  • Feature

Machine condition monitoring, also known as machine health monitoring, refers to the process of monitoring and measuring certain parameters in equipment such as temperature, humidity, pressure, and others to detect any significant change and identify faults in equipment. Noise, temperature, and vibration measurements are often the key indicators of the state of equipment. Equipment failure leads to huge losses in terms of productivity and quality of manufactured goods as well as loss of capital spent on the purchasing of new equipment. Thus, machine condition monitoring acts as a predictive maintenance measure.

In the wind energy market, wind turbines need to be operated as cheaply as possible in order to generate electricity at low cost. As maintenance costs of wind turbines are high due to their remote locations, online machine monitoring is cost effective compared to portable diagnostics systems or route-based monitoring. Similarly, in the oil and gas sector, reduction in maintenance and operating costs is of prime importance. Usually, drills and pumps are located in remote locations where expenses of technicians are very high. Online condition monitoring techniques can help to monitor wells, pumps, and refineries from a central location. As a result, maintenance personnel can be deployed only when requirement arises, thereby saving maintenance and operating costs.
