Measurement Instruments in Schools

When looking for potential customers for the REED product line, we often forget the schools and their students. Yet this market can be lucrative in the short term but especially long-term, because once these graduate students and start working they will need instruments for them or the company they start working with.

Using Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges for Measuring Drum Brakes

Maintaining the appropriate thickness of brake drums on your commercial vehicles not only keeps them performing optimally, but can help prevent serious consequences while driving, like shattering or failure to stop. To protect the safety of drivers, Ontario adopted a new standard for commercial transportation requiring brake drum thickness measurements be made and recorded.

Resolution vs Application

As technology evolves and improvements are made, we always want the latest releases and thermography is no exception to this. We ask for more resolution, a higher sensitivity, and more versatility. The question is, do we really need all this?

Steam Traps - The More You Know

What is a stream trap?

A steam trap is simply an automatic valve that permits condensate to pass while preventing steam from escaping a system. A steam trap also removes air and particulates that are not condensable from space normally occupied with steam. Did you know...

Vibration Analysis - Smooth Savings for Your Operations

Vibration Monitoring is the most common element of a holistic preventative maintenance concept called Condition Monitoring. Until fairly recently, common practice was for maintenance of many objects to be performed at regular intervals; that is, according to the calendar. Data over many decades has proven this approach to be unhelpful: equipment failure tends not to happen over time, but rather shortly after maintenance was performed.

Heat Stress Monitors, Help Athletes, Workers Keep Their Cool in Hot Environments

Summers can be brutally hot, and when high temperatures mix with high humidity, it slows the evaporation of sweat, inhibiting the body's ability to release heat quickly. Heat-related illnesses occur when the body's temperature control system becomes overloaded, potentially damaging vital organs. Heat-related illnesses can range from heat cramps to heat exhaustion to the most serious, heat stroke.

Infrared Temperature Sensing Q&A

What is an IR Thermometer and why would you use one?An infrared temperature sensor is a point-and-shoot device that provides a fast and accurate reading of the surface temperature of any visible object or target. When an object or target is:

  • so hot (typically above 1300°C) it will damage thermometers requiring contact to measure or damage the product itself.
  • in a physically inconvenient or hazardous location, or is itself hazardous material
  • one of many that you wish to rapidly measure the surface temperature of an IR thermometer is the right choice

Thermography, Meters and Scopes

Repairing and preserving modern electrical equipment requires up-to-the-minute tools for commercial and industrial plant maintenance programs. But when it comes to advanced technology, maintenance professionals have generally been faced with a frustrating compromise: Expensive price tags or bulky designs. Infrared Thermography or Thermal Imaging (IRT), meters and stroboscopes offer a solution to that aggravation.

Keep Being the Life of the Party: Sound Level Meters and Workplace Noise Protection

Noise is an extremely common workplace hazard. Some noises are intermittent, like the sound of a brake press; others are continuous, like a rumbling boiler. Exposure to excessive noise over a long period is likely to result in hearing loss. To reduce the risk of hearing loss reaching a point where impacts quality of life—such as when a person has trouble discerning one voice or communicate in a crowd or party—workplace noise levels can be measured with a Sound Level Meter (SLM).
