Ultrasound technology for condition monitoring and energy efficiency


Martec is the sole distributor of SDT Ultrasound Systems in Sub-Saharan Africa. SDT Ultrasonic detectors are the most versatile tools for reliability engineers, maintenance managers and energy efficiency practitioners.

SDT Ultrasound Systems detect, measure, capture and analyse high frequency sound signals generated by partial discharge, turbulence and friction common in electrical and mechanical plant at the earliest stages of a defect. These ultrasound signals can be heard audibly through the headphones as the detector makes it possible to “compare” sounds quickly. Training allows the operator to determine if the sounds require intervention and at what stage a fault may occur.
