographer to try and identify the weakest link to be found with the variety of modern (i.e., reliable & feature-rich) thermal imaging systems available in the marketplace, many of you might be resigned to just saying it is the battery. Pretty much any new camera out there does everything you need and then some. Even battery life is now typically outstanding, lasting upwards of 4+ hours for many models.

When it comes to electric motor testing and maintenance, one of the chief concerns is motor temperature. In an effort to keep motors from overheating, special attention is typically paid to two values usually found on a motor nameplate: service factor and temperature rise. These two values should be considered together to ensure that motors are not allowed to run at loads that will cause them to suffer heat damage to the winding insulation.
Like many other types of inspections, conditions are among the factors that can make or break a successful endeavor. It’s my opinion that in Building inspections the conditions are more of a factor since there are so many elements to consider. The intent here is not to discourage inspections of buildings, but to educate, edify, and inform so that you can make the most of your efforts. Whether inspecting indoors or outdoors, there are many conditions to consider. Let’s take a look at them.
