ITT, Inc.’s i-ALERT® and Hexagon’s j5 Operator Rounds will integrate their machine health data tracking and analysis features to help heavy industries reduce maintenance costs and unplanned downtime. The new offering can identify operational risks in advance, which significantly reduces the possibility of failure of pumps, motors, and other industrial equipment – as well as the costly repairs they require.
This powerful new solution combines vibration condition data from i-ALERT sensors with other monitoring information gathered during j5 Operator Rounds, including data from external systems, photos, videos and documents. This combined data set gathered by Operations and Maintenance will provide additional reliability information to asset performance management programs.
Operational Risk Management is another important benefit of the solution. With greater insight into machine health, plant operators can avoid potentially dangerous equipment malfunctions. Likewise, they can ensure that equipment complies with health and safety standards.
The solution also provides advantages in terms of environmental protection, especially in plants where hazardous or highly corrosive materials are present. Plant managers have the benefit of highly accurate data about equipment performance and maintenance needs. This helps them minimize the risk of loss of containment incidents to the environment.
