Condition Monitoring is a necessity in all process industries. Our monitoring solutions for safety, condition and performance monitoring of rotating machinery in many applications in industries such as steel, mining, cement, pulp and paper, maritime and other industries:
FLSmidth has recently selected the VCM-3 field monitor from Brüel & Kjær Vibro (B&K Vibro) as an OEM installation on their cement kilns. This applies to both new customers requesting comprehensive monitoring capabilities, as well as a retrofit on existing kilns. These high quality, high performance kilns can now deliver optimal uptime by utilizing a dedicated vibration condition monitoring solution. Extensive research and development was done in collaboration with the project teams, where FLSmidth provided expertise on the equipment design, operation, maintenance and failure modes, and on their existing monitoring techniques, while B&K Vibro provided their expertise on data acquisition and processing, and optimizing measurement techniques for early and reliable fault detection.

Vibration Analysis is an important maintenance tool that is often used to monitor the overall condition of heavy industrial machinery. Vibration Analysis allows you to detect issues that can lead to equipment failure, breakdowns, and shutdowns. This process will show errors and faults before the machinery starts to display any noticeable signs of failure. Therefore, you will know exactly which areas of the machine need to be maintained before it becomes a major problem.
Guided wave radar technology is a method of measuring the level of liquids with radio waves. It is used in continuous measurement systems for various applications, from the chemical industry to oil and gas production, water treatment plants, and more.
Plant managers are continuous on the lookout for ways to improve the productivity and efficiency of plant processes. There is a growing need for solutions that simplify the collection of data from equipment. Yokogawa realized this demand in the process industry. Hence in 2019, the Sushi Sensor – a compact, wireless sensor for measuring vibration and temperature – was launched. This smart sensor is also optimized for Industrial IoT applications (IIoT). But what makes the Sushi Sensor special? For which assets are they applicable to and how does it realize preventive maintenance? In this blog, we’re going to answer 7 frequently asked questions about the Sushi Sensor.
For industries such as steel, mining, cement, pulp and paper, maritime and others, our monitoring solutions for rotating machinery are in use in many applications around the world. They all require dedicated monitoring solutions and strategies:
Today, terabytes of signal data are being generated from sensors embedded in industrial equipment. The capability to handle such large streams of data and draw actionable conclusions from is a task that requires artificial intelligence.
The SKF Wireless Machine Condition Sensor combines a sensor, data collector and radio into one compact, battery-operated device that measures both vibration and temperature data.
Many companies have begun to switch from the old model of internal, direct salespeople to engaging a sales agency to represent their products instead. This is a fast-growing trend, especially in highly technical fields such as manufacturing. Why are so many companies making this decision?
We have recently made changes to our condition monitoring product line, including acquiring a new partnership with a condition monitoring manufacturer and hiring a new full-time condition monitoring expert to support our new offerings. We are extremely proud to announce Jeremy Morton as our new condition monitoring and mechanical solutions leader. Jeremy has over 15 years of experience providing asset performance management and condition monitoring and protection solutions to a wide range of end users in the oil and gas, petrochemical, and power generation industries.
