Application Center for Advanced Monitoring Solutions
The Application Center is dedicated to providing technical solutions for machinery condition assessment through the application of advanced fluid measurement and analysis technologies.
We specialize in the specific technological areas of:
- On-line wear debris sensor monitoring for real-time detection and monitoring of gear & bearing damage
- Filter debris analysis using x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy for machinery wear debris analysis and diagnostics
- Fluid condition and contamination monitoring for oil analysis using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy
- Data integration and program automation for maintenance decision support. This includes data mining, limits assessment, fault signature development and prognostics.
These condition based maintenance (CBM) technologies have been successfully applied to critical machinery in the aviation, defense, power generation, marine, and transportation industries.
The Application Center staff is a highly trained and experienced team of engineers, scientists, knowledge experts, and technologists who are specialists in oil debris and fluid condition monitoring technologies and their application to machinery diagnostics and prognostics. We have a wealth of experience with aircraft engines, gearboxes, diesel engines, gas turbine engines, locomotives, wind turbines, marine equipment, hydraulic systems, and many other types of equipment. We deliver solutions to quickly and correctly assess equipment condition and remaining useful life, to avoid machinery failure and unplanned downtime, and to reduce the ownership costs of critical machinery assets.
