Advantages of Online Condition Monitoring
The benefits of online condition monitoring link with its cost saving potential. Through online monitoring, the high cost of technician mobilisation is avoided as it reduces the need for on-site data collection. It also lowers the occurrence of hefty or unforeseen maintenance costs. Beyond spending reductions, continuous monitoring provides a heightened confidence due to the uninterrupted nature of the data collection.
Other advantages include:
- Around the clock data collection which is not dependent on a technician being present on-site.
- Greater confidence that no emergent faults will be overlooked due to data collection.
- Ability to capture intermittent process disturbances affecting equipment reliability, thereby allowing the ability to extend equipment life and foresee signs of potential failure.
- Reduced risk with the lowered need for inspections of asset's at heights, or in remote or confined spaces.
- Reduced stress of maintenance staff.
Online Condition Monitoring provides asset owners with unparalleled confidence and valuable tools to ensure plant operation remains optimised. Equipped to alert for potential failures and the ability indicate increased risk areas, online condition monitoring provides a machine’s health with ongoing attention.
