Sensors, monitors, and other Internet-connected devices are increasingly being used to track, monitor, and control physical objects in production plants, traveling on ships, planes, trains and trucks, or at the store. Sensors can monitor factory or stockroom inventory. According to recent reporting in Fortune, IoT sensors can be used to continuously monitor machine performance, schedule preventative maintenance, and even predict breakdowns, reducing maintenance costs up to 25 percent, cutting unplanned outages up to 50 percent, and extending machine life by years. This is a potential revolution in supply-chain efficiency, equipment upkeep, and inventory management.
Traditional preventive maintenance alone cannot solve the problems of unexpected breakdowns. With asset performance management powered by low-touch machine learning, it’s now possible to extract value from decades of process, asset and maintenance data to optimize asset performance. In this white paper, learn how this disruptive technology deploys precise failure pattern recognition with very high accuracy to predict equipment breakdowns months in advance and advise on prescriptive maintenance. The paper also outlines five best practices for driving state-of-the-art reliability management to increase production and profitability.
It is estimated that between 70 to 90 percent of hydraulic system failures happen due to fluid contamination. If businesses want to get the most out of hydraulic system(s) they should develop a fluid cleanliness plan that monitors microscopic particles in their hydraulic fluid. The goal of a fluid cleanliness plan within a hydraulic system is to maximize productivity and enhance equipment reliability.
Several factors affect how industrial and engine oils are tested. Not only are there two different governing bodies involved in the regulation of these two types of oils, but the operating conditions can be very different. This white paper will explain why industrial oil viscosity is tested at 40 degrees C while engine oil is tested at 100 degrees C.
