Infrared thermometry data collection

Infrared thermometry data collection Rockwell Automation has recently added infrared thermography data collection to its suite of condition-based maintenance services. Complementing the company's existing vibration and oil analysis capabilities, infra-red thermography is a non-invasive condition-monitoring technology that monitors temperatures and thermal patterns while equipment is online and running full load. It can be used on a wide variety of equipment, including pumps, motors, bearings, pulleys, fans, gears, drives and conveyors to help manufacturers predict equipment failure and plan corrective action before a costly shutdown, equipment damage or personal injury occurs. "While no single condition-monitoring technology can provide a complete picture of an asset's health, infra-red technology is a valuable tool in an organisation's strategy to combat downtime," explains Ralph DeLisio, business manager for integrated condition monitoring with Rockwell Automation. "When thermography is combined with vibration and oil analysis as part of an overall predictive maintenance strategy, these tools allow manufacturers to efficiently and accurately detect problems before production is impacted, while providing valuable insight into the health of electrical and mechanical assets." Vibration, oil analysis and thermography are important tools in an integrated approach to strategic maintenance. Strategic maintenance blends the appropriate predictive, preventive and reactive activities for optimum return on the investment of time and money. Adding thermography to Rockwell Automation's portfolio of engineering and maintenance services helps provide users with an integrated view of electrical and mechanical asset health.
