Leak Detection and Condition Monitoring

Triple 5’s On Line Systems, Bench Top and Portable leak detecting equipment will help you locate problem areas in the early stages before they grow too large causing longer down times, higher repair costs and possible harm to employees.

Find the problem before it finds you!

The AMS-2 and AMS-3 Boiler Tube Leak Detection Systems are designed for steam leak detection in:

• Feedwater Heaters

• Recovery Boilers

• Power Boilers

Advanced technology is employed to locate leaks in all areas of the boiler including the furnace, waterwall, superheat, reheat, economizer, penthouse, and feedwater heaters.

Both systems interface to plant DCS through a serial link using a modbus, ethernet or simple ASCII format; 4-20mA outputs for each sensor optional.

The DL-2 and DL-3 Data Logging Spectrum Analyzers display trending plots such as steam flow, feedwater flow, furnace pressure, and ID fan speed.  Included are trending plots showing amplitude of the signal in dB versus time for 2,5 hours, 24 hours, 10 days, 30 days and 60 days.

Digital Filtering provides bandpass selection for each sensor through software settings. This adds flexibility to the system for tuning out interference from background noise.

A PC and modem can be used to remotely operate all functions of the AMS.

Martec - PRODUCTS - CableWISE

Knowing a cable system’s weaknesses enables owners, asset managers and reliability engineers to be proactive in finding and fixing problems before they cause outages. Applicable to all types – PE, XLPE, EPR, PILC and other power cables operating at all voltages - 5kV to 345kV including mixed services. A detailed report with findings and recommendations will be forwarded to the customer.


Martec - PRODUCTS - CableCURE

Independent testing has proved conclusively that CableCURE® fluid improves the performance of all solid-dielectric cables by at least 0.5% per day, with peak performance improvements approaching 350% within two years of treatment. If your cable fails dielectrically after CableCURE treatment, UtilX will refund all of your money for the treated segment or segments of cable that experience failure for up to 20 years after the date of service.


Martec - PRODUCTS - Demagnetisers

The cause of the magnetic fields can be traced to magnetic chucks and couplings, magnetic particle inspections, magnetic probes and mounts, welding and other sources of electrical currents such as static currents or lightning. Demagnetizing is a necessary preventive maintenance procedure for rotating machinery to remove unwanted magnetism and reduce the risk of shaft currents being generated from high residual magnetic fields.
