Adcole’s Asperity Removal Software enables organizations to remove dirt from radial and linear data, based on the definitions set up by the operator. The Asperity Removal software solution enables users to specify the maximum number of dirt spikes, minimum amplitude of potential dirt and angular width of potential dirt.
Asperity removal eliminates defined dirt spikes by averaging data points on either side of the dirt spike, and connecting the points. With the dirt removed, the refined error data can focus on the real variance from the nominal values. In addition, the software can:
- Enable asperity removal for just radial data or for just linear data
- Specify a unique span or length for the dirt in a linear scan
- Provide a “dirt check” for the radial data when dirt appears
