Preventive Maintenance - Further Industries

1. Emission Measurement

Industrial plants nowadays need to ensure they run efficiently and at the same time control the emission of environmental pollutants into the atmosphere. Flue gas analyzer help you here in terms of compliance with statutory emission-limit values, as well as monitoring and optimizing thermal manufacturing processes.

Measuring the exhaust gas is an excellent way to optimize fuel and air input. A flue gas analyzer will enable you to measure the concentrations of various gases to help achieve optimal combustion as analyzer will help measure emission various gas pollutants in the exhaust for environmental concerns.


Compliance Testing


Efficiency testing


Process monitoring



In most countries, operation of all types of industrial plants is subject to strict regulations governing exhaust gas emissions into the atmosphere.



ü  Verify that the components defined as pollutants do not exceed certain limit values in the flue gas

ü  Carry out a preliminary flue gas analysis before an official emissions reading



Flue gas analysis instruments are one of the items of equipment that are used daily by service engineers to achieve optimum tuning of engines.



ü  Tune the engine to the optimum operating parameters while complying with the limit value regulations in force

ü  Avoid downtimes over the long term


Gas turbines are subject to flue gas limit values which are to be adhered to during operation and regularly checked depending on the size of the system.


ü  Check the system's emission values for adherence to limit values and for the manufacturer's specifications

ü  Extreme accuracy for the work on LowNOx gas turbines


Emission measure on Industrial Boilers

Efficiency testing on ships

Combined heat and power plant


The statutory emissions limit values are getting stricter, especially for NOX. For this reason, emission values are determined on boilers and burners during commissioning, maintenance and for emissions measurements.


On ships, as little visible smoke should be produced as possible, and the soot content kept to a minimum. n shipbuilding, the smoke count also plays an important part.


The conditions for operating a CHP system are better now than ever before. For a combine heat and power system to be operated profitably, some basic standards must be guaranteed by the targeted use of suitable measurement technology.


ü  Assessing the cost-effectiveness of the system and the setting of the burner

ü  Ensuring that the system complies with the legally established maximum values for flue gas loss and emissions


ü  Test whether the smoke count of marine diesel engines does not exceed the prescribed limit values

ü  Prove the soot emission in the diesel exhaust to customers

ü  Monitoring emission limit values

ü  Controlling system efficiency

Testing of exhaust gas treatment systems


2. Quality Control Measurement Tools For Production

Production processes plays an important role in the quality of the product output in any production plant and can affect financial consequences if quality is not maintained. To maintain quality, measurement tools that we use is mainly Climate monitoring.


Climate Monitoring

Quality control



Cold chain compliance must be checked and verified for almost all temperature-sensitive goods.

ü  Use climate monitoring system

ü  Continuous documentation of storage temperatures




Thermal imagers ensure precise situation analyses, thus supporting process control and product quality assurance.

ü  Detect foreign bodies in production processes

ü  Discover anomalies in the heat distribution of components



3. Maintenance

Maintenance practices are usually: 

ü  Regular checks in electrical maintenance

ü  Support in preventive mechanical maintenance

ü  Quick, easy filling level checks

ü  Safe high-temperature measurement


Electrical and Mechanical Maintenance

Electrical measurement parameters



Commonly found problems in maintenance with Thermography are shown as hotspots in both electrical and mechanical systems. Hotspots may affect product’s lifespan and early detection will help minimize downtime and overall maintenance costs.


ü  Early detection of faulty components or connections

ü  Prevention of dangerous fire hazards and costly production downtimes

ü  To plan repairs in good time and prevent downtimes






Testing plants with the user-friendly electrical measuring instruments from Testo: innovative technology and easy handling ensure precise and reliable measurement of electrical parameters such as current, voltage or resistance.


ü  Multimeter

ü  Clamp meter

ü  Current tester

ü  Voltage tester



4. Research and Development

In R&D, professional measuring technology can be useful in many cases. Temperatures and temperature profiles of complex processes can be analyzed and documented simply and reliably using thermography and climate monitoring system. Thanks to indoor climate monitoring in measurement rooms, you avoid the smallest deviations before the start of series manufacturing.


Climate monitoring




In industry, the wrong ambient climate can damage sensitive materials and goods, and cause costs.



ü  Use our climate monitoring system

ü  Assure the correct climate in measurement rooms



In the field of research and development, thermal imagers are also used for the targeted analysis of temperature distribution, e. g. on circuit boards.


ü  Really fine geometric resolution

ü  Analysis of the heating and cooling behaviour by the help of video measurement


5. Energy Production

Preventing costly failures and malfunctions is extremely important in the field of energy generation and distribution. Thermal imagers enable you to detect and analyse thermal irregularities efficiently and safely. Optimise the security of supply and the safety of your system.


Power Generation and Distribution

Solar Plants



Avoiding the failure of power distribution systems is essential. Faulty connections on high voltage masts can be particularly critical.


ü     These transitions to high-voltage lines, which sometimes occur at great distances, can be clearly identified with a thermal imager that has a sufficiently large detector or a telephoto lens

ü     Obtain the necessary degree of detail to enable error-free analysis of the thermal image




Renewable energy is increasingly being used in energy generation.


ü     In-depth inspection of large photovoltaic plants is essential to be able to operate these systems with optimum efficiency and guarantee permanent energy distribution.

ü     Thermal imagers are able to detect thermal irregularities in these systems quickly and efficiently.
