Focus On : Plant MRO and Condition Monitoring


Get industrial maintenance right and the rewards are substantial. Not just cost savings, in terms of plant and machinery spared, but also improved plant efficiency and uptime, as well as production quality.

Hence the growing uptake of plant condition monitoring, and predictive and preventive maintenance technologies, all aimed at improving MRO (maintenance, repair and operations).

Technologies on offer range from vibration monitoring to acoustic emissions monitoring, infrared imaging, oil analysis, particle detection and (primarily on process plant) instrument diagnostics – with CMMS (computerised maintenance management systems) coordinating maintenance engineers’ activities.

But with maintenance strategies ranging from reliability centred maintenance to preventive maintenance, and equipment such as thermal cameras and the practice of thermography undergoing rapid development, plant engineers need help.
