Indoor air quality and HVAC

Indoor air quality and HVAC

Problems faced

Indoor air quality is critical to health care facilities. Monitoring negative and positive air pressure in rooms keeps patients and workers safe from harmful bacteria. Maintaining required air flow pressure in operating or observation rooms can be difficult without the proper tools.

How we solve that problem

The Fluke 922 helps technicians confirm negative pressure in observation rooms or positive pressure in operating rooms in order to meet regulation standards. The Fluke 985 air particle counter measures particle count in a room so that you can ensure that bacteria, allergens, or other contaminants are at acceptable levels.

Problems faced

Compressed medical gases and air systems supply critical, life-saving support to patients throughout healthcare facilities. Leaks in these systems can cause serious health issues for both patients and workers.

How we solve that problem

The Fluke ii900 Acoustic Imager pinpoints air, gas, and vacuum leaks from a safe distance, quickly and effectively. Compressed air leak sounds are displayed on a handheld screen where they can be captured and shared for speedy fixes to ensure these critical systems remain running at optimal levels.

Electrical system testing

Electrical system testing

Problems faced

Effective and efficient facility systems and electrical components are critical to keeping life-saving medical equipment running optimally. Having the proper tools to troubleshoot and perform electrical testing can make all the difference.

How we solve that problem

The 1664 FC Installation Multifunction Tester and 1587 FC Insulation Multimeter identify and diagnose electrical and potential energy problems. The 1664 FC will diagnose and validate that the electrical systems are installed correctly. The 1587 FC is a front-line insulation tester for troubleshooting and performing preventive maintenance on HVAC systems.

Remote monitoring and tool connectivity

Remote monitoring and tool connectivity

Problems faced

Whether you are shorthanded, practicing social distancing, or practicing safe distancing from moving equipment and arc flash zones, the right tools can make all the difference.

How we solve that problem

Fluke Connect™ tools and software work together to make measurement data more accessible. Teams can take measurements from more than 20 meters away; set up reliable, traceable asset histories; and view data from anywhere at any time

Problems faced

Power quality can impact the cleanliness and stability of critical medical equipment. Diagnosing power quality problems can be time consuming without the right tools.

How we solve that problem

Fluke Three-Phase Power Quality Loggers provide long-term analyses and perform power quality surveys on critical equipment.

Vibration testing and preventive maintenance

Vibration testing and preventive maintenance

Problems faced

Premature equipment failure may cause unexpected downtime leading to a loss in production. Valuable time is wasted chasing symptoms of the problem– bearings, seals, etc. rather than diagnosing the root cause of the problem– misalignment, imbalance, or looseness.

How we solve that problem

The Fluke 805 FC Vibration Meter and 3561 FC Vibration Sensor are condition monitoring tools that show potential problems in rotating machines stemming from misalignment, imbalance or looseness. When these tools indicate a change in machine health, call in the Fluke 810 to diagnose the specific faults, severity levels, and provide recommendations. If the root cause is imbalance, then use the Fluke 830 to quickly correct the problem.
