Plant Condition Based Maintenance

 

Condition Monitoring Programme Overview

 

Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) is a branch of Condition Monitoring where the condition of machines (machine health) is periodically or continuously inspected without disturbing with its operation. MDT Q2 offers a detail dynamic design solution, fully equip with troubleshooting equipment and experts in the area of engineering dynamics, as a comprehensive dynamic solutions to our client. MDT-Q2 also offers engineering services in the fields of Reliability Engineering and Mechanical Engineering as well as a variety of educational services. A vibration monitoring program review and enhancement exercise was performed recently in a petrochemical plant in Gebeng, Kuantan that reflects in the KPi’s trending achieving up to 97% of scheduled machine to be monitored, reducing machines with alarm status significantly as well as eliminating unplanned machine breakdowns for the period of 6 months. In short, more machines were consistently monitored while improving in machines availability and reliability.

MDT Q2 personnel implements systematic measurement techniques such as overall vibration levels, Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) analysis, Envelope analysis for rolling element bearing, and Trending analysis. Data are analyzed and trended to observe any significant changes from the previous measurement. Severity of each machine is either classified based on International Standard (ISO 10816, 2372) or the VDI 2056 standard, Proven Method 4th edition, manufacturer specification, or by comparison with identical machines. After completing data acquisition of all machines, MDT Q2 personnel shall brief Clients on the condition of the machines. Highlight shall be given to those machines that exceed the allowable vibration limit.
