A feeling for what might fail

Condition-based predictive maintenance (CBPM) is becoming increasingly popular within many industries as a practical and cost-effective means of protecting pumps, motors, gearboxes and other machinery. But of all parameters that might be monitored as part of a CBPM strategy vibration is arguably the most useful - advises Andy Anthony, Managing Director of Monitran.

Constant monitoring protects 24/7 operations

Monitoring the condition of machinery is a practical means of protecting plant and equipment against unexpected failure, and of all conditions that might be monitored vibration levels and temperatures (or rather changes in one or both) often provide the earliest indication that maintenance is necessary. Furthermore, monitoring conditions continuously not only protects plant that needs to run 24/7 but it can also be the foundation of your Condition-Based Predictive Maintenance (CBPM) strategy.
