Why Condition Monitoring
Our Services: The Condition Monitoring discipline involves monitoring an asset to identify any significant change in that asset or its components. For example, heat, noise, vibration change which signals a potential defect that may impact that assets remaining useful life. The goal of Condition Monitoring is to fully understand the actual condition of all critical assets. Then to advise on maintenance/ correctional work prior to the potential loss of equipment function.
- When performing Condition Monitoring surveys JPS Reliability are exposed to the same hazards as operators and maintainers.
- We work close to critical assets both in operational and offline state, and without following the appropriate safety process and putting adequate controls in place, the risk of serious injury or a fatality is real.
Savings – Direct and Indirect:
- Safety is improved as the system Reliability is improved, this is by reducing the number of maintenance tasks and emergency work, resulting in less exposure time.
- Assets that fail cost more to repair than assets managed via a Condition Based Maintenance program.
- There are many other opportunities to reduce costs. These all rely on improving reliability and performing maintenance based on the condition of the asset (Condition Monitoring). This then leads to a defect elimination program.
Mitigating the Risk of Asset Failure:
- How and when we carry out the maintenance tasks can have a big impact on the asset’s efficiency and associated costs.
- Condition Monitoring tasks drive and support the overall asset maintenance strategy by prescribing the necessary maintenance tasks.
- Reduced failure by moving from a predictive to proactive mindset.
- Corrected potential issues prior to asset failure, as opposed to once breakdowns have occurred.
