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.

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.

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.

This webinar provides insights into a career in condition monitoring, what has changed over the years, the importance of site experience, training and mentoring, digitalising reporting and why the future still looks bright!
Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned practitioner numerous tips, tricks and short stories will illustrate best practices and how to improve analysis skills, replacing the need for luck with the benefits of judgement.

There are several different technologies that can be used, alone or in combination, to monitor the condition of your machinery from a predictive maintenance (PdM) perspective. The criticality of the machine affects the number of such inspection-type technologies that are applied to a given failure mode. The more critical the machine and the more critical the failure mode, the more redundancy you will want in the inspections.

Vibration Monitoring is the most commonly used condition monitoring method for rotating machines. Since resources are limited and we have a variety of Vibration Monitoring techniques, we have to ensure that our selection of VM technique is justifiable, hence it's required to follow a systematic procedures which are structured based on reasonably agreed criteria.

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.

The 2020 calendar year has certainly brought with it many challenges for a variety of industries. The medical field, pulp and paper industry and food supply chain have all been significantly impacted by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. At the grocery store, people experienced (or are still experiencing) empty shelves, limited food supply and less variety when doing weekly shopping. In March 2020, grocery and supply sales increased 29% from the previous year (3).
