Condition monitoring identifies hidden defects in equipment to improve the reliability of critical assets. It also helps uncover the causes of failure and guides the most effective corrective action.
We use diagnostic and prognostic assessments to create a reliability risk map of your mechanical and electrical plant, and use this as a foundation for a future-focused asset management strategy. The latest condition monitoring technology makes it possible to establish a baseline ‘normal’ standard of operation for all equipment by measurement and analysis of defined parameters. Component failure is often preceded by changes in these parameters, so keeping track of them helps you decide on the best course of action, whether that’s immediate maintenance or run-to-failure. Once you’ve addressed the issue, a further condition assessment is essential to ensure that the repair has been effective.
Our condition monitoring services and training are delivered by Martec, a Pragma Group company.
Case Study | Formex | Manufacturing | Automotive
The results of the air leak survey has triggered an energy management drive within the company. Employees are made aware of the costs of air leaks and urged to inform maintenance of identified leaks. This drive initiative has improved maintenance planning and prove to have direct impact on reduce wasted expenditure.
Case Study | On-line condition Assessment Findings of MV Power System (DRUPPS)
Replacement of the feeder cables and terminations under the Pragma quality assurance processes will ensure that the installation, offline test and online assessment standards are met and will avoid incorrect replacement that can be costly.
Case Study | Dissolved Gas Analysis Findings of Nampak Glass Transformers
To improve the process of removing the moisture in the transformer oil, a filtration method was implemented with the transformer in operation to use the service temperature to drive the moisture out of the insulation system.
