you can identify any changes in the critical parameters of the machinery. such as:  Temperature  Speed   Vibration You can better schedule maintenance or other actions to be taken to avoid the consequences of failure. . such that a significant change is indicative of a developing failure.WHAT IS A CONDITION MONITORING SYSTEM (CMS) ? Condition monitoring is the process of monitoring the parameters of condition in machinery. By using the right condition monitoring system and vibration analysis equipment. before the failure occurs.

. It specializes in providing you the technical solution to monitor your machinery and keep them running in optimum condition. you know when something starts to go wrong and are able to prevent failure in advance. With condition and vibration monitoring.HOW DOES A CMS HELP? Condition Monitoring Keeps Your Machines Running An effective condition monitoring system pays for itself within a very short time.

CONDITION MONITORING METHODS The Shock Pulse Method (SPM) The Shock Pulse Method (SPM) is the only successful monitoring technique specializing on rolling element bearings by determining accurate information on:   the mechanical state of the bearing surfaces. . the lubricating condition throughout the bearing life-time. The result will be in-depth automatic data evaluation for exceptionally fast and simple troubleshooting. is a practical method to check general machine condition and detect out-of-balance. and loose parts or mountings. based on an international standard. Vibration Severity Measurement(VIB) Vibration severity measurement (VIB). Evaluated Vibration Analysis Method(EVAM) The Evaluated Vibration Analysis Method (EVAM) is a vibration analysis method that is used for analyzing all measurement data in a very sophisticated manner. misalignment.

This approach offers cost savings over routine or time-based preventive maintenance.EFFECTIVE ADVANTAGE OF CMS Predictive Maintenance (PDM) techniques help determine the condition of in-service equipment in order to predict when maintenance should be performed. Such predictive maintenance which are performed only when warranted prevents machine failure and offer higher cost savings over routine time-based preventive maintenance. Serviceable machinery includes rotating machines such as turbines and stationary plant such as boilers and heat exchangers. because tasks are performed only when warranted. .
