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. Andy Anthony, Managing Director of Monitran, explains why and provides examples.

A newly developed condition monitoring system is proving its worth in the dairy industry.
Adopting a condition-based predictive maintenance (CBPM) strategy is widely recognised as the best way of protecting expensive plant and equipment - particular that which is required to operate 24/7 - against unexpected failure and as a means of better scheduling servicing.
Andy Anthony, Managing Director of Monitran, explains how a leading producer of potato crisps is using vibration sensors and an advanced site-wide condition monitoring system to protect machinery, better schedule maintenance and keep production on track.
Crisps production involves a variety of machines with rotating and moving parts, plus flowing water, hot oils and pneumatics.
Implementing continuous condition monitoring need not be as complex or as expensive as you might think. Andy Anthony, Managing Director of Monitran, explains why.
Monitoring the condition of machinery is a practical means of protecting plant and equipment against unexpected failure; as changes in vibration levels or temperature often provide the earliest indication that maintenance is necessary.
