There are many ways to evaluate an IEPE (Integrated Electronic PiezoElectric) sensor, or accelerometer, either on its own merits or in comparison to similar competitive models found on the market. The most obvious is a paper comparison, using the spec sheet as a guide. Other options include acquiring the contending sensors and putting them to the test or obtaining word-of-mouth inputs, each of which will likely result in a different conclusion. The most common starting point, however, is a spec sheet appraisal.

Did you know that changing sampling methods to best practice valve sampling can have a significant impact on corporate profitability? That's because the success of an oil analysis program begins with the oil sample sent into the lab. Incorporating condition monitoring alongside valve sampling has shown to contribute to more compliance, better oil analysis results, and increased program savings. Discover the ways you could benefit from best practice oil sampling.

How to Reduce the Hidden Costs and Dangers Lurking Throughout Your Steam System – Continuous, Batteryless Steam Trap Monitoring
This paper will discuss the costs and risks inherent in every steam trap system. We will then explain why two common “solutions” simply don’t solve the problem as well as they could. Finally, we will suggest an easy-to-deploy, cost-effective answer: A continuous monitoring system that uses batteryless sensors to deliver real-time alerting through the cloud, without the need for manual inspection — ever.
