Conveyor maintenance must be efficient to avoid expensive, unplanned downtime. This is particularly important in industries like food and beverage production, logistics warehousing, automotive manufacturing, mining, and raw material handling.
The Fluke ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager with MecQ™ Mode provides a modern solution. It can detect potential problems in conveyor systems before they worsen. This allows maintenance teams to take proactive steps and maximize system performance.
Visual Detection with Quick and Easy Acoustic Imaging
Maintenance personnel can quickly and easily detect potential problems in conveyor systems. The Fluke ii910 with MecQ™ makes this process fast and straightforward.
By utilizing acoustic imaging technology, the ii910 captures and analyzes ultrasonic sound produced by mechanical components when deterioration occurs. This tool is safe and does not require contact. It enables users to quickly and precisely detect unusual sounds, even those beyond the range of human hearing.
How Does Acoustic Imaging Work?
The Fluke ii910 employs MecQ sub-modes, which go beyond the capabilities of traditional airborne ultrasonic tools. While compressed air leaks and partial discharge produce ultrasonic sound, mechanical components also emit such sound when they begin to deteriorate.
Unlike conventional tools limited to a single frequency, the ii910 with MecQ™ offers predefined and customizable frequency bands. Sub-modes allow users to filter and track dB-level data in specific frequency bands. This gives users the ability to analyze and determine the exact location of potential problems.Fluke's acoustic imaging technology uses an array of tiny microphones. These microphones are very sensitive and can detect both sonic and ultrasonic sound waves.
Using the ii910 with MecQ™
Deploy with Ease and Boost Efficiency
The Fluke ii910 is designed to be user-friendly, with an intuitive interface that encourages adoption by the entire maintenance team. It seamlessly integrates with existing leak and partial discharge detection tools, providing a convenient solution for visual detection. Maintenance teams can stay ahead of potential issues by efficiently scanning large areas of interest. This allows them to order spare parts or conveyor parts in a timely manner.
The ii910 helps users identify the exact cause of any issues. This optimizes energy efficiency by targeting unhealthy conveyor bearings that lead to more energy consumption. Taking proactive measures helps mitigate consequential damages, ultimately reducing maintenance costs.
Maximize Uptime and Ensure Team Safety
By utilizing the Fluke ii910 with MecQ™, maintenance professionals can minimize the risk of unplanned downtime on conveyor systems. Swift identification of potential bearing failures allows for timely maintenance and prevents costly system disruptions. Furthermore, the ii910 enables inspections without the need for close contact, eliminating hazardous situations and ensuring team safety.
Reduce Costs and Document Findings
Unplanned downtime can lead to significant financial losses. Proactive maintenance with the ii910 can help to avoid downtime. This can lead to potential cost savings of between $30,000 and $130,000 per hour, depending on the industry.Seeing sound with Fluke MecQ™ helps narrow the area of interest on large conveyor systems like this one.
The ii910 enables users to record their findings. They can do this by taking screenshots of important points and adding annotations and tags to the photos. This helps them to plan for any necessary follow-up actions and to assess the urgency of the situation.
