Sustaining Performance

Down time is never a good thing. After all, when production stops, money is lost. It can cost a company thousands of dollars for each hour the production line is down for repairs. Utilizing predictive services can help minimize lost production time and allow a company to plan for the inevitable.

Brady provides predictive services for every facility in every industry. Diagnosing and repairing equipment on your schedule saves the bottom line.

We offer the following predictive services:

Vibration Analysis

By using sophisticated route-based vibration data acquisition software and equipment, Brady can determine the health and condition of your rotating equipment. Through routine data collections, bearing degradation can be trended and failure predicted to minimize unscheduled down time. A full range of issues can be detected using vibration analysis, including:

  • Imbalance
  • Misalignment
  • Coupling problems
  • Structural instability
  • Gear wear
  • Design flaws

Laser Alignment

We provide precision laser alignment on coupled equipment including pumps, cooling towers, chillers, gearbox applications, direct drive fans, and compressors.

Laser alignment can also be performed on belt and chain-driven equipment. Benefits of laser alignment include reduced energy consumption, reduced maintenance costs, increased bearing and seal life, decreased coupling wear, more accurate than dial indicator alignments, and less downtime to perform versus dial indicator.

Acoustical Analysis

Acoustical analysis can be used to determine the source of obtrusive noise, the noise and room criterion ratings to meet condition specifications, and a variety of other auditory issues.

Ultrasonic Testing

Ultrasonic testing is a nondestructive, noninvasive way to determine the actual flow of any fluid through a section of pipe. Flow testing can be used to bring equipment back to design conditions, balance hydronic systems, and troubleshoot flow issues.
