Acoustic Emissions Monitoring
The Kittiwake Group was recently acquired by Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies.
Holroyd specialise in Acoustic Emissions Sensors and Condition Monitoring Systems for harsh industrial and marine environments. We employ the advantages of AE technology so that vibration analysis can be easily and quickly applied by maintenance staff on the factory floor!
Vibration monitoring can be classified in three categories, Broad band vibration (ISO 10816), Vibration analysis in the frequency domain (VA) and Acoustic Emissions (AE - ISO 22096). If you are a user of VA and want easy installation, rapid results and no complicated training then Acoustic Emissions is the technology for you.
Kittiwake Holroyd are a part of the Kittiwake Group of companies; leaders in condition monitoring equipment for industrial and marine applications. Our products are designed to provide warning of potential distress or fault condition at the earliest opportunity. Often this is achieved before damage becomes irreversible, maximising the life of your asset.

Supported by a global network, we offer a complete range of sensors for machinery monitoring covering Vibration, Ferrography, Used Oil & Grease Analysis, Leak Detection, Exhaust Emissions and Sampling Systems. Reliable detection of fault conditions at the earliest opportunity.
- > 2,500 AE systems supplied worldwide over 20 years
- > 30,000 Holroyd AE sensors used in industrial applications
- Typical customers monitor 50 - 100 machines per installation
- Pinpoint damage from cracking, friction, corrosion, shock
- Aerospace derived - inherently robust and reliable
“The goal is early fault detection before failure is inevitable. AE technology fits classically in to this requirement and is further enhanced by the range of oil analysis and ferrography products also available from Kittiwake."
