IMC-2020 Presentation 52:31 Minutes

by Jeff Hay, RDI Technologies

In the reliability space a small subset of all machines, often deemed critical, are monitored continuously due to cost and time-consuming permanent installation. For the rest of the equipment, it is prohibitive to monitor them continuously. For those that are monitored continuously, in many cases the alarms produced do not provide adequate information to understand what is happening and often result in the need to visit the asset. Camera-based continuous monitoring with the Iris CM powered by Motion Amplification changes the balance of plant by allowing you to easily set up a continuous monitoring system and move it between assets as needed. This greatly increases the number of machines that can affordably be monitored continuously and provides wide coverage, monitoring everything in the field of view. Now you can remotely see the actual faults and solve the problems. Motion Amplification is a proprietary video processing technique that detects subtle displacement and then converts that movement to a level visible with the naked eye, enabling visualization of the movement. Seeing how the machine is moving allows the source of most issues to become clear. That loose bolt is visible. The cracked foundation is obvious. You can see if the motor and pump are bouncing up and down together (in phase) or as if they were on opposite ends of a teeter-totter (out of phase).

Imagine having a tireless colleague that can watch your problem machines 24/7. A colleague with a photographic memory and vision that can slow down motion, amplify it, and share that with your whole team. Now you never have to miss getting the right data and you do not have to guess at what it means. And better yet, you do not have to go to the plant at 2 a.m. on Saturday night.

Proactively Addressing Your Most Chronic Downtime Causing Maintenance Issues

Proactively Addressing Your Most Chronic Downtime Causing Maintenance Issues

Equipment failure is an unwanted, yet unavoidable, reality that negatively affects a facility’s production time, capability, and workplace safety. Unfortunately, due to large workloads in today’s world, maintenance teams tend to conduct reactive maintenance rather than proactive maintenance.
