Condition monitoring analysis and diagnosis
Condition monitoring analysis and diagnosis offers tailored solutions based on process, machinery, probable failures, and failure modes. It supports proactive production planning leading to optimum maintenance costs and reduced downtime. Valmet specialists are available to analyze remotely collected vibration data based on mutual agreement and to offer analysis, prognosis, reports, and recommendations based on machine condition analysis.
Condition monitoring analysis and diagnosis support customers' own condition monitoring activities with expert knowledge and competences. Expert support is typically needed during detailed analysis and diagnostics of problems uncommon for local resources. Support can also be needed to find corrective actions and correct timing for maintenance.
It is important to detect conditions promoting problems or changes in processes and equipment operational behavior early enough to avoid, eliminate or forecast upcoming problems. Planning actions to avoid or follow failure development in accordance with the observations can sometimes be a challenging task even for qualified condition monitoring experts and requires cooperation between local operation and maintenance experts and the service provider. Target is to support local condition monitoring to better meet the targeted availability of assets.
This is achieved by providing expertise to support daily condition monitoring and problem-solving. An important part of co-operation and expert support is the development of condition monitoring, operations, and maintenance.
The target of the co-operation is to move operation and maintenance towards a more condition-based approach and role of condition monitoring from failure follow-up towards an approach where failures are avoided.
