Analytical maintenance technology

  • Would it not be wonderful if you had a way to predict the future. Well we cannot warn against hurricanes but we can warn when machines are going to fail, why it will happen and estimate the time it will still run for.

Amt / Analytical Maintenance Technology,

History.

Pieter Du Plessis has more than 28 years of on site condition monitoring experience, starting with New Denmark Colliery (anglo coal division)near Standerton Mpumalanga and was later Head hunted for by Illovo sugar Kzn that became Tsb and is currently part of the RCL foods group of companies. Yet in 2016 started AMT / Analytical Maintenance Technology with his son Quinton who has been doing business in the services industry for more than 12 years. Having this wealth of experience and passion for service excellence as part of a family owned business. We also have an open door policy all the way to the top, so we are looking forward  to see you at the Head office in Pretoria North. References upon request.

We focus our attention on the South-African market, from Pretoria to Cape town and serve clients across South-Africa. We offer our services, across all towns South-Africa. We are used to the all areas and can work in mining, manufacturing and bottling, petro-chemical, automotive and electrical fields.

Case study.

At one of the sites there is a gearbox system that was running at a cost to client of Around R2 000 000, per year, spent on replacing gears and pinion shafts within the box, after a single alignment project the client has not spent a cent on that gearbox in 10 years so the estimated saving to client was R20 000 000 to date on that one machine.

We cover a wide range of condition monitoring services including…

  • Laser alignment of pulleys, shafts, belts etc.

When an object is rotated centrifugal forces are generated. When a shaft is off center this creates vibration and stress on crucial parts like bearings, this could create multiple problems.

For instance as the bearing starts wearing out it starts running hotter, up to the point where it can ignite gasses in the area and explode which could cost someone their life

It may also cause the shaft to wear away and break the shaft. This can cause down time and man hours lost, this in turn can cause the company to suffer losses which could result in job losses and bankruptcy.

  • Balancing of fans,rotors and turbines etc

When a fan or turbine is rotating at thousands of revolutions per minute and one of the blades has a chip, crack or bend or debris on it it will cause a vibration on the motor and structure. This could cause failure of bearings, blades, housings, structures and foundations.

 

  • Vibration analysis of motors, pumps and gearboxes etc.

Using the latest technology it is possible to use vibration frequencies to analyze and test machines long before any failure occurs. With this powerful tool combined with experience it is possible for us to change a frequency scale as seen here into readable data.

Much like a health check-up, two people entering the doctor’s office might look the same, but one gets a pain tablet and the other gets rushed to the ER. Doctors use vital signs  for health and so do we, one of them is called vibration.

  • Thermal imaging of pipes, wiring circuits and pumps etc.

When a wiring circuit has a fault on it, it will generally start heating up the components on that circuit as the amperage rises. Using a motor for example, the motor is running hotter and thus using more power, could fail sooner and could cause a fire. We use the latest infra red imaging technology to quick determine where the heat sources are on the system or circuit and can compile a report that is easy to read and a preventative action plan provided.

  • Oil analysis for motors, gearboxes, and transformers etc.

Oil and lubricants can show  very much about the state of a motor, gearbox or transformer.Tests include, but are not limited to particle count. Viscosity and chemical spectrum, soot contamination shows an ingress of dirt into the system.

What is condition monitoring.

Put in very simple terms. It is the discipline of monitoring the condition of various machines in a specific route,in specific factory on a regular basis. This is done to determine which machines has the most wear and tear. Why the wear and tear has occurred, and what can be done to prevent the same  situation in the future.

We have teams specializing in all areas of security,
Namely, alarms, gates, garage doors, automation thereof, intercoms, complex cell-phone intercoms (mircell), electric fencing, and access control, even alarm monitoring and security guarding.

More detail.

Alarms,
Our alarm teams specialize in all alarm systems and can do quick and efficient fault finding.
They work on wired and wireless systems. Making use of the latest in criminal detection technology, like outdoor passives with micro wave and sway recognition technology, or infra red beams.

Gates and burglar bars,

We have the best welders and designers in Gauteng; we can custom build any gate or window protection unit. They can also advise on the strongest manufacturing for the specifications of the clients design. In other words they can help the client get the strongest most beautiful gates and window protection units.

Garage doors,

The garage door is the biggest moving object in and around the house and in most cases it is heavy enough to crush a car’s roof and even kills a member of the family. Piece of mind is a must with a garage door. Especially if the door is held up by a motor. Our door team was trained not only by the manufacturers but also by technicians who have been specializing in garage doors for the past 20 years.

