Invaluable Data Allows Our Client to Avoid System Downtime
In early 2016, one of our clients was monitoring a Cooling Tower fan gearbox using the Uptime Solutions wireless vibration monitoring system. The advanced wireless technology that the Uptime Solutions system utilizes allowed the user to track a defect on a 24/7 scale.
After closely monitoring, the client was able to determine if the equipment was going to be able to run at normal capacity until scheduled downtime during which they could make the necessary fixes and changes. Because of the speed and accuracy of the data that the Uptime Solutions wireless monitoring system provides, the decision was made to permanently install the Uptime Solutions vibration monitoring system on all of the Cooling Tower fan gearboxes.
The success of the installation has led to growth into other areas of the site including feed water pumps, Kamyrs, Paper machines, Pulp mills, and more. Uptime Solutions’ versatility allows our condition monitoring system to be applicable to any industry.
With all of the options available in vibration monitoring systems it can sometimes be difficult to decide which one is best for your company. Understanding your reliability needs, finding a system that gives you accurate, essential vibration and process sensor data to pinpoint issues are very important, and of course COST. Finding a TRULY wireless monitoring system can be easy, but can it give you results?
The Storm-X – Advanced Monitoring Solution for Predictive Maintenance
The other day a client called looking for an advanced monitoring solution that could offer cost-effective vibration monitoring, as well as, being a completely wireless sensor monitoring system. The client was directed to the Storm-X product that Uptime offers. The Storm-X is an innovative triaxial accelerometer sensor with a built-in temperature sensor. This sensor provides trend, spectrum, and waveform data plus temperature for fast and accurate vibration monitoring.
The client installed the sensor on a moving piece of equipment and was able to diagnose an out race defect within 48 hours. Because of the accuracy and clarity of the data the sensor provided in conjunction with the diagnostic capabilities of the Uptime Software, He saved the company thousands in downtime and overtime which in turn earned him a few “at-a-boys” from the powers that be.
With all of the thousands of gears, motors, fans, pumps, and other parts that you have to monitor, it can be difficult to keep track of all of them; especially when it comes to monitoring issues on a 24/7 basis due to an imminent failure of the equipment.
