DETECT EQUIPMENT FAILURES EARLYCondition Monitoring

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 and air) to monitor conditions in machines, we can measure equipment health, performance, integrity and strength to schedule timely corrective action.

MONITOR THE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR KEY ASSETSCondition Monitoring Tools

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

Vibration Analysis

Vibration Analysis detects early problems in rotating machinery, such as gearboxes, motors and diesel engines.

Oil Analysis

Reduce maintenance costs and keep on top of your machines condition using PCMS' Managed Oil Analysis service

Laser Alignment

Laser Alignment on assets in both new & old installations ensure the most accurate shaft alignment.

Remote Data Analysis

Get the benefits of Condition Based Maintenance directly to your facility or fleet regardless of size or location.

Thermography

Thermography gives an excellent indication of any impending faults using a quantifiable indication of temperature.

Ultrasonic Inspections

Air is not free. Finding and Fixing Leaks is Saving Money! We can undertake an Ultrasonic Leak Detection Survey

ADD VALUE TO YOUR ORGANISATIONThe benefits of Condition Monitoring

  • Maximise machine productivity
  • Extend bearing service life
  • Detect potential equipment failures at an early stage
  • Schedule repairs and services during non-peak times
  • Eliminate production loss costs caused by downtime
  • Increase business profitability

BE MORE COMPETITIVE, EFFICIENT AND COST-EFFECTIVEImplementing Condition Monitoring

  • The first phase for implementing condition monitoring is to identify your critical assets by conducting an initial site survey. Our reliability experts will discuss your maintenance requirements, identify your valuable assets and pinpoint maintenance resources to where they are needed most.
  • The second phase is an initial set up. We will set up condition monitoring equipment, create a central and local database, assign local champions, provide full training and define the overall process.
  • The third phase is 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.
  • The fourth phase is 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.
