Condition monitoring is essential if you wish to develop an understanding of the health and efficiency of a particular machine or process. Moreover, if the machine or process involves the use of motors, gearboxes or other moving parts, of all parameters that might be monitored vibration is arguably the most useful.

Operated by the Environment Agency, the Thames Barrier is London’s main defence against flooding. It became operational in 1982 and protects parts of the city against abnormally high tides and tidal/storm surges. Understandably, the barrier needs to be maintained to ensure it can protect the capital when needed. Indeed, during its history about a third of its 400 plus closures have been necessary, the rest being for maintenance purposes.
