Downtime can cost Pet Food Plants thousands of dollars in lost production. Predictive and Preventative Maintenance can minimize the interruption and costs associated with unplanned maintenance and machine failure.
Predictive maintenance is achieved using sensors on electro-mechanical equipment. Connecting these sensors to your control system through Ethernet communication creates an intranet on your factory floor, or Smart Factory.
Data & Sensors
The data that these sensors provide to the control system is monitored to identify problems and send alarms, notifying that a measured condition, such as temperature, moisture, pressure, and vibration, is trending outside a preset boundary condition. Allowing you to perform maintenance before a failure takes place.
This concept of monitoring equipment through an intranet on your factory floor or Smart Factory is called the Internet of Things (IoT).
By utilizing IoT, sensors and transactional data – a comprehensive preventative maintenance program can be tailored for your facility, producing the required triggers to maintain your plant and prevent costly unscheduled downtime.
The result is the ability to predict maintenance and prevent downtime. Allowing you to maintain worry-free productivity and product quality throughout your entire process.
