Ultrasound on-site, non-destructive inspections.
Acumen eSolutions offers on-site Ultra-sound inspections and survey services using UE Systems Ultra-sound technology and ISO Certified Level II Ultrasound Inspectors.
The non-destructive Ultra-sound surveys work exceptionally well for any of the following applications:
Bearing Health Survey
Ultrasound provides the ultimate early warning of bearing failure. It also detects lack of lubrication and prevents over lubrication on bearings.

Bearing in a bad condition
Bearing in a good condition
Ultra-sound inspection may be performed on both open access and enclosed electrical equipment and switch gear at all voltages (low, medium and high) including identifying arcing, tracking or, in higher voltages, corona

Steam trap inspection.
Ultra-sound inspection makes it easy to identify problems with the operation of steam traps and readily determine operating conditions while steam traps are on-line.

Ultrasound assisted Bearing Lubrication.
Ultrasound assisted bearing lubrication has many advantages. Studies show that up to 80% of bearing failures are directly lubrication-related.
Ultrasound can be used to prevent both over and under lubrication of bearings preventing the related bearing failures.

Determine operating conditions while valves are on-line. We can determane if a valve is open, closed or leaking.

Ultrasound is very effective in identifying early warning of potential problems or failure in a wide range of mechanical applications including any moving parts such as pumps, motors, conveyors, gear & gear boxes, couplings, fans, compressors, robots, etc.

Ultra-sound leak detection covers a wide range of leaks: pressure or vacuum and any gas or steam. We also have intrinsically safe Ultraprobe 9000IS to use in areas or gases where intrinsically safe equipment is required.
