If equipment uptime is a key objective to your current maintenance strategy, then an effective lubrication programme is critical in helping you achieve this.
A poor lubrication programme can have a major impact on the reliability of your machinery, ultimately leading to machine failure due to poor lubrication practices such as:
- Using the wrong type of lubricant
- Using too little/too much lubricant
- Lubricant contamination
PCMS Engineering has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
Temperature is one of the most fundamental indicators to possible faults, defects or inefficiencies with a component or machine. An abnormal temperature distribution (which is invisible to the eye) can indicate faults such as bearing failures, faulty electrical connections, overloaded circuits and much more.
Infrared thermography (IRT) is a widely accepted condition monitoring tool which measures temperature in real-time and at a safe distance by capturing heat-generated images. The data captured from these images can then be interpreted by maintenance personnel to ensure key assets operate at maximum efficiency.
IRT can be applied to electrical and mechanical machinery and allows hazardous and costly faults to be identified early before they become more serious and expensive to repair.
Vibration Control Ltd (VCL) are part of the PCMS Group of Businesses and specialise in providing condition monitoring techniques and reliability services to the nuclear industry.
VCL has developed a specific approach based on their expertise in a range of specialist technologies in the field of condition monitoring, such as stresswave analysis, ultrasonics, thermography, vibration and oil analysis.
As a result of continued success, VCL are now seeking to recruit a proactive, enthusiastic and experienced reliability engineer to be based at Sellafield Nuclear Plant, Seascale, Cumbria.
Putting their partnership into real-life practice, PCMS Engineering and Radicon knocked their teamwork up a gear by tackling the gruelling Total Warrior course in Leeds on Saturday 25th June.
While PCMS engineers might be more familiar with testing and assessing the condition of Radicon’s innovative, high quality gearbox systems, the team of 24 staff tested their own health, performance and strength during the brutal 12km assault course made up of 30 punishing obstacles.

For synchronised, time stamped information on your equipment’s condition with no interruption to your operational activities, let us introduce you to cost-effective wireless condition monitoring.
Our wireless monitoring systems consist of a range of sensors to monitor speed, temperature and vibration. A wireless system can provide operational information to web-based dashboard displays providing 24-7 access to asset data.#
PCMS Engineering are running a number of Vibration Analysis courses in July and October in both Level 1 and Level 2.
As an approved training organisation (ATO) for the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT), we are able to provide technical training in both theory and practical elements across a full scope of maintenance and reliability subjects.
Our Vibration Analysis courses will be held in Rotherham, South Yorkshires, and Liverpool, Merseyside. Our training can also be tailored to your requirements and can be held at your premises or a suitable location – contact us for more information.
Emerson’s CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyser takes vibration data collection and analysis to the next level with simultaneous four-channel plus phase data collection, and unique peak detection capabilities to identify bearing and gearbox degradation.
With both ATEX and IECEx certification, the CSI 2140 is safe to use in hazardous areas of the plant and allows you to move quickly along your route to safer locations. And now the CSI 2140 is the only analyser available on the market today that is CSA certified for Class 2, Division 2, Groups F & G. You’ll be able to collect and analyse data safely in a wide range of dust-related industries.
For a limited time, PCMS Engineering is offering a number of initiatives towards a new CSI 2140.
