With today’s shrinking qualified workforce, it’s common for plants to have their maintenance staff busy repairing “bad actors”. Reliability Engineer Brad Lewis took a different approach in two separate plants. Supported by Reliability Specialist Cindy Moblo, he developed a program to evaluate and correct the root causes of many of the failures his plants were experiencing. Once the root causes were determined, a step-by-step program was developed to resolve the issues.

This webinar will introduce how criticality analysis can be utilised in setting up your programme and henceforth applied dynamically to prioritise maintenance. It will also introduce the concept of risk-based compliance and how this can be turned into a primary key performance indicator for any predictive maintenance programme.
An insight into how the above approach can be applied will be demonstrated through digitalising risk-based predictive maintenance / condition monitoring reporting.

Remote condition monitoring of bearings and precision lubrication executed anywhere, anytime, and from any device, is already a reality. Pairing the Internet of Things with Ultrasonic sensors has brought the development of innovative maintenance solutions that will take condition monitoring of assets to a whole new level, allowing maintenance teams to stop most bearing failures at its tracks.

Stuart Walker looks at how utilizing the latest visual vibration technology can assist in getting to the root cause of many industrial vibration problems.
Stuart goes through a number of case studies on rotating plant, pipework and structures whereby visualizing the vibration was a key part in understanding the problems right through to rectification and follow up.

Panel Discussion on the Adoption of Condition Monitoring with Matthew Moore, Will Crane and Will Bower
Condition Monitoring has varying levels of adoption and maturity across different industries as many factors influence the awareness, business case and return on investment to justify a predictive maintenance program. Numerous challenges and hurdles also need to be overcome to ensure the success of implementing and operating such a program.
This webinar opens the floor to a panel of condition monitoring practitioners to discuss their experience and answer your queries on the synergies and differences between industries, including: the effect of the working environment, what types of equipment are monitored, what technologies to employ, how frequently to monitor and the processes / organizational / human factors which ensure success.
Questions are welcomed in advance to cover topics of interest as well as during the live session.

It is very common for failure modes to be identified which are nothing to do with bearings and rotating machines. Within the world of bearings, it is generally regarded that lubrication failure is the largest single initiator of failure. We also know that there are defects which do not follow the classic, much-quoted, P-F curve – defects for which trending has little use.
If we know all of these things, what are we doing about them?
This presentation reviews how useful Ultrasound can be to help you implement a broad-ranging improvement strategy.

Tutorial / education on how measurement of motor current can tell you about not just electrical phenomena, but about electrical, mechanical, operational and energy efficiency, in the motor, transmission, driven machine and electrical supply system. This webinar will explain what conventional MCSA systems did and how they work, and explain how newer technologies such as Model-Based Voltage and Current (MBVI) systems effectively use the motor as a sensor, detecting torsional vibration signals. It will explore the similarities and differences between the outputs of MBVI systems vs conventional Vibration Monitoring systems, and the situations in which each technique has advantages and disadvantages.
