Machine Vibration Monitoring

Always-on condition monitoring for all rotating equipment.

Reduce downtime, improve efficiency, and extend asset life.

Why Machine Vibration Monitoring?

Consequential damages and consequential downtime are the two main reasons to consider a predictive maintenance solution like Machine Vibration Monitoring

Consequential Damages

  • A motor bearing fails and breaks the rotor or stator of a motor
  • Repairing the bearing before it fails would have cost $500
  • Repairing the rotor and stator of the motor now cost $50,000

 

Consequential Downtime

  • The failed motor takes 6 weeks to repair
  • A full production line is taken down for 4 days while a new motor is expedited
  • Loss of production, and product quality issues is 10 times the cost of repairing the motor and 100 times the cost of repairing the failed bearing

Why Should You Care About Machine Vibration Monitoring?

If you are experiencing some of these issues, it will be a good idea to start thinking about implementing a predictive maintenance solution like Machine Vibration Monitoring

Maintenance Manager
  • Replacing the whole machine or multiple parts from an equipment failure
  • Experiencing large workload on maintenance personnel
  • Incurring excessive expedite cost for new parts & equipment
  • Experiencing large backlog & long leads times on repair work orders
Operations Manager
  • Experiencing decreased production rates
  • Incurring frequent production line shutdowns
  • Suffering increased production quality problems
EH&S Manager
  • Experiencing increased reportable accidents from equipment failures
  • Incurring frequent emissions breaches from upset operations
  • Responding to fire and explosion events from equipment failures

 

Vibration Program Already In Place?

If you are looking to expand your existing vibration program and are experiencing these issues, Machine Vibration Monitoring might be the right solution to get your program into the next gear

  • Data collection is slow or infrequent
  • Not enough vibration analysts to cover all the equipment
  • Vibration analyst spends too much time collecting data and not analyzing it
  • Defective data quality impacts failure prediction
  • Insufficient data to effectively predict a failure
  • Equipment difficult to access or not available during the route
  • Cost prohibitive to collect sufficient data to predict a failure in all equipment

Batteryless condition monitoring maximizes returns on Industrial IoT

Realize all the benefits of wireless condition monitoring without the added maintenance required by battery-powered alternatives.  Now, you can have the best of both worlds.  Improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), optimize maintenance routes, minimize unplanned downtime, and extend machine lifetime—all without steep upfront hardware costs, cumbersome technology integration, and costly ongoing battery upkeep.

The most cost-effective method for
24/7 insight into your machinery

For vibration analysts, the process of collecting, reviewing, and reporting on machine health can be time consuming — hours spent traveling to and from sites and machinery, accessing hard-to-reach equipment, waiting for machines to actually be on!  Everactive’s self-powered sensors let vibration analysts remotely and continuously monitor machinery to increase coverage, maximize service reliability, and equipment uptime.  With always-on condition monitoring, only maintain machines that require your attention.

Everactive API

Everactive’s self-powered solutions can now integrate seamlessly into any computerized maintenance management system (CMMS), Enterprise
Asset Management (EAM) or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution using an open Application Programming Interface (API) to provide continuous, maintenance-free monitoring of steam traps and machines.
