Calibration and the maintenance of process site instrumentation is vital for a number of reasons, such as to ensure that production output is achieved within set quality parameters and to meet regulatory requirements. This guide from GE Measurements discusses collecting the data, calibration software, and the types of software available.
As the saying goes, ‘garbage in, garbage out’. This truism is every bit as applicable in thermography as it is in computer data mining. The difference is that the inaccurate data that leads a thermographer to a false-negative conclusion could result in a multimillion-dollar catastrophic failure of a company’s electrical distribution system. In fact, the implications to personnel safety, plant assets and production downtime make the results of transmissivity errors more like toxic waste ...
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) was established in 1896 and has become the world’s leading advocate of fire prevention. The influence of its 300 codes and standards are evident in buildings, products and practices throughout the world. NFPA codes are adopted through a broad consensus of experts, and have resulted in some of the world’s most referenced and respected codes. This white paper from IRISS explores NFPA 70, also known as the National Electric Code (NEC), which ...
With between 70 and 80 per cent of all hydraulic failures caused by contaminated oil, effective analysis is vital to ensuring the healthy functioning of machinery. Bosch Rexroth outlines its top 10 tips for maintaining oil quality.
In this white paper, Martin Robinson, a Level III thermographer and chief executive officer (CEO) of IRISS, discusses the history of infrared windows. He said: ‘As CEO and founder of IRISS, I am often asked how and why I designed our product line the way I did. As is common with such product development processes, there was no single epiphany that unveiled today’s design to me. Instead, I arrived at our best-in-class design through an evolution of enhancements, each improving on the ...
Electrical accidents, such as arc flashes, happen daily; however, there are ways companies and individuals can reduce the occurrence of these accidents and protect everybody concerned from the consequences. The NFPA regulation 70E provides a reference for facilities to meet the requirements of electrical workplace safety, while regulation 70B outlines the best practices for setting up and maintaining an electrical preventive maintenance programme.
