Dielectric testing services are an important measure to improve the quality and control of insulating conductors and electronic parts. There are a number of dielectric testing techniques and services to choose from. Performing the appropriate measurement will ensure accurate results

Coaxial Probe – When testing for the permittivity of a material, coaxial probe is the proper technique. This is done by pressing a metallic probe against the material or soaked in a liquid solution to gauge reflection coefficient that verifies the permittivity. This simple approach allows the user to gather data across a broad range of frequencies.

Transmission Line – This method involves putting a sample on a waveguide. Next, assess intricate scattering parameters using a VNA analyzer. It applies both reflection and transmission to collect measurements with greater sensitivity than the coaxial approach.

Free Space – Free space can test electricity over a diverse range of frequencies. This is performed by placing large, flat samples of materials under extreme heat and in a hostile setting for a dielectric testing. This method allows you to get reflection and transmission coefficients without any contact. Moreover, it enables you to evaluate both electrical and magnetic properties of the material.

Resonant Cavity – This technique gathers measurements with high accuracy and high-temperature support. It enables you to get accurate data with dielectric loss materials. The method applies the concept of a resonant frequency shift of a tuned cavity when a loss material acts as a resonator.

Parallel Plate - In this method, the tester needs to sandwich the dielectric item between two electrodes to create a capacitor. Then, using an LCR meter or impedance analyzer measurements are collected along with a dielectric test fixture. This is the preferred dielectric technique for testing low frequency materials.

Planar Transmission Line - This method uses a microstrip line to test materials in RF and microwave components. It is appropriate for industrial purposes due to its compact feature. In this testing approach, dielectric measurements are inferred from a shift in permittivity using appropriate expressions.

Quality Dielectric Testing and Inspection of Aerial Lift Gears

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 05, 2019

Annual Dielectric Testing and Inspection is an important safety measure to ensure aerial devices are working in perfect condition and operating safely. These devices are highly complex and threatens severe operator injury and avoidable repair expenses when electric and mechanical issues go undetected an unaddressed. The yearly gear inspection and evaluation will mitigate these threats.

ETS Inc. specializes in dielectric testing and inspection services for aerial lift trucks and digger derricks. Commercial aerial lift trucks and digger derricks are governed by OSHA and ANSI protocols. One primary inspection focus area is the insulation status of the apparatus. Dielectric testing validates the contraption's electrical strength and voltage. This is done through application of voltage across the insulation material of the gear while metering the resultant leakage current.

It not a matter of IF you need dielectric testing services but WHEN you will need them. Choose your testing service provider with the proven record and years of experience to protect your staff, your equipment, and your reputation. We are certified OSHA and ANSI service providers. We guarantee a quality inspection and will provide you a comprehensive evaluation of your equipment.

Dielectric Testing Service Must Be Safe and Accurately Done

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 25, 2018

Are your aerial lift trucks and digger derricks due for their annual dielectric testing and inspection? ETS, Inc. is at your service. Always choose a fully licensed company to perform dielectric testing. The procedure can be hazardous and electrical faults are possible when the equipment tested has internal damage.

Dielectric testing services are important for early detection of latent defects, particularly in the internal systems of the equipment. This test must be done properly to get the accurate condition and status of the lift trucks and diggers and for proper management and repairs can be performed immediately to prevent further deterioration of this expensive heavy equipment. More importantly, when annual testing has been put off or taken for granted, those operating this machinery are at risk.

For dielectric testing and inspection it is imperative to hire experts that will carefully carry out these procedures. It is necessary that they have the skills, experience and tools so safety is secured during and after testing and repair. Contact ETS, Inc. for scrupulous and safe dielectric testing of your equipment.

Dielectric Testing and Inspections Secure The Condition of Your Equipment

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 20, 2018

Overtime, Aerial Lift Trucks and Digger Derricks become susceptible to defects that cause current overloads. Any equipment can get worn out when it is regularly in-service. This equipment involves complex systems which means repairs can be costly when they break down. To prevent this, dielectric testing and inspections are highly recommended to keep these units in top condition at all times.

Dielectric testing services are performed to detect damage in the insulation or other internal defects within the system before they become worse. The proper actions can be taken to repair issues at the earliest stage. This can prevent further deterioration of the equipment. Doing these inspections are vital to secure the safety of the technicians during operation. Damage in the equipment can cause electrical faults that can endanger those standing close to this equipment.

ETS, Inc. can perform reliable dielectric testing services to ensure that aerial lifts and digger derricks are conditioned prior to field deployment. Fully-equipped with tools and years of experience, we can guarantee the accurate testing and proper repair of the equipment. Contact us today for dielectric testing and inspection services.

Dielectric Testing of Digger Derricks Secures the Safety of Operators

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 09, 2018

Digger derricks are used for a kinds of tasks in the construction of utility lines. This includes lifting, digging holes, lifting linemen for overhead line maintenance and more. These derricks must be regularly maintained at all times so they can be readily utilized, especially during emergencies. For that matter, dielectric testing and inspection measures are integral to ensure these devices are reliable in critical situations.

Dielectric testing in Pittsfield, MA must be conducted by trained personnel. This is crucial because digger derricks have complex systems and the accuracy of the testing is vital to find any and all hidden issues. This gear is an expensive asset, which means costly repairs when minor hitches are allowed to escalate. High insulation testing is one of the primary areas that needs to be tested regularly in order to secure the safety of those who operate them.

If you are looking for experts in dielectric testing services with strict compliance to ANSI requirements, contact ETS, Inc.. We are fully-equipped to handle the job competitively.

Reputable Dielectric Testing and Inspection Services

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, June 14, 2018

Incidents and overloads can happen in any aerial device. Although they are engineered with sufficient safety settings, in-service issues can develop from continuous use. These are extremely complex devices and repairs can be challenging and costly. Early detection of system issues which could be developing can mitigate more complicated, time-consuming and costly issues.

Annual Dielectric Testing and Inspections for Aerial Lift Trucks and Digger Derricks are required by OSHA and ANSI to ensure they are operating in optimal condition. These vital inspections are performed in order to detect any issues in insulation. This way repairs can be made as soon as possible to mitigate further complications before they cause injuries or downtime. Dielectric testing confirms the electrical strength or electrical voltage of various apparatus. Many tests are conducted by applying a voltage across the "insulator" portion of the apparatus while measuring the resultant leakage current.

ETS, Inc. offers dielectric testing services of aerial devices ensures they function as intended prior to dispatch. Our team is fully-equipped with over 35 years of experience in this line of expertise and exceeds all OSHA and ANSI requirements. We also cater wheeled cranes up to 150 tons, steam cleaning, telescopic, articulated and combination inspections.
