Condition Monitoring Management & AI
In this SME interview, we talked with Jarrod Potteiger, Product and Educational Services Manager for Des-Case Corporation. Jarrod explains why fluid condition management is so important for hydraulic reliability. He discusses how to develop a strategy for condition management, how to deal with air contamination, defines what a good filtration system set-up looks like, and discusses oil analysis as a proactive condition monitoring tool.

The Society for Maintenance and Reliability Professionals (SMRP) is preparing to welcome attendees for its 29th Annual Conference. Hear from SMRP Executive Director Erin Erickson about what's in store for attendees at this year's event.
The need for reliably detecting reciprocating compressor cylinder leaks is important because this gives an indication of excessive wear or damage of a consumable component, such as the valves (which account for the majority of maintenance), piston rings and packing.

From pumps to compressors, turbines to gearboxes, equipment reliability is vital to maintain a competitive advantage. Layer in the exceptionally high downtime costs of certain units that can exceed $1MM a day, the harsh operating environment (typically outside), and the long turnaround cycles that can extend to 3-5 years and it all adds up to a significant challenge.

Technology in predictive maintenance is growing fast, and so is Condition Monitoring which is one of the its most important activities. In particular, the wireless sensors in Condition Monitoring came to change completely the way we used to see machinery reliability.
What is Condition Monitoring? What do we need to learn about modern technologies applied in it? Well, I am a Vibration Analysis technology developer and I invite you to take some time to read this few tips I have written for you.

Pumps are critical pieces of equipment in a large variety of industrial settings. Although they are routinely monitored as part of a facility’s CBM program, the data captured in this way isn’t always enough to identify the signs of early-stage pump cavitation. Vibration data can provide valuable insight into the pump’s condition, and with the right monitoring setup can help you identify developing cavitation before serious damage or failure occurs.

In the Part 2 the practical example will be analyzed.
Let’s look the background and calculate the most common frequencies produced by motor that potentially will be required for further analysis.
