Recently, one of the most effective methods of condition monitoring is acoustic emission monitoring. Its potential with minimum tool and staff costs can not only detect and record emerging defects, but also classify them according to hazard level. The ability of acoustic emission method to register the slightest structural failure of the material can monitor not only test subjects state but also objects in operation without changing their operation schedule.
The experience of acoustic emission monitoring of various objects using the multichannel acoustic-emission systems, as well as experience of developing information-measuring systems allowed to develop and successfully implement the system COMPACS® for acoustic emission monitoring.
The system provides reliable recording of signals in a high level of industrial noise, allows integrally evaluate state of objects, provides to localize sources of acoustic emission - areas of origin and/or growth of defects. Built-in calibration system provides functional test of ducting system, sensors truth and localization system setting.
