The difference between CTRL and the typical CBM product provider is the fact that we work with our customers after sales and training to ensure the continued use and success of ultrasound.
Our innovative sound solutions are the result of the relationships we develop with clients to address specific applicational needs.
That every organization has the confidence to rely upon ultrasound condition based monitoring as an integral technology for key decisions in reliability and quality control.
To help organizations understand, integrate, and rely upon condition-based maintenance technology to make informed, critical business decisions.
There are 3 main producers of ultrasound including mechanical, electrical, and leaks – pressure, vacuum. So, you can imagine the number of applications for which there is potential use of the technology. However, we work with our partners and clients to identify the applications that are critical or can have the most impact on the bottom line.
We work with our clients to measure and sustain savings for years to come.
Multi-Tier Integration Approach
Our approach to helping organizations understand, integrate, and rely upon ultrasound depends upon the commitment of our clients. In many cases, we are working with local plants who have a particular need or directive to improve their maintenance program. So, we provide product and training options that best fit their needs and budget.
We also work with larger organizations in a contracted integration program. Step 1 is to establish one or more pilot sites to establish baselines and standards. The pilot site or sites can begin with compressed air/steam energy savings. They expand to using the technology for condition based maintenance and reliability in year 2. Also in year 2, we help the organization proliferate the standards established in the pilot sites’ energy savings program and focus on sustainability of ROI.
A third way we help companies is through innovative solutions. There have been several unique problems that have been brought to our attention for which we helped clients resolve. For example, CTRL designed a space hardened detector for NASA, which is currently being used on the International Space Station (learn more). We continue to work with our clients and identify new, or unique approaches to integration of ultrasound technology. Some of those innovations are or will soon be available as commercial off-the-shelf solutions for the benefit of others.
Built to Order
Our approach to innovation typically begins with beta-testing using our current sensors. After a period of time, we have enough data and experience from a singular application to develop new algorithms that can be embedded into our software or firmware, build new sensors, or develop new ways to monitor and communicate in real-time.
We can talk about your specific needs with an NDA in place if you would like to partner with us for an innovative solution.
