One Flight Up: Elevator Testing with the Pocket AE™

Posted


The Pocket AE™, our portable Acoustic Emission (AE) system, was recently used to examine the structural integrity of elevator drive shafts in Japan. Engineers used the handheld inspection instrument during weighted cab tests to determine the presence of structural cracks and deformities throughout the elevator’s drive shaft. The Pocket AE was chosen for this project due to its portability and functional testing capabilities. The system is ideal for restricting and hard to reach areas, like elevator shafts.

Loose Parts Monitoring System Performs Flawlessly

An acoustic measurement from the LPMS that indicates metal-to-metal impact. In nuclear power plants the Loose Parts Monitoring System (LPMS) “listens” for metal to metal impact in the reactor cooling system to prevent the dangerous escape of irradiated water in to the environment. While these events do not happen often, public and plant safety is a primary concern, potentially saving the [...]
