Resonance in Industrial Plants, is a difficult problem to diagnose and at the same time, it’s a silent killer of machine uptime and Plant Reliability! The maintenance team probably won’t be asked to go out and correct the resonance problem. Instead, the Plant personnel will treat the symptoms of the resonance problem.

More than 300 million electric motors are used in infrastructure, large buildings, and industry globally. These motors account for about 2/3rds of the industrial power consumption. Electricity is required in almost all areas of the plant to provide the driving force that either operates the equipment that produces the products or provides the services that the plant’s equipment was built to perform..

Due to limited time and tight schedules, major outages require many resources and are often stressful processes. While many companies focus on reactive maintenance because of a culture built decades ago, a small perspective change toward a proactive approach can provide enormous value to equipment reliability and uptime.

Reliability engineers can’t be in two places at once. But when assets from two different plants are raising concern, how does the engineer figure out which one is more likely to contribute to an outage? Remote diagnostics help maintenance teams decide where to deploy valuable resources like subject matter experts, troubleshooting equipment, and spares.......
