“Integrating Data For a Complete Picture of Machinery Health”

Mechanical equipment will eventually break down. It is simply a matter of time. You can only hope that the breakdown doesn’t occur at the peak of your production schedule, or be caused by an out-of-inventory part. But if you know the health of your rotating mechanical assets, you are able to plan for repairs rather than react to unexpected failures. And sharing that information between maintenance and operations means repairs are anticipated and production schedules are adjusted accordingly. The plant recognizes increased availability and performance from production assets, rather than expensive downtime and costly repairs.

Emerson’s AMS® Suite: Machinery Health Manager diagnoses and communicates the health of mechanical and rotating machinery using data from several predictive maintenance technologies. The result? A comprehensive view of each monitored machine and a more accurate diagnosis when developing problems are discovered.

Integrated Solution

AMS Machinery Manager integrates multiple predictive monitoring technologies that recognize different types of mechanical assets and unique failure symptoms. The modular technology applications incorporate multiple diagnostic and reporting capabilities into a common database for a comprehensive analysis of machinery health across the entire plant.

Through this multi-technology integration you gain a comprehensive view of each monitored machine and a more accurate diagnosis of developing problems. Correlation of machinery health from multi technologies into a single database means the diagnosis will be more accurate and can be fixed one time instead of fixing the symptoms over and over again based on one technology’s findings.

The integrated technology solutions include:

  • Portable Vibration Analysis
  • Continuous Online Machinery
  • Monitoring combining integration with process automation systems
  • Wireless Vibration Analysis
  • Lubrication Analysis
  • Infrared Thermography
  • AC Motor Diagnostics
  • Ultrasonic Analysis
  • Laser Alignment
  • Dynamic Balancing
