The ability to monitor the condition of assets 24/7, from any location, is becoming the new trend in maintenance best practices. Just how far has technology come in asset maintenance, and what does that mean going forward?

While Industry 4.0 has brought real-time monitoring of assets to the forefront, what are we learning? In this webinar we’ll explore several case studies of continuously monitored assets. We’ll also look at case studies from vibration and ultrasound that show conditions that were undetected with route-based monitoring.

In this presentation we will discuss how to use ESA/MCSA to detect bearing and gear defects in a variety of driven equipment including geared elevators, cooling towers, and other applications, even when we are looking at a few RPM. We will discuss how to determine the correct frequencies as well as how to determine the defect severity amplitudes in -dB, and how to isolate the machine you are testing from nearby machines. Several case studies will be presented including an AC building elevator, a cooling tower, and at least one complex (multi-stage) gearbox using both data collection and continuous monitoring.

Online monitoring is the process of utilizing permanently mounted sensors to regularly check the condition of a machine. Online monitoring should consist of more than just vibration sensors. Given there are many different failure modes it is best to utilize a variety of sensor types to monitor the necessary variable to ensure early warning of failure.
