A small number of semiconductor manufacturers have overcome the noise, bandwidth and g-Range shortcomings commonly associated with MEMS sensors used in Condition based Monitoring (CbM) by producing several medium and high-performance MEMS vibration sensors with the latter being comparable to piezo accelerometers.

What is important to know is that vibration monitoring techniques that are widely used at present generate the domain of informative features of equipment defects in a form that is extremely problematic for automatic systems. The main issue is...

Preventive and predictive maintenance may achieve the same goals (healthy assets), but only one keeps costs reined in while improving maintenance as a business value driver.

Overhead cranes are often a single source cause of downtime in any manufacturing facility, especially when discussing those performing services in a steel mill’s melt shop. Often, these assets do not have redundancy that would allow for one to be taken....

Every day, knowledge walks out the door in the form of retiring workers. Companies that develop creative ways to entrench institutional knowledge into the organization before it disappears gain a competitive advantage...

EMSDs, along with data analysis and a new approach to maintenance called condition-based maintenance, can exploit the information age to not only bridge the knowledge gap, but to also improve the efficiency, safety, reliability and cost of electrical system maintenance…

Some people are surprised to hear about condition monitoring being applied in a library. In the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, we have 60 or more pumps, around 100 AHUs, and around 11 transformers and generators. We started the condition monitoring program in...
