PPM Corona Probe - Offline Partial Discharge Tester
The Corona Probe is an off-line instrument to accurately pinpoint the source of partial discharge (PD) in a particular slot in generators and motors.
The Iris Power PPM-97 Corona Probe supplements on-line partial discharge measurements by more precisely locating the partial discharge to a particular slot and position, with the motor or generator winding energized by an external high voltage AC source.
This offline test provides a method of testing the quality of bonding between the ground wall insulation layers in the slot sections of new resin-rich and individually VPI’d coils/bars, and the adequacy of slot resin fill in global VPI windings.Download Brochure Visit Website
On Line/ Off Line Partial Discharge: IRIS TGA
The test enables predictive maintenance of generators resulting in increased reliability and extension of the service life. The technique, developed by IRIS POWER, was introduced over two decades ago and has since been applied to more than 6,000 windings of generators, and is the most popular method in the world to measure partial discharge (PD). The method is non-destructive and is recommended by the generator manufacturers and the industry standards, such a as IEEE Std.1434-2000Download Brochure Visit Website
ELCID: IRIS ELCID Evolution
Iris Power ELCID Evolution tester operates at only 4% of normal operating Flux, generated by its quickly installed excitation kit. Any imperfections in the core inter/laminar insulation produce fault currents which are detected by a chattock coil and analyzed by the Iris Power ELCID Evolution signal processing unit. Measurement results are digitally stored in the PC for analysis and report generation, and faults can be precisely located in the core. Future results can be compared to past results for trending analysis.
Stator Wedge Tightness: IRIS Stator Wedge Analyzer
The Iris Power SWATM instrument allows to easily and effectively assess the tightness of stator wedges in motors or generators. If the wedges are loose, this may allow stator coils or bars to vibrate in the slot, leading to insulation abrasion and a ground fault. Electronic measurement and storage enables easy and accurate trending of wedge tightness data from test to test.
Stator wedges are traditionally tested for tightness by tapping them with a hammer and listening to the sound produced. This method is slow and prone to inconsistency, the Electronic wedge tightness evaluation is faster, more accurate and provides more consistent results. The Iris Power SWA instrument can be used to test most types of generator and motor stator slot wedges, including those with ripple springsDownload Brochure Visit Website
Power Factor- Tip Up/ Tan- Delta: Double M4100
The M4100 is the industry standard for power apparatus and insulation testing. Its unique combination of test capabilities and artificial intelligence analysis software makes it the power industry’s most trusted Power Factor/Tan-Delta instrument. These instruments are used around the globe thanks to their comprehensive testing options, safety features and measurement accuracy.
Static Tests: Baker D65R
The D65R is specifically designed to diagnose faults in large electrical windings with lower impedance and higher capacitance. With the D65R Digital Winding Tester perform Resistance, HiPot and Surge tests, as well as digitize and store data for future uses.Download Brochure Visit Website
Dynamic Tests: Baker Explorer 4000
Baker- SKF’s dynamic motor test and monitoring instruments are built to conduct condition monitoring for motors and generators from a Motor Control Centre (MCC), or through a Baker EP1000 connection unit. The SKF Dynamic Motor Analyzer – EXP4000 is the latest generation of low-voltage, battery-operated instruments that test motors and generators in-service, or while they are in operation. The EXP4000 provides health and performance data on the motor, the motor's load, and incoming power to assess motor performance and suitability in context of the entire machine system it supports.Download Brochure Visit Website
Vibration Analysis: Vb6B
Built on the proven track record of the classic vbSeries portable vibration analyzers and balancers, the all-new vbSeries data collectors, analyzers, and balancers have been re-engineered from the ground up to offer leading-edge reliability, accuracy, and usability.Download Brochure Visit Website
Magnetic particle testing is one of the most widely utilized NDT methods since it is fast and relatively easy to apply and part surface preparation is not as critical as it is for some other methods. This method uses magnetic fields and small magnetic particles to detect flaws in components.
