Condition Monitoring/Predictive Maintenance

Team establishment of self-managed work teams: a model from the field

Emerald | Team Performance Management | Table of Contents >> 
Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe a model of team establishment that emerged from 64 teams comprised of mid-career working professionals. Design/methodology/approach – A total of 64 similarly configured 18 member teams assembled for work on the same day and, thereafter, worked on similar tasks. A single representative team was observed throughout its process of its formation-establishment-using participant observation and interviews. A case report describing the process was co-constructed afterward. Individuals from remaining teams systematically compared/contrasted their experience with the case report. Qualitative analysis of 874 responses provides the basis for this paper. Findings – Teams formed very differently than expected. A highly dynamic and rapid process was seen. The model suggests interplay between ongoing assessment of the context and organizing for work while norms emerge and work is performed. Research limitations/implications – Individual comparisons/contrasts with the case report, unlike the case report itself, were not the result of prolonged engagement, persistent observation, triangulation, and co-construction processes. The research focus was on team development; implications for performance are not addressed. Practical implications – Leaders can influence the speed of establishment through intentionality during the establishment phase. The rapid establishment process that emerged here may have application across a wider range of work settings—especially where members are experienced in working collaboratively. Originality/value – The model of team establishment has likely application in other settings.?The study also suggests the valuable insights that study informants can contribute to research.

Advanced Rotorbar Analysis – Cage Damage vs. Porosity

pdf-fig1Manufactured vs. Die-Cast Rotors
Squirrel Cage Induction Motors are of either a manufactured, or a die-cast design. Larger motors (above 300 to 500hp) will tend to be of the manufactured kind, being produced by inserting the rotorbars into the rotor slots first, and then connecting the bars to the end-rings. Copper is the most common material for such squirrel cages, but they can also be made of Aluminum, or even Brass in the case of the outer cage of a Dual-Cage rotor design. The squirrel cage of die-cast motors is typically aluminum, and in a few cases made of copper. Fig. 1 shows an example of a manufactured rotor and a die-cast rotor.

ARTESIS MAKES WAVES WITH WESSEX WATER

art-feb-2013Artesis has recently proved to regional water and sewerage treatment business Wessex Water, its ability to diagnose equipment problems and anomalies accurately and reliably, after a pump failure occurred at one of the company’s pumping station near Yeovil, within days of the date predicted by the Artesis team.

Details of the application

Wessex Water, which serves areas within the South West of England, invested in the new maintenance technology from Artesis to optimize the effi ciency and performance of its pumping equipment.

MONITORING WITH BP SHIPPING

art-feb-2013-2Artesis has completed an installation trial of its Motor Condition Monitoring (MCM) technology for BP Shipping, the global centre of marine expertise for the BP Group; fitting two MCM units to two seawater pumps aboard a LNG carrier.

Aim

“As with all new technology in the marketplace there is a degree of scepticism when embarking on an initial R&D and trial period. To prove a useful and worthwhile tool we needed to determine whether the MCM unit could accurately detect a fault prior to catastrophic failure and ultimately, provide us with a non-intrusive monitoring process with cost saving benefi ts,” said Mark Pellow, engineering superintendent for BP Shipping.

In addition, the trial aimed to validate the Artesis condition monitoring application technique when compared to the more traditional technique of vibration monitoring.

BP Shipping – Worldwide Fleet With over 50 ships in its worldwide fleet, BP Shipping is very much aware of the benefi ts of condition monitoring and runs a successful global initiative, adopting CM technologies and programmes throughout its fl eet. MCM has the ability to monitor equipment that is currently outside of the BP CM programme, where kit may be inaccessible or in a hazardous location.

Real-time Condition Monitoring For Blowers And Compressors

Aerzen USA insights and guidance for blower, compressor and vacuum pump applications >> 

The Aerzen iAir Remote Monitoring System (RMS) is a comprehensive monitor that can be attached to any blower or compressor to capture real-time activities and conditions. Based on industrial cellular technology, the RMS can function in any location with cellphone coverage for both indoor and outdoor applications. The system is easily installed and linked directly to your cell phone for up-to-the-minute condition reports and notifications. This allows for peace of mind and troubleshooting when you are not accessible to the equipment.

Perfect for independent installations with no on-site maintenance personnel.List of applications:
 Remote terminals for Cement processing
Critical blower or compressor installations
High value equipment performance monitoring
Root cause analysis & system

 Note: Unit is not rated for use in hazardous zones.

Monitor operational data and parameters:
Inlet & discharge pressure/ temperatures
Oil level, pressure & temperatures
System pressure, RPM & overall vibration
Electric load and more

Equipment monitoring and full reporting analysis from any location

 The iAir Remote System reviews the actual usage of the equipment and sends alerts and reminders via text or email directly to the user. Log on anytime for a real-time report to make maintenance and emergencies more manageable.
