Technical Field Services
Armature Electric Ltd provides numerous Field Services. Our specialist technicians have the experience knowledge and tools to get the job done on site. We are available 24/7.
Removal and Reinstallation
If you need assistance removing a piece of equipment out we are there for you. We are experienced at moving large machinery out of the tightest spaces!
CO2 Cleaning (Dry Ice)
Dry Ice Blasting is an environmentally friendly and non-abrasive process. Dry ice, the solid form of carbon dioxide, is accelerated in a pressurized air stream and directed at a surface in order to clean it. Dry-ice blasting leaves no chemical residue as dry ice sublimates at room temperature. Therefore, all that remains after the process is the removed dirt. This is a great method for improving Insulation Resistance and Polarity Index (PI) on your machine without having to remove it.
Vibration Analysis (Condition Monitoring)
Excessive vibration will lead to premature wear and/or failure. Vibration Analysis is an excellent tool for condition monitoring & predictive maintenance. It is also utilised to detect a specific problem causing a vibration symptom. Different symptoms (Imbalance, Misalignment, Worn Bearings, Gear related problems etc) produce oscillations at different frequencies. If you having problems identifying the root cause of vibration, we can come to your site and help to determine the cause.
Laser Alignment and pinning of rotating equipment reduces coupling and bearing failures and reduces vibration levels. Laser alignment will detect vertical and horizontal misalignment, as well as shaft offset. It can be used on machines couples in either vertical or horizontal position. It is the most accurate way to align equipment within the required tolerance.
On Site Balancing
Our technicians can come to you and balance your equipment, saving you downtime and money from removal and reinstallation.
Rewinds / Rewedge
When a motor or generator is too large or confined to be removed from its location, Armature Electric can provide our rewind services on location. After stripping, cleaning, inspection and core loss testing, the unit will be rewound using a resin rich fully cured coil system that requires no baking.
Motor Circuit Analysis (Winding Analysis)
Utilizing our highly sophisticated PdMA predictive maintenance equipment, winding analysis is done off-line and / or online at your facility and can be used to troubleshoot if your windings are the cause of your failure or it can be used to establish a baseline and trend your insulation condition. For High Voltage machines we are pleased to be partnered with ABB with their Life Expectancy Analysis Program (LEAP), and advanced system designed to predict the remaining life of your insulation system.
