Rent the Raytech TR-SPY Mark III for Precision Laboratory Measurements

by Protec Tech Team January 23, 2018

Raytech TR-SPY Mark III Three Phase TTR (Transformer Turns Ratio)Transformers are simple devices in concept, with two coils of insulated wire wound in close proximity on an iron core (windings). One wire (primary) is connected to a power source, such as the utility or a generator. The other wire (secondary) provides power, “transformed” in some way, to the load. Energy transfer from one wire to the other is through magnetic induction.

Detect Vibration in Rotating Machinery with a Fluke 810 Tester Rental

by Protec Tech Team January 08, 2018

Vibration in rotating machinery is simply the back and forth movement or oscillation of a machine and components, such as drive motors, driven devices (pumps, compressors, etc.), and the bearings, shafts, gears, belts and other elements that make up mechanical systems. Vibration itself is not the problem, but excess vibration is a symptom of internal issues, such as bearing failures, imbalance, misalignment and looseness that shorten equipment lifespan.
