SOLUTIONS AND APPLICATIONS / Keep Your Assets Up & Running with Innovative Troubleshooting Solutions

Being in the industry, exposure to downtime and breakdowns is considered as a serious issue for any major company. This could bring dramatic losses to a company within a short period.

The real question to ask is: How much-unexpected downtime costs your facility per minute, hour, or day? In your facility, how much of that unexpected downtime can you prevent? Making the right maintenance choices and investments can help to minimize these surprises. With an all-day operation for maximized output and products, mistakes are meant to be avoided in order not to hurt the company's economy which may be at stake.


Customer challenges:

Maintenance and reliability teams are under more pressure now than ever before to keep the increasing number of assets up and running all the time. Technician could spend all day finding the root cause of intermittent failure in assets which drain on time, and money and lead to production losses.

In order to ensure proper cable fastening solutions are being implemented in harsh environments, many times stainless steel cable ties will be specified for use. However, not all stainless cable ties are created equal, and it is critical to thoroughly evaluate available options in order to choose the one that is safest and most reliable.

Many plants are still operating with a "run to failure" maintenance strategy. In this mode, no actions been taken until machinery fails. The failure will lead to a shutdown or power tripping where this will caused to production loss and increase the company expenses by getting external expertise to solve the issue.

Some companies have transitioned to preventive, or calendar-based, maintenance. In this mode, actions are scheduled regardless of the actual condition of the equipment. With this approach, fault-free machines can be repaired unnecessarily, which leading to higher program costs.



XtructureD Solutions: Minimizing Production Shutdown

Fluke handheld Industrial Acoustic Imager (Sonic industrial Imager) allowed technician to quickly and accurately locate air, gas and vacuum leaks in compressed air systems with its technology which converting the sound waves to a visual image - SoundSight™. Its built-in acoustic array of tiny sensitive microphones generates a spectrum of decibel levels per frequency. The Sonic Industrial Imager allowed technicians see sound as they scan hoses, fittings, and connections for leaks.

Panduit also offers a Factory Custom Marking Service for embossed or laser etched marker plates, tags, and ties to speed installation time and reduce labour costs. This global custom marking service provides rapid response and quick product availability to keep projects on schedule and within budget.

Fluke Vibration Tester, the most advanced troubleshooting tool for mechanical maintenance teams to quickly identify and prioritize mechanical problems. The combination of diagnoses, severity and repair recommendations help user make informed maintenance decisions and address critical problems first. It comes with laser tachometer for accurate machine running speed to promotes confident diagnoses.

Fluke Power Quality Analyzer with its patented energy loss algorithm and unified measurement allowed user to pinpoint the origin of energy waste within a system immediately. It helps to locate, predict, prevent, and troubleshoot power quality problems in three-phase and single-phase power distribution systems, while giving technicians the mechanical and electrical information they need to effectively evaluate motor performance.

Fluke Thermal Imager / Infrared Camera allowed user to detect issues before they become problems. It comes with more intuitive visual interface, improved, user-tested, touch screen interface to ease the visualize and diagnose issue with sharper onscreen image to capture the smallest differences, latest technology for on-screen clarity and lens compatibility to capture targets tiny-to-large. It also enables user to capture the infrared image from long distance.

Fluke tools comes Fluke Connect® system which able to wirelessly sync images directly from your camera, and attach to an asset record or work order. It allowed team members to view the same data instantly at the different locations.


Benefit

Fluke Power Monitoring mitigate unnecessary preventive maintenance work by knowing exactly when assets are healthy status. Using condition monitoring sensors with the Fluke Connect™ Condition Monitoring (FCCM) software empowers maintenance professionals to trend data to determine exactly when assets need attention. It allows user to view real-time information, trend historical data, organize it by asset and create dashboards to better monitor machinery. The software also sends alerts to apps on PCs and smart devices to keep user informed in real time when the power isn't sufficient.

Fluke vibration testing and infrared thermography help to detect the changes and perform the right corrective action at the right time. By monitoring the equipment performance and scheduling maintenance when needed, it reduces the likelihood of unscheduled downtime due to equipment failure, save on the maintenance fees and equipment repair cost and prolong the lifespan of machine asset.

With Fluke infrared camera, user can inspect the electrical systems in a farther distance especially in a potentially explosive environment and still get the detail needed. This can reduce the risk, and perhaps reduce the amount of personal protective equipment (PPE) where it allows to scan a lot of ceiling or wall area and duct work from ground with its telephoto and/or wide-angle lens.
