Musk uses Condition Monitoring techniques to help determine the condition of in-service equipment in order to allow you to conveniently schedule remedial tasks and prevent unexpected breakdowns.
By knowing which equipment needs remedial maintenance, you can better plan the work and what would have been unscheduled stops are transformed to shorter and less frequent planned stops, thus increasing asset availability. Other benefits include increased equipment life, improved Plant safety, less incidents with negative impact on the environment and an optimised spare parts stockholding.
The Condition Monitoring techniques offered by Musk include Vibration Analysis, Thermography, Ultrasound (Acoustic) and Oil Sampling. We have a dedicated team of reliability engineers skilled in conducting Condition Monitoring and our mainstream engineers are provided with training to ensure they recognise when the introduction of these predictive maintenance techniques will provide benefit to you.
Condition Monitoring is an important element of Musk’s Asset Care Strategy and is used in our Engineering Compliance Work Packages.
