The AD-HOC solution includes: comprehensive service, personalised study by fleet, analysis of samples, recommendations for product replacement, proposals for product application, shift + flushing, follow-up and analysis. The advantages of comprehensive service improve the useful life of assets, increase energy efficiency and optimise costs.
The Condition Monitoring System, INGESYS CMS was also presented which determines machine’s status, anticipating the appearance of functional anomalies by analysing vibrations, temperature, oil status among other aspects. Its benefits include early detection of upcoming damages, maintenance program optimisation, downtime reduction, spare parts savings and plant lifetime extension.
