The value of Strobe Lights

In keeping with the focus of Reliable Manufacturing®, this week we are going to start with a tool that can be used to do a simple check on machinery to assess the asset.  The strobe light is a simple, inexpensive and easy to handle tool, a Strobe light, can be used for performing preliminary inspections on a variety of rotating machinery. These inspections are easy to conduct and do not take much time. The inspections will provide vital signs of possible failures of the machinery and their root causes. The strobe light can be used on mechanically coupled machines, belt driven machines, motor cooling fans, stopped yet vibrating machines, mechanical seal failures and much more. We have included a short clip from the Reliability Solutions App that shows how to use a strobelight.
