About Us

CTRL Systems designs and delivers the
best ultrasound detectors in the world, but
we’re more than just an innovative tool
manufacturer. We are the ultrasound
experts, and we want to help your team
build and sustain a world-class ultrasound
program, specific to your organization’s
needs.

Condition Based Maintenance (CBM)

Monitor critical bearings and gearboxes for lubrication problems to prevent excessive wear.

Leak Detection / Energy Savings

Easily detect leaks of any type of gas, vacuum leaks, steam leaks, and internal leaks through valves and steam traps.

Electrical Inspection

Quickly monitor your electrical panels without opening the panels to determine if any partial discharge is present.

Acoustic Ultrasound in Manufacturing

Every industry can benefit from the diverse applications afforded by CTRL Ultrasound Technology and Programs. Each step along the production process is vital to maintaining up-time and a profitable output. Our acoustic ultrasound technology enables users to perform essential maintenance checks without disrupting a day’s workflow, saving precious time and helping prevent catastrophic breakdowns.

The UL101 product line has been used by our manufacturing customers for both maintenance checks and quality control. Our clients have been able to save valuable uptime, as the UL101 acoustic ultrasound listening devices can be used during production to find any air, electrical, and hydraulic leaks in the facility, and can even be used to locate and diagnose bearing and vibration problems. Likewise, the UL101 can also be used to detect leaks during quality control, with one production plant being able to reduce their leak detection testing from 15 minutes to 2 minutes.

Departments & Systems That Benefit From Ultrasound

CTRL Systems Inc

Case Study: Condition Based Maintenance

CTRL worked with a major corrugator to integrate an ultrasound program to monitor critical roller bearings and gearboxes. We teamed with the corporate maintenance and operations teams to modify standard maintenance practices, develop a manual, train all sites, and integrate the procedures to the CMMS.

  • Pilot site discovered a critical gearbox with a bad bearing with the first use, preventing catastrophic production shutdown
  • Improved corrugator rolls’ asset life – 1 ½ years to 3 years
  • Reduced critical asset catastrophic failure – “We had 1 bearing failure in the first 7 years of the program…”

CTRL Systems Inc

Case Study: Leak Detection

CTRL works with large, multi-location organizations as well as small, single site companies. A die company in Chicago was operating a 40hp and a 60 hp compressor, which were constantly running due to leaks in the system.

CTRL set up a continuing monitoring system and trained the maintenance team for compressed air leak detection. With 80% of the repairs completed in the first 2 weeks, the system pressures could be adjusted down.
