Mechanical assets in industry play a critical role within a facility and have a dramatic effect on production. Therefore the utilization of advanced technologies to understand their health will impact production and overall business effectiveness. Protecting assets per API does not address reliability issues for complete asset Lifecycle
Reliability Concerns as Protection systems do not allow for Root cause failure analysis.
Periodic Condition monitoring solutions often miss shutdown failures leaving reliability groups with no insights into failure modes.
The ability to monitor the health of rotating mechanical assets allows customers to proactively plan for repairs rather than react to unexpected failures. The sharing of information between maintenance and operations means repairs are anticipated and production schedules are adjusted accordingly. The plant recognizes increased availability and performance from production assets, rather than expensive downtime and costly repairs.
