Testing

Laser Alignment

Todays modern machines with higher speeds and tighter design specifications demand reliable, highly accurate shaft alignment which the conventional mechanical method cannot achieve. Previousy, alignment with dial indicators and straightedges has been the standard procedure mainly for the lack of alternative.

There are however many sources of potential error and loss of accuracy with this mechanical method.

Inaccurate alignment between coupled rotating machines impacts on plant operation and maintenance functions that will result in costly failures.

By implementing good shaft alignment practice you can expect:

  • Improve plant operating life and reliability
  • Reduce costs of spare parts such as, any of the above.
  • Reduce maintenance labour costs
  • Improve plant availability for fire protection
  • Improve plant operating safety
  • Reduce costs of power consumption on the plant
  • Obtain better plant insurance rates through better operating practice

Calibrated Non invasive Flow Testing

Periodically Fire pumps require re-calibrating against a (Non Intrusive) Digital Calibrated Flow Meter, Digital Tachometer and Pressure Transducer. This provides a flow against pressure curve that is a true indication of Pump performance.

This test is often utilised in arbitration between Insurers and their clients.

Once the Pumps have been returned to design specification the duties are certificated Since implementing this test in 2001 many sites have benefitted from reduced power and fuel consumptions and have experienced increased component longevity.
