INSPECTION BASED ON HEAT FLUX MEASUREMENTS.

This technique permits to measure the heat transfer essential to improve energy efficiency in thermal processes.

Scope

An inspection based on the measurement of heat transfer allows to know how much heat passes through a known surface. This technique simplifies the characterization of thermal insulators avoiding the direct calculation of heat transfer. Heat losses become known easing the quantification and evaluation of any thermodynamic system.

INSPECTION BASED ON ULTRASOUND

The inspection based on ultrasound refers to a non-destructive method based on the propagation of ultrasound waves in the object or material tested. Ultrasound and thermography testing are complementary inspection techniques.

Scope

  • To detect electric arch, crown effect, and taking
  • To inspect heat and vapor tramps.
  • To detect leaks in pressure and void systems such as heat interchangers, condensers, distillation columns, and ovens.

INSPECTION BASED ON ULTRAVIOLET WAVELENGTH

This technique permits to determine the spots or equipments with electrical discharges that result from defective electrical and mechanical components. The data are collected from a far distance by using an ultraviolet sensing equipment capable of storing video and pictures.

Scope:

  • To analyze the ultraviolet radiation emitted from equipments under normal working conditions.
  • To detect the phenomena of partial discharges such as electric-arch.
  • To detect flaws in insulators and ionization phenomena generated by field distortions.
  • To assess and recommend with respect to the equipment operation.
