Condition Monitoring

May 29, 2012 | Blue Oceans, condition monitoring, preventative maintenance

Condition monitoring is the process of monitoring a parameter of condition in machinery. Development failure can be identified through substantial change and avoided and prevented through early detection.  Condition monitoring is a key element in preventive maintenance. Changes can be indicated in such ways as temperature levels or vibration behaviors. Identifying and fixing problems in their early stages is typically much more cost effective than allowing the machinery to fail before repair. This means faster repair time and therefore less downtime of machinery.

Analysing substances such as oil, fuel, coolant, dielectric, grease, turbines, and hydraulic oil can all indicate potential mechanical problems within a machine that can be fixed.

Techenomics is a lubrication and condition monitoring specialist company operating throughout Australia, Asia and in Madagascar. They provide services such as oil analysis, oil monitoring, lubrication and filtration solutions to fixed and mobile plant, which can considerably increase equipment usage, reduce unscheduled downtime and diminish costs. They first introduced proactive condition monitoring and fluid management services into their company in 1988. With nearly 25 years of experience Technomics offer effective, efficient and professional services through Australia and around the world.

Techenomics have developed a specialised software package called Blue Oceans.  This software enables the results from ongoing condition monitoring and preventive maintenance to be recorded and tracked to easily identify usage and wear trends in particular machines. Blue Oceans software also offers a flexible reporting format that can be modified to suit the specific needs of customers. By examining past trends, future wear patterns can be predicted and therefore avoided. This helps increase the efficiency and cost effectiveness of an operation.

Techenomics also have a service truck that provides mobile condition monitoring and preventive maintenance to mine sites. This is a convenient and efficient service that enables analysis to be done direct from the mine floor.
