Equipment monitoring plays a large role in a manufacturer’s reliability program. The health of this equipment can also affect energy consumption levels. For motor-driven pumps, fans, compressors, etc., monitoring the electrical energy usage provides an additional indication of equipment health beyond vibration, temperature and other traditional measurements. Emerson’s Matt Austin shared with me a new, […]

Equipment failure is a large part of unplanned downtime, slowdowns and/or loss in quality of the product being produced. Monitoring temperatures, vibration, differential pressures across filters are often performed to identify problems before failure occurs. Another important set of measurements that can provide early warning are the voltage, current and other electrical parameters on the […]
