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.
Mechanical rotating and reciprocating equipment such as pumps, motors, compressors or turbines, are some of the most critical assets within an industrial facility. Production rates can be dramatically affected in the event of a sudden failure.
Emerson’s advanced predictive technologies provide insight into the health of mechanical assets allowing customers to develop proactive maintenance strategies positively impacting production, operation and revenue. Puffer-Sweiven offers a wide selection of technologies for the condition monitoring of this mechanical equipment.
Structural and Process
Protecting assets per API does not address reliability issues for the complete lifecycle of the asset 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. Structural failure can cause process interruptions leading to production losses, have a negative impact on the environment, and pose substantial safety risks. Puffer-Sweiven provides a full line of versatile sensors for use in the analysis of structural conditions.
