In general, rotating equipment have the highest failure rates (Figure below). Vibration, fatigue, cavitation and electrical anomalies are frequently found to be root causes for rotating equipment failures, especially pumps.
All rotating equipment vibrates, however, the changes in vibration levels over time are indicators of possible problems. Prognose highlights these changes with alerts & notifications to the operator. In the chemicals industry, about 5%+ of the pumps in use consume 50%+ of the money spent on pump maintenance and repair.
This is excluding the losses caused by downtime. Operator’s experience in combination with Prognose BI helps in identifying the root causes (vibration/temp/elec) and treating them without any ado.
