Thermal Imaging (TI)


TI isn't the answer...it just raises a lot of good questions

Thermal imaging is becoming a valuable tool in not just disaster prevention, but in diagnosis and even in production planning as well. Obviously, the first concern is possible damage and dangerous fire conditions that thermal imaging can uncover, but there is more to thermal imaging, much more.

Periodic imaging sessions provide a baseline of information that can be used to evaluate components and schedule maintenance help determine longevity and wear. As changes are noticed over time they can and will determine how long it will be until specific parts reach the point where they need to be replaced. This can avoid the chaos of systems going down, production halts and, depending on the situation, permanent damage.

As with many high tech evaluation tools, the skill of the operator has become increasingly vital in achieving clear and documentable results. Longo technicians have both classroom and on-the- job experience to correctly determine the hundreds of subtleties and color shifts.

In addition to performing sound, accurate and documentable imaging, Longo technicians also have the know-how to offer preliminary recommendations and suggestions depending on the fault or possible failures that are found. A follow-up by our technician after repairs is an excellent precaution against out-of-the-box component failures. It can also determine any stress occurring when new components are introduced into an existing system. Safe, secure and predictable equipment is the keystone to any profitable facility. Longo can help make that happen. Add to this vibration and oil analysis for a complete understanding of where your equipment stands today and where it is headed tomorrow.

Call us now at 973-537-0400 ext: 3 and let us show you how to avoid dangerous situations, costly oversights and how long and how hard you can push your equipment Longo, your complete resource for energy control and maintenance.




Vacuum Pressure Impregnation With Temperflex


VPI or Vacuum Pressure Impregnation provides windings with protection against outside contamination and the internal stresses from torque and vibration. The epoxy coating, Temperflex®, is a proprietary epoxy formula designed to meet Longo's engineering specifications. It is neither too brittle nor too soft, but just the right amount of flexibility to allow the winding to stay intact under shock loading (startup) while also rigid enough to provide full protection.

The pressurization forces the epoxy into even the smallest void eliminating the possibility of corona or any moisture or dirt entering the windings which can deteriorate the winding.

The process is a combination of vacuum and pressure with strict controls over time and pressures. After the motor has been rewound with "green" or untreated coils, it is heated and placed into the VPI tank. A dry vacuum cycle of prescribed length is introduced, typically 1-2mm (Hg). The windings are then submerged in the solventless Temperflex® epoxy resin.

The time the vacuum is held is determined by the size of the stator, voltage, and core parameters. The tank is then pressurized up to 90 psi for a period of time again determined by motor parameters. The result is the epoxy not merely coats the windings, but it is drawn in and pushed into all the voids encasing the windings in a complete protective coating.

The benefits of the Longo Temperflex® system are:

  • Increase in the voltage breakdown level (even under water) NEMA MG1-20.18.1
  • Proven water submergence duty system
  • Increased resistance to winding surges and severe torque generated on startup
  • Windings remain cooler; efficiency improves
  • Improved resistance to moisture, dirt and chemicals




Vibration Information Management


Make sure your rotating equipment isn't on shaky ground!

Vibration is a by-product of an ailing machine or operating condition and, if left unchecked can result in wasted energy, the need for major repairs, or even worse, catastrophic breakdowns. Fortunately Longo's program not only detects these critical problem areas, but can spot potential problems while they can still be corrected during routine maintenance...

Some common sources of vibration:

  • Unbalance
  • Misalignment
  • Eccentricity
  • Bent shaft
  • Shaft cracks
  • Mechanical looseness
  • Journal bearing faults
  • Rotor rub
  • Cavitation
  • Electrical motor problems
  • Gear faults
  • Rolling element bearing faults

Since Longo data is quantitative it lends itself to computer trending and forecasting so you get a clear picture of the condition your equipment is in today...and where it is headed tomorrow.

Vibration analysis is a non-destructive test that does not affect machine operation or interfere with production scheduling. In fact, testing requires the machinery to be operating.

Each report combines the expertise of our certified technicians and their sophisticated equipment along with real world data on the age, history and environment of the machinery.

When machines and their components are running right they work in harmony. If just one of these elements begins to wear or is damaged, it puts stress on the entire drive line. If repairs or replacements are not implemented, the other components can begin to fail as well. Frequent periodic vibration analysis of your equipment exposes potential faults and trends that will allow you plan timely repairs and replacements during regularly scheduled maintenance, avoiding catastrophic breakdowns.

Simply put the benefits of VIM are:

  • Predictive maintenance
  • Reduced downtime for repairs
  • Prevent damage and expensive repairs
  • Reduce energy costs
  • Safety

Variable Frequency Drives

Save time, money, and your nerves with Longo's "line to load" capability. Unlike traditional procedures where electricians install the VFD's and then control specialists sort out the electricians' work, Longo does it all. Longo has the experience and resources to understand the relationships involved between voltage, power, torque and all the other critical variables. From there we choose the correct installation site and procedure to ensure a minimum of interference.

Longo can provide the drives, softstarts and combination starters for low and medium voltage units for all applications. We also provide the vital expertise to ensure the installations meet your expectations of reliability and performance.

While reaping the benefits of VFD's appears straightforward, the installation does require attention to detail. Poorly designed applications or improper installations can quickly turn a very simple plan into a very expensive one.

Inverter Duty Motor Rewinds

Specify the Longo Engineered Inverter Duty Rewind (SURGE SHIELD ™) System for your inverter motors which are (or better be) used on all adjustable speed drive (ASD) applications. Modern solid state drives use pulse width modulation (PWM) to vary the voltage/frequency ratio. But PWM drives using IGBT (insulated gate bipolar transistor) switching generate a wave form spike up to 2000 volts which can damage the stator winding! Longo's exclusive SURGE SHIELD ™ winding system is backed-up by our 3 year warranty. This means that your inverter motor can run safely and reliably in the face of repetitive up to 20,000 per second voltage surges.
