The benefits of a proactive predictive maintenance strategy, where work on a piece of equipment is carried out just before it is predicted to fail, are well known; less unplanned equipment downtime so fewer expensive process interruptions, lower total cost of ownership, longer equipment life and better efficiency, as well maintained equipment performs better. However, one downside is that it can be labour intensive where when manual data acquisition needs to be carried out. Of course, an ignored problem often turns into something far worse and ultimately more costly. Ignorance may not be bliss after all.
People, Planet & Production
When dust and fume extraction systems are involved Nederman makes it a priority to protect People, Planet and Production from the many hazardous effects of industrial air pollution. Nederman are also focused on helping our customers striving to achieve Health and Safety and Environmental regulatory compliance.
Nederman Insight, our cloud based remote monitoring system, can give you peace of mind that your dust collection system is running within its operational parameters and regulatory compliance is being maintained. Using our proprietary network of sensors and monitoring software, your system can be under surveillance 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Meaning, you are now in more control than ever before.
Insight can help predict when the optimal time for a maintenance intervention will be. For example, the ideal time for a filter media change can be determined and planned for by referring to the pressure differential trend, or the trend in vibration of a fan can be used to predict the likelihood of bearing failure. It can also let you know immediately when something has failed or is about to fail by means of a set of configurable alarms, no matter where you happen to be in the world, via a user friendly web based dashboard and smartphone app. All backed up by experienced Nederman analysts skilled at interpreting the data.
The Perfect Package Tailored To Your Needs
Not only can Nederman Insight provide visibility of real time operational data 24/7 from anywhere in the world, it also provides flexibility, in that the data being seen can be tailored to each customer’s specific process. The basic Insight package includes sensors to measure pressure loss across the filter media, fan running current, pressure in the upstream ductwork and for combustible dust applications status of the explosion protection equipment. In addition, a number of additional sensors can be added allowing you to tailor your insight system to monitor other process critical parameters such as the dust discharge equipment, fan vibration, compressed air pressure, process air temperature, etc. creating a bespoke system that meets your exact needs.
Never be in the dark again about the performance of your dust or fume extraction system again. Nederman Insight: The data you need at your fingertips, anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
