Ultrasound Services And Technology

Brady Infrared uses Ultrasound technology to complement their infrared services. It can be used to locate gas/air leaks, blowing steam traps, electrical emissions and mechanical faults. It is cost effective and will detect problems missed by infrared thermography alone.

Electrical Inspections Using Ultrasound Technology

Electrical discharges in the form of corona, tracking, and arcing can be located quickly with ultrasound scanners. The signal is heard as a frying or buzzing sound in the headset and represents potential series problems in switchgear above 1000 volts. In most cases, these problems will not produce a thermal anomaly, and therefore go undetected using infrared only. Brady Infrared has helped many clients avoid catastrophic electrical failures through ultrasound. If you have med- to high-voltage switchgear at your facility, ultrasound technology is for you.

Mechanical Systems And Ultrasound Scans

Ultrasound scanner detects the earliest stage of bearing failure long before it is detected by traditional heat and vibration methods. Brady Infrared is familiar with bearing trending, condition assessment and lubrication techniques on a wide variety of bearings. Avoid over-lubrication and premature failure of bearings and motor windings.

Steam Trap Inspections With Ultrasound

It has been recognized that the most reliable method to inspect steam traps is using both infrared and ultrasound technology. By hearing the functions of a working steam trap blow-by, machine gunning, over-sized traps or line blockage are all easily detected. Brady Infrared has performed many steam trap inspections for hospitals, paper manufacturing and the citrus industry. (Download PDF Brochure) Steam Trap Inspections.

As any gas (air, medical gases.) passes through a leak orifice, it generates turbulence detectable by ultrasound equipment and heard as a rushing sound. Brady Infrared has located leaks on oxygen system leaks, fire fighting carbon monoxide systems, and a variety of other medical and manufacturing gases around fittings, welds and internal seats on valves.

After completing our work, we will provide you an elaborate report in electronic format and a hard copy that will include the following items:

  • Written summary of the inspection
  • Complete inventory list of equipment inspected
  • Color thermograms of problems detected
  • Reports are offered as hard-copies that are color laser printed and professional bound
  • We also offer digital copies in PDF format burned to CD’s or e-mailed directly to you
