Condition Monitoring with a Vibration Analysis
Condition Monitoring – Predictive Maintenance
If you’ve ever gotten a call on your day off informing you that a critical system is down, you can certainly appreciate that the ability to receive adequate warning of a system failure is more of a necessity than a luxury. Scheduling repairs during downtime saves time, stress and money.
This article is a great overview of the benefits and challenges that facility managers experience when implementing an effective condition monitoring program for their facility. As stated in the article, machines try to warn you of impending problems through changes in vibration, sound, temperature etc. If a problem or failure of your equipment could lead to a total shut-down, it would be smart to implement a predictive maintenance program. Selecting and implementing an appropriate testing schedule allows facility managers to catch impending problems before catastrophic failure occurs. When a technician notices a potential problem, he or she can head off equipment failure and save your company from potential revenue loss due to unscheduled shut downs.
