COR Evaluation

COR Evaluation 2018-12-14T09:26:45+00:00
When it comes to assessing the condition of your water, sewer, and irrigation systems, we know one size doesn’t fit all. Unlike simple statistical models based solely on age, RH2’s COR Evaluation process provides an accurate picture of the true condition of every critical hard asset in your system. Inefficient pumps and motors increase energy bills and latent wear can lead to expensive repairs or replacement at inopportune times. Our cost-effective analyses will help you reduce your overall power and maintenance costs and proactively address problems before they cripple the entire system.
The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.
Bill Gates
Modern technology has become a total phenomenon for civilization, the defining force of a new social order in which efficiency is no longer an option but a necessity imposed on all human activity.
Jacques Ellul
With the information gathered during the COR Evaluation process, RH2 can:
  • Assess the condition of your equipment without any disassembly
  • Identify catastrophic failures before they occur
  • Recommend targeted improvements to increase your system's efficiency
  • Reduce annual energy costs

RH2's COR Evaluation Equipment and Results

We employ a variety of tools to test pumps, motors, and other pumping infrastructure. Here is a quick view of some of the equipment.
Vibration Data Collector

Vibration Data Collector

Vibration Data Collector

  • Used for vibration testing
  • Pinpoints specific pumps and motors whose vibration is most damaging
Power Quality Analyzer

Power Quality Analyzer

Power Quality Analyzer

  • Provides surge current and voltage sags
  • Used for electrical testing on motors
  • RH2's test equipment monitors a wide range of characteristics for each phase of the incoming power to determine quality and quantity of power reaching the motor
Motor Winding

Motor Winding

Motor Winding

  • Insulation Testing
  • Measures resistance of coils and windings
  • Emulates turn-to-turn insulation degradation
Pump Curve

Pump Curve

Hydraulic Modeling

  • Field data is used to recreate existing pump curves
  • Pump curves are imported into the hydraulic model to analyze the water system with each pump's actual pumping capabilities
Thermal Imager

Thermal Imager

Thermal Imaging

  • Identifies areas of excessive heat generation
  • Aids in the detailed analysis of other COR Evaluation testing methods
