On-line Surveillance for Predictive Maintenance in a Hazardous Environment

  • Peter W. Hills


In a hazardous environment, machinery performance and production demands call for maximum service life and reliability.

Vibration-based Predictive Maintenance Programmes, applying established periodic manual or continuous monitoring techniques, are used widely for most plant situations. However, for hazardous environments with high concentrations of machines and lack of access or unmanned processes, an alternative yet cost-effective vibration data collection technique is required.

By the application of On-Line Surveillance, data from several hundred rotating machines can now be collected and analysed at a realistic cost. Machinery life can be accurately predicted by remote surveillance without the need for a high level of manpower effort.
