Overview

If your industry relies on machines, condition monitoring can help you catch failures early, reducing emergency stoppages that eat up profits and cut into production time. Organizations that use high-quality condition monitoring spend 46% less on maintenance costs and increase uptime by 30%.

The use of multiple condition monitoring inspection technologies in assessing the health of plant assets yields a collaborative view of equipment health while expanding covered failure modes. Today, route-based condition monitoring inspections are incorporating human observations, thermal imaging, vibration, and ultrasound. Permanent inline monitoring systems also offer thermal imaging, vibration, ultrasound, oil, and motor current monitoring.

Join us as we explore the failure modes of common equipment and identify inspection technologies utilized to detect equipment defects that lead to failure. The webinar utilizes illustrations of both route-based multi-technology inspections and permanent inline monitoring inspections. Additionally, examples of technology collaboration within an equipment type will be given. Learn how implementing a multi-technology condition monitoring program can help you bridge the gap to better data use, productivity, and cost efficiency.
