According to Plant Engineering’s 2017 Maintenance Report, 69% of respondents have decreased downtime with a preventative maintenance program, while 66% report a reduced probability of equipment failure, 63% experienced improved overall equipment effectiveness and 62% have improved their plant’s safety. Read more about why oil condition monitoring is crucial in preventative maintenance
Online oil condition monitoring has been proven to detect short term events and abnormal patterns in oil quality degradation. However, online oil condition monitoring is also extremely useful in the long term to extend oil life and maximize the equipment’s useful operating life. Read this case study to hear more about life maximization in a diesel truck engine.
Having a large amount of high quality data is extremely important in order to make the best decisions on how to operate your assets and minimize issues. Read about how online oil condition monitoring systems are able to provide the data necessary to make optimal maintenance decisions and have proven to be critical, cost-saving tools.
In large vehicles, fluid leaks from any number of areas can cause severe damage and even catastrophic failure if they leak into and contaminate the engine oil. This in-field application of Poseidon Systems’ online oil condition sensors showcases how online oil condition monitoring can detect these kinds of leaks with great specificity before they lead to expensive damage and prolonged downtime.
Online debris monitoring of metallic debris enables changes in severity to be observed and tracked in real-time, allowing adjustments in operation to prevent catastrophic failure and extend operating life until a repair or replacement can occur. Read more about why you should implement real-time monitoring!
Understanding the advancements in online oil condition monitoring (OCM) is critical in establishing the value it can bring; online OCM is no longer just capable of sharing similar measurements as lab oil sampling, it is able to provide more.
Optical particle counting is a common technique used to monitor the health of equipment, but it has little-to-no correlation to equipment health—read why!