Automation of gates and garage doors,

Automating a garage door or a main entrance sounds like a decision of luxury, but in these trying financial times the criminals are getting even more desperate and dangerous. With most hi-jacking happening in driveways when the victim gets out to open the gate or has to stop. And let’s face it most hi-jackers are not the type of criminal to ask politely then back off, just take a moment to think of all the death associated with this aspect of criminal activity. Changing your time of entrance from +/- 1min to +/- 6seconds without having to get out of the safety of your car could save you or your family’s lives. With most of our gates providing the option to open the gate with courtesy lights that switch on for an adjustable amount of time whenever the gate is operated. We also do an assortment of boom gates to suit the site. The same applies for a garage doors, a person is still vendible behind a gate if a criminal is in position of a firearm, as they can force the victim to open the gate. Don’t take that risk it’s not worth it.

Intercoms,

Communicating between the main entrance & the house or business office means that it is possible to identify the person requesting access. This also gives an added safety of not having to answer face to face with the risk of firearm intimidation. We also offer the  ability to answer your home or complex intercom from your phone and operate up to 4 items like gates, booms and lights from your cell-phone.

Technology gives us the option between normal audio and combination of color video or black & white video with audio. This added feature means that it is possible to correctly identify the person and to make sure that he or she is who they claim they are.

Complex cell-phone intercoms (mircell),

With further advances in technology it has even become possible to communicate between the main entrance of a business or complex and a specific person pre identified via cell phone who has power of access example: A person arrives at the entrance of the complex and presses the unit number 5, the mircell calls Mr. Jones at number5, if there is no answer it will call Mrs. Jones if there still is no answer it will call Jenny their daughter, and any of them can open the gate from, where ever they are by just pressing a pre-set button (normally 5). Getting to an estate where the amount of units or distance for running cable makes it impossible to use a standard system, the only real option is to use a wireless system lie the mircell, anti-interference and anti-scrambling technology makes it the safest wireless system in South-Africa. . This unique mircell system can only be sold to registered certified installers like our intercom specialist and this gives added piece of mind knowing that the system is backed with after sale support.

Electric fencing,

Electric fencing is one of the most effective ways to keep unwanted intruders from gaining access to a specific property. Our electric fence specialist can easily erect anything from a five line wall mount fence to a 24 line game fence over any distance. Once an again all work is certified so after sale support is a priority.

Access control,

Access control through electronics means that within a business or office, certain people can access certain areas while others cannot. These systems when installed correctly. Can be used together with existing systems, as I time and attendance system. And can even be linked to bio-metric fingerprint readers. Our access control team is ready and able to help.

Cctv

Cctv gives the client the power to view any area of any property, from anywhere in the world and even record it with a watermark which makes it useful in a court of law. We have now even launched portable systems that can be mounted in trucks, fleets of cars or buses. We also specialize in video cameras that have a low lux input that means the camera does not need light to view and record, perfect for warehouses and any application. We do indoor and outdoor systems.

Alarm monitoring.

We also install monitoring systems using GSM technology, This allows you to monitor and arm your alarm system from anywhere in south africa. We also offer cctv streaming and offsite monitoring through an adsl Line.

We take pride in quality. And have set a new standard in the security industry. Our services now also available direct to the public.

If you want to buy an electric or electronic gate motor, and save some money in the process it is important to ask the right questions. Make sure the installer you are intending to use are accredited by the manufacturer or supplier. Here is a list of 10 questions to ask a technician about the proposed new installation:

  • Will the proposed motor be able to pull and push this gate easily?
  • How many times a day can I open and close the gate (know as duty cycle)?
  • What extra options do I have on this motor (for example, courtesy lights, safety beams, etc)?
  • Does this model have battery back-up? (still operating automatically when the power fails)?
  • How will a power disruption be indicated by the motor and how many times can I open the gate with power off, only using the battery?
  • Is there a warrantee on…

  • Is there a warrantee on the motor and the workmanship?
  • Are you accredited to install this motor to specification?
  • Is that the best motor I can get for… your budgeted amount…?
  • What is the service interval and will you contact me, or should I contact you?
  • How much does one remote cost( always take extra remotes, and store them in the safe),

 

 

A gate is the best way of keeping an intruder out of your house, or business. Gates are manufactured in different shapes (swing, sliding and folding) and sizes to suit the need. Motor prices differ according to the brand and the intended use specification. Automatic gates are utilized to make the use of the gate safer and easier. There are many compaies that install gate motors in pretoria and Gauteng. Gate automation gives the user the advantage of time and the safety of not having to get out and be exposed to criminals hiding around the entrance. Gate motors are manufactured by different companies; the top 4 are listed below (most common), and a brief overview of their products on offer.

Maintenance on automated systems are very important to the correct functioning thereof. Most users  only call a technician when the gate stops running but the truth is at that point the fault have already caused some type of damage to the components, this can be prevented by doing preventative maintenance check-up’s. As seen above there are mainly two types of gate motors electric that uses ac(alternating current like an appliance inside your house) and an electronic gate motor that uses dc(direct current from a battery or set of batteries much like a torch does) be aware that a dc motor still requires 220v ac to charge the internal battery/s.
