Condition Monitoring Services

How we look after machinery is very similar to how we look after ourselves. Just like in the human body, machines give off lots of signs as their condition and performance deteriorates. We all become the subject of condition monitoring when we go to the doctor for a health check. The recording of blood pressure, weight, lung capacity etc are all designed to keep our bodies healthy by spotting any problems early.

Similarly, by using various process parameters (e.g. pressure, temperature, vibration, flow) and material samples (e.g. oil) to monitor conditions in machines, we can measure equipment health, performance, integrity and strength to schedule timely corrective action. In course this will help reduce the effect on the environment and prevent unnecessary costs from downtime and loss of earnings to replacing parts and components due to wear and tear.

Tools and Techniques

At PCMS Engineering, we have the expertise and resources on a global scale required to implement cost-effective condition monitoring programmes that help organisations of all sizes reduce downtime, increase machine productivity and eliminate repair costs caused by unexpected breakdowns.

The following techniques can be used solely or in combination as part of a condition based maintenance (CBM) strategy to monitor the performance of a machine or a component whilst in operation.

Generally, condition monitoring techniques are used on a variety of assets such as pumps, electric motors, internal combustion engines, gearboxes, fans, electrical control panels, compressed air and hydraulic systems etc.

Our Approach


Phase 1

Implementation of condition monitoring to identify your critical assets by conducting an initial site survey. We will discuss your requirements, identify your valuable assets and pinpoint resources.


Phase 2

We will complete the initial set up of the condition monitoring equipment, create a central and local database, assign local champions, provide full training and define the overall process.


Phase 3

Consolidation and base line set up. We will set up initial critical levels, define KPI’s, train engineers for analysis, reform critical levels to customer requirements and perform an immediate reliability benefit.


Phase 4

Ongoing monitoring. We will assign responsibility in operations and engineering, provide training and support in analysis to local champions, and develop and monitor a list of high risk assets.
