The tool for hour-to-hour operation
In today’s power and process plants, the functions of maintenance and production personnel are changing and becoming more interrelated. Machine operators are often called upon to make quick decisions to avoid machinery malfunctions or process downtime. Critical problems can be avoided with just-in-time information displayed in a way that is easy to interpret.
Easy access to critical information
Using simple point-and-click operation, operators can access critical machine stability information in very few steps. A flashing component symbol within the process graphic display indicates an alarm condition as it is happening. Only seconds later, the problem is identified. Operators interact with 6S in an intuitive way using the familiar Windows environment.
Proactive instead of reactive
Maintenance activities are becoming more and more proactive. Maintenance specialists use sophisticated vibration analysis tools that indicate the problems of specific pieces of machinery. Problems are detected in their early stages before any harm is done. Downtime is scheduled at the right time for the right reasons and the work needed can be completed during the planned shut-down.
Deep analysis for maintenance experts
For the expert user, more detailed machinery condition information can be analyzed as it is happening or saved and later compared to historical operating conditions. By referring to built-in libraries of machinery components, the expert can identify a specific problem within a gearbox or a sleeve bearing of a turbine.
