Remote Monitoring of Rotating Equipment Using Cloud

Remote Monitoring of Rotating Equipment Using Cloud

Abstract

Heavy rotating equipment like compressors, turbines and pumps are more susceptible to mechanical failure than non-rotating equipment. Periodic health monitoring of rotating equipment is necessary to ensure productivity and to extend longevity. Remote health monitoring of rotating equipment by harnessing cloud computing can appreciably reduce the cost. In fact, it offers a dual benefit – remote monitoring compared to monitoring by qualified staff on-premise, and second, use of the cloud to reduce IT overhead. This article describes the benefits to end users of using cloud for remote monitoring of their assets. 

Excerpts from the Paper
In the process industry, most critical rotating equipment like turbines and compressors are maintained by dedicated systems and by onpremise specialists. In a few safety-critical cases, the systems are made hardware redundant. The  health monitoring equipment, too, requires periodic maintenance and software/hardware upgrades. This makes health monitoring of rotating equipment a costly proposition for end users. Only critical equipment is condition monitored  (another term for health monitoring), and by and large, other equipment that is  not monitored  is a frequent source of production loss.
