Implementation and ongoing costs of predictive maintenance to fall as new sensors linked to machine learning assess the health of heavy machinery
Chesterfield, Derbyshire. 6 November, 2018: IoT Solution Provider, InVMA today announced new capabilities for AssetMinder®, its turnkey asset performance management solution. AssetMinder has now been extended to include high frequency vibration sensors that measure vibration levels and temperature, which are critical to assess the state of health of heavy machinery.
Available from today, AssetMinder now includes the capability to transform the remote monitoring of mission-critical, heavy industrial assets such as compressors, pumps, centrifuges and generators. This will help businesses reduce costs and improve the reliability of their results. When used in conjunction with other relevant process measurements and machine learning capabilities, this new can help to predict failure and reduce costly downtime.
Currently, this type of asset is monitored with portable vibration monitoring equipment which requires field service and additional human resources due to being a labour intensive system. Moreover, the period of testing is not completely reliable as it only shows the equipment state at the time of sampling. While permanent measuring equipment can be costly to install as it requires additional hardware elements.
“Customers today want a complete solution that allows them to monitor their mission-critical, high speed, heavy industrial assets that is easy to implement, open, scalable, secure and extremely affordable,” said Pat Nash, managing director, InVMA. “We’ve responded to that need to include high frequency vibration sensors in our AssetMinder solution.”
The new high frequency vibration sensors now available within the AssetMinder solution solve these challenges with sensors fitted using magnetic mounts, cutting the installation time to minutes. The maintenance of high-speed rotation assets, such as compressors, is further improved with high frequency sample rate and BLE accelerometer. The system notifies users of deteriorating conditions and provides additional information for engineers, allowing them to then apply their specialist knowledge to solve the problem. Ultimately this means that maintenance process can be automated, saving time and money for the asset owner. The technology is also available for use in hazardous area applications as it has been ATEX certified.
“By including the high frequency vibration sensor technology into the existing AssetMinder solution, we’ve made the solution easy to implement and accessible to all organisations,” continued Nash. “These new sensors will mean that even more businesses will be able to improve their performance by harvesting the right information and generating actionable insights.”
AssetMinder, with the new high frequency vibration sensor technology included will be available from 6th November when InVMA will exhibit on Stand 84 at maintec 2018 on 6-7 November in Birmingham, UK.
