Integrated Test & Measurement (ITM), a leading provider of structural test and measurement engineering software, test and monitoring systems, and related services, announces the latest release of its software platform, iTestSystem. Specifically designed for use with National Instruments (NI) cDAQ hardware, the iTestSystem software suite enables test engineers to organize, acquire, view and analyze important engineering data.

This latest release contains a number of enhancements including support for additional data acquisition hardware along with advanced event triggering functionality.  These and other enhancements give engineers a tool to collect, analyze and trend data from sensors connected to their products and processes enabling them to predict failures, evaluate operating conditions and determine vibration levels.

iTestSystem v16 New Features & Enhancements:

-       Automated Data Collection / Trending

-       Expanded Data Acquisition Hardware Support

-       Automated Data Analysis

-       Enhanced Tools for Data Viewing & Analysis

-       New Data Management and Email Notification Services

iTestSystem Platform Manager, Chase Petzinger comments:

“Our newest release of iTestSystem software contains a number of customer-driven enhancements and new functionality across the board.  Of note is an advanced triggering feature in MultiDAQ (iTestSystem’s data acquisition application) that will help ensure comprehensive data collection.  As a key unattended testing component, MultiDAQ is configured to collect data at regular intervals.  Our newest release takes this a step further by triggering data capture when certain conditions are met and only during times when the system is active. This ensures that anomalies and other key events are captured and made available to the test engineer without wasting disk space.”

Boiler monitoring technology replaces maintenance guess-work with data-driven accuracy.

2016 09 19 070505Integrated Test & Measurement (ITM), a leading provider of structural test and measurement engineering software and services, introduces its Clinker Detection System.  Clinkers, some of which reach the size of a small car, are incombustible residue that forms inside black liquor recovery and coal-fired utility boilers. This build-up (fouling) has a significant impact on the efficient operation of the boiler system.

The ITM Clinker Detection System:

  • Determines where boiler fouling has occurred
  • Optimizes soot blower operation
  • Identifies damaging clinker impacts on the bed/floor
  • Shortens the duration of chill & blow events

The ITM Clinker Detection System identifies fouling problems and determines the effectiveness of boiler cleaning tools and processes such as sootblowers, sonic horns, pulse detonation cleaning events, and thermal shedding during chill and blow cleaning events.  The solution involves mapping and instrumenting the boiler floor with industrial sensors that measure the size and frequency of clinker deposits as they become dislodged impacting the floor.  At the same time the system identifies which sootblower caused the clinker to fall. Together this information pinpoints the clinker’s area of origin directing where clean-out should be concentrated.

ITM Founder & President, Tim Carlier, comments:

“Without hard data to pinpoint areas of build-up maintenance is flying blind as to when and where to run sootblowers.  The ITM Clinker Detection System in essence provides visibility into the boiler. And because up to 6% of the steam generated by a boiler is used for sootblowers, any decrease, by even a small percentage, will generate significant savings when factored out over the course of a year. In addition to saving money, optimizing sootblowing also carries with it a positive environmental effect as plants don’t have to burn as much fossil fuel to generate electricity since steam is being consumed more efficiently.”
