Detect abnormalities caused by the top 4 pump and motor faults

Continuous condition monitoring is one of the first steps toward predictive maintenance and, ultimately, connected reliability, which gives teams a roadmap for moving past incremental gains to make a quantum leap to an ideal setup. Condition monitoring allows maintenance teams to obtain baseline data, trend data to detect changes and investigate these changes when abnormalities…

Typical causes of electric motor winding failures and how to prevent them

Electric motors serve as a critical component for any facility. However, electric motors can be prone to any number of issues that lead to motor faults and failures, which can disrupt business operations, decrease productivity and adversely impact a company‚Äôs bottom line. Yet, monitoring the health of electric motors is not typically a priority for…

Making predictive maintenance more predictable with thermal monitoring

No matter the industry or facility, the ability to respond faster to sudden degradation in asset performance reduces the potential for catastrophic failure and helps curtail damage costs. During the last decade, maintenance managers have grown to rely more and more on thermal imaging for preventive maintenance and troubleshooting in manufacturing processes. The reason is…
