Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), recently announced an agreement with Emirates National Oil Co. (ENOC) to co-develop a lubricant monitoring system that can be deployed in multiple industries using large machinery. VitalyX is a cloud-based system designed to detect and measure key lubricant properties in real time while simultaneously converting the data into alerts and alarms to identify potential issues.
"We believe that our agreement with BHGE will play a key role in revolutionizing lubricant quality testing and physical asset management," said Saif Al Falasi, ENOC Group CEO. "We at ENOC are pleased to have been able to work with BHGE on the development of this innovation and look forward to developing many other projects in the near future."
The new monitoring system uses enhanced algorithms and machine learning to create a picture of a machine’s health and prevent asset loss. A user-friendly dashboard can show fleet-wide data down to the individual asset level and stored either in a shared cloud or locally.
"Our joint focus on lubricant monitoring is a critical and essential element toward making industries safer and more efficient," said Diarmaid Mulholland, CEO of BHGE’s Measurement and Sensing business. "Our co-development of VitalyX with ENOC not only ensures we deliver technology that works in real-world extreme conditions but also has proven experience in the field. This technology is a prime example of the industrial internet of things in action – hardware and software working seamlessly together, taking sensor data to deliver new insights we could never achieve before."
