To solve the company’s need for predictive maintenance, they turned to Banner’s wireless vibration monitoring solution.
Banner’s vibration machine learning algorithm was used on the DXM wireless gateway to baseline and automatically set alert thresholds for each of the three sensors.
After three months of consistent vibration levels, workers observed a clear rise in vibration levels on one of the pillow block bearings that was being monitored. Upon replacement and inspection of the disassembled bearing, the technician saw spalling on the inner race of the bearing.
After the new bearing was installed, a new vibration baseline and alerts were generated by the machine learning algorithm for ongoing monitoring of the air handling system shown below.
By identifying the mechanical failure early, the scheduled replacement prevented an emergency visit that would have cost two to three times the normal price of maintenance. Without it, there may have been additional damage to the air handling system, causing required workers to stay out of the office until a solution was found, and resulting in added costs and reduced worker production.
