Just as technology has been rapidly developing in fields like telecom, data analytics, smart devices and infrastructure, the same can be said of asset condition monitoring. For asset maintenance, the cutting edge development has been remote monitoring – the ability to collect and analyze data from a given asset without the need to be there in person. Plant maintenance technicians have increasingly recognized the benefits of predictive maintenance in keeping equipment online and preventing unplanned shutdowns.
Ultrasound remote monitoring
Ultrasound technology has emerged as an essential tool. It’s no longer simply a leak detector – it is a valuable technology that allows maintenance teams to identify mechanical faults earlier in the P-F curve.
