The Brandon and Clark Difference
In today’s “commoditized” competitive landscape it can be hard to see what makes one solutions provider different from another. It might be tempting to go with the lowest bidder, right? Even though on the surface it might appear “all are equal,” that is far from the truth. When it comes to repair, quality control, repair methodology, testing capabilities, materials used, experience and repair equipment all influence the repairs at hand. Beyond our fundamental differences also comes the value we can add to your industry, business or process.
Rotor Testing Development and Innovation
- RMFA and sRMFA Technology was developed by Brandon and Clark’s staff of Professional Electrical Engineers
- Many current methods of rotor testing lack the sensitivity to detect rotor bar defects beyond major issues such as a broken rotor bar.
- Measuring the magnetic field of a rotor when excited from an external source allows for the detection of a wide variety of rotor defects such as brazed connection degradation, cracked rotor bars, broken rotor bars, and casting defects.
- This method of testing provides advantages over many current testing techniques in testing sensitivity, recording, reporting, illustration of machine condition to the end user, and testing safety.
Services that Get to the Root Cause of Failures
- Motion Amplification – What you See Changes Everything. See the Problem, See the Solution. Motion Amplification is a service that utilizes patented technology to measure deflection, displacement, movement and vibration of equipment and structures not visible to the human eye. Utilizing a high-performance video streaming camera, in conjunction with one-of-a-kind software and processing algorithms, we are able to extract meaningful data that resolves problems.
- Useful to:
- Specify the source of reliability issues
- Prioritize maintenance
