Rotating equipment’s are an essential part of any process / chemical / fertilizer / oil & gas or power plant and have versatile role in operations and productivity. Due to massive rotation / use, there is always wear and tear in moving parts which may result heavy losses in terms of productivity, material, human and reputation in case of failure for in time delivery of product. It’s a common trend in the industry across the globe to adopt planned maintenance schedules as provided by original equipment manufacturers (OEM). Such planned maintenance make it possible to curb the sudden faults and save the productivity. Artesis is one of the leading predictive maintenance companies with innovative predictive maintenance solutions. Artesis is one of the first companies that come to mind when it comes to predictive maintenance company today.
With the passage of time, preventive maintenance concept comes into reality which focuses on to eliminate the fault before happening which ultimately make this possible to increase the equipment life span. Motor, generator, compressors, pumps etc. are key rotating equipment’s used in the industry. Different sort of supervisory instruments i.e. vibration analyser, temperature sensor, proximity sensor etc. are used to monitor the online equipment conditions to predict the health and keep updated the management to take steps ahead of any disaster.
Why Predictive Maintenance so Important?
Model Based Voltage and Current (MBVI) is a new concept which is widely used worldwide and getting popularity due to its cost effectiveness, easy to use / install and high accuracy. This system is condition based monitoring system which is advanced version of preventive maintenance. MBVI system uses current online data for further diagnoses the moving parts health condition and also capable to store the data. Such data record make it possible for experts to look if there is any deviation in voltage and current waveforms from normal conditions. This system is installed in Motor / or any equipment control panel and measures the input voltage and current. In case of any fault, the waveforms of V & I will change the shape and such situation will be diagnosed by experts.
Artesis Leading Predictive Maintenance Company
It’s evident that faults / abnormal conditions do not arise suddenly. MBVI system has the advantage to early diagnose future faults and voltage and current waveforms are prediction parameters. Every fault has its own waveform and pin point the detection of faulty area in equipment. It’s unlike the maintenance planning which requires maintenance after lapse of specific time but in MBVI, system will tell by itself that maintenance is required at a specific time as per current situation which not only saves revenue but also production. Saving money make it happen to be more competitive in market and is ultimate edge in current era of competitiveness. Another benefit of this system is less costly as no such instruments are required to be installed on motors except VI module and highly reliable.
MBVI system is artificially so competitive that from commissioning it read the information, store that and in future, it compares the current readings with previous ones. In this way, accurate analysis is carried out to help the experts at what time and which kind of maintenance is required.
Therefore; MBVI system is became an integral part of any highly sophisticated rotatory equipment for its safe and economical operation. Thanks to sensorless predictive maintenance technology, Artesis is a great solution to problems experienced in dangerous and hard-to-reach places. By simply measuring current and voltage, you can easily detect both mechanical and electrical faults in advance.
