A warehouse was paying a consulting service to come visit their facility once a month to take vibration data points on the compressor units. This method yielded inconsistent data resulting in unnecessary maintenance work done to the machinery. As a result of their inconsistent data collection, the warehouse acquired the SMARTdiagnostics Machine Condition Monitoring System, which enabled the warehouse to easily install sensors and monitor their compressors for several days each month.
The system consisted of software, a Collection Server, two Primary Receiver Nodes, and 15 total Vibration Sensor Nodes. The software allowed frequency bands to be created in order to isolate areas to track and the warehouse entered “warning” and “alarm” levels so they can now be informed of any increasing vibration levels. Compared to the two minute measurements of the consulting service, the warehouse is able to monitor their machines for 56 running hours per month so they get better diagnostic information and spend less time doing unnecessary maintenance.
“Besides the fact that they have a good product that is constantly improving, the thing that really sets KCF apart is their monitoring services and customer support. Unlike other companies, KCF doesn’t just sell a product and walk away. They work with you to monitor your machinery.”
