The MOVUS FitMachine condition monitoring solution has been implemented across several ALS customer sites to improve the visibility of rotating equipment condition and help drive a focus on reliability.
The new FitMachine EX has been built specifically for explosive environments where monitoring and maintaining the equipment is extremely hazardous, so safety is critical to engineering and maintenance processes. These include upstream oil and gas, refineries, industrial chemicals, mining and food processing sites.
FitMachine is a condition-based maintenance solution that detects machine failures in advance using artificial intelligence and machine learning. The solution comprises an industrial intrinsically safe wireless sensor, mobile application, analytics and trending dashboards, and an artificial intelligence engine. The system continuously monitors equipment 24x7 and learns what the normal operation of machinery is to detect any abnormalities and alert the organisation before failures occur. The insights provided are extremely valuable in avoiding unplanned downtime. FitMachine EX extends this capability to hazardous environments where intrinsically safe equipment is mandatory.
“From our work with major industrial organisations, we recognised the need for an intrinsically safe sensor. Safety is a core value at MOVUS and we are now excited to bring the FitMachine EX solution to market for the oil & gas, and food processing industries,” said Brad Parsons, Founder and CEO of MOVUS. “We understand that these are extremely sensitive environments where equipment downtime directly impacts the bottom line. By providing the most advanced artificial intelligence-powered condition monitoring solution at a cost-effective price, FitMachine EX delivers a very compelling solution,” he added.
“We have been working with MOVUS for more than twelve months and see great value in the FitMachine EX. Our clients have been asking for an intrinsically safe wireless sensor, and we are very pleased with this advanced technology, rigorous testing and certification, and the rapid development speed,” said Mushfiq Rahman, General Manager - Industrial, Australasia.
ALS and MOVUS will showcase FitMachine EX at the Australasian Oil and Gas (AOG) Conference in Perth March 13 - 15. FitMachine EX is available for pre-purchase now.
