Fault Finding

Faults and breakdowns can cost your company a lot of time, and money. Finding the fault, and being able to repair it quickly and efficiently, is essential to minimising your downtime. Some of the common cause of industrial electrical faults include: Open circuit faults. These types of faults are often easily identified as some part […]

Vibration Monitoring

While all machinery vibrates, monitoring vibration is vital to detecting machine damage in a timely manner to prevent costly break-downs. Unexpected equipment failures can be expensive and potentially catastrophic, resulting in unplanned production downtime, costly replacement of parts and safety and environmental concerns.  Vibration monitoring transmitters and sensors use accelerometers to measure changes in amplitude, […]


A motor is used to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy to power a range of processes from simple functions like powering a fan to industrial operations such as pumps, conveyors or agitators. Motors differ according to their power type (AC or DC) and their method of generating rotation. AC motors are used to drive […]

Pump Troubleshooting

  Industrial pumps are designed specifically for use in harsh or heavy-duty applications. They move a range of material types, including water, wastewater, chemicals, oil, sludges, slurries and food. If correctly installed, they should operate for many years without issue. However as with any mechanical or electrical equipment, regular maintenance is the best defense against […]


Measuring devices are critical equipment in your process and plant. Correct measurements are essential in ensuring the quality of your product. Therefore, it is vital that these devices are regularly calibrated to ensure they are operating as they should. Calibration involves checking the measures taken by a device and comparing these against a traceable reference […]
