At ERIKS we understand the importance of the surveillance, protection and healthcare of your key assets, and condition monitoring plays a vital role. Taking the step from reactive to predictive maintenance boasts multiple benefits for your site – reduced downtime and increased productivity levels just the tip of the iceberg.

With many different levels of condition monitoring available, you need to ensure you have the right solution tailored to your site, dependant on the criticality of your assets.

ERIKS has a plethora of knowledge when it comes to condition monitoring, and we have different solutions to suit an array of customers.

When choosing the right level of condition monitoring, the criticality of an asset must be correlated against the amount of time it would take for the asset to fail, with more critical assets better suited to higher-end condition monitoring solutions.

Entry level systems can indicate trends and set off alarms when something is wrong with an asset, sending out a text message or email warning, which is a cost effective solution that provides less critical machines with the correct level of warning and protection.

More advanced systems, such as the ERIKS eConnect, administers continual readings with trend identification and alarms. It also provides you with accurate asset performance data, safe shutdowns, plus diagnostic and prognostic evaluation when linked to the ERIKS Know-How Cloud – helping to optimise asset performance and protection.

The data collated from a condition monitoring system can be useful for many parts of a business, not just the Maintenance Engineer. For example, it allows the Finance Department to understand the running and repair costs of a business’ assets; it aids the Plant Manager in production and maintenance scheduling; and it allows engineers to retrieve statistics and remoter supervision.

Call 0121 508 6000 to discuss our Condition Monitoring service, and how it can assist your business and protect your assets.
