If you are not controlling contamination of your lubricants, then you cannot achieve the maximum service life of your rotating machinery or your lubricants. Using lots of 3D animations and animated illustrations, this presentation will focus on gearbox lubrication, explaining why contamination reduces the life of the gears and bearings (and the oil itself), how much the service life is reduced, how to reduce contamination, and how to remove unavoidable (and avoidable) contaminants.
Reliability is often used by plants to define future improvement efforts and set expectations for employees and managers. Understanding how it's defined and how to measure it can often be confusing to your organization.
This video will give you IDCON's concept of Overall Production Efficiency
Maintworld Magazine Participated the Year in Infrastructure Conference 2016
In some cases the use of applied diagnostics fails to give you the expected end result. For instance, a company may buy a system for vibration diagnostics and offer proper training on the device to its staff, but still the anticipated results from it use, such as reduced costs and less unexpected shutdowns, are just not forthcoming. Why is this so?
Ultrasound is a key technology used by maintenance professionals all over the world. Its many applications and quick learning curve are adding to the popularity, but to get the maximum out of an ultrasonic inspection tool, companies need to invest in standardized Certification Training.
More than 40 maintenance professionals from chemical production plants in Benelux joined Mainnovation last month to discuss challenges facing their industry. The key message of the event was straightforward: maintenance is an increasingly critical factor for industrial companies. More attention must, however, be devoted now to extending service life of ageing plants and to technological modernisation.
Excellent leadership is an essential success factor for lasting results for any improvement initiative an organization undertakes. As a leader you need to create an organization of disciples that will follow you to make your vision, or future organization, a reality.
For maintenance programmes, the decades-long migration from Breakdown to Planned to Predictive strategies represents significant, albeit slow-paced, progress. It is interesting to note, however, that by comparison, this progress did not filter down equally to lubrication programmes. A look at the first two strategy phases - Breakdown and Planned – shows a close analogy between corresponding maintenance and lube processes.
ICONICS has announced an IoT World Tour, where it will present its Internet of Things (IoT), analytics, and secure web visualization software solutions for businesses across the globe.
Conveyors and assembly processes are widely used across many industries. As automation continues its upward trend, markets like PET bottling, food and beverage, and general packaging, which see many sudden stops and starts are seeing an increased need for shock absorbers to safely control and dampen the kinetic energy produced throughout the production line.
Mobius Institute, the premier provider of vibration analysis training & certification, has announced the first 2017 International Machine Vibration Analysis Conference (IMVAC).
Many of the world’s most efficient power plants are Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Plants (CCGT) incorporating gas and steam turbines. These turbines present demanding motion control challenges, which affect machine performance, safety, reliability and supply of power to customers.
