Partial Discharge Testing: Online And Offline Partial Discharge

Partial Discharge Testing: Online And Offline Partial Discharge

Partial discharges are small discharges that take place between two electrodes. These minor discharges primarily occur in a few select areas around the insulation. Unbalanced electrical stress may be the root cause of these partial discharges. Catastrophic failures could result from these undetected partial discharges.  There are techniques to detect these partial discharges before failure …

Survey on Steam Trap Inspection

Survey on Steam Trap Inspection

What is a Steam Trap? A Steam trap is specifically used to filter out condensate and non-condensable gases such as air without letting the steam escape. This component is part of a steam system normally used for factory operations that function on steam-heated processes and steam-oriented turbines present in power plants.  You may also like …
