Honeywell launches new wireless monitoring product
Firm claims system will save companies $20,000 per asset per year.
Houston-based services firm Honeywell today announced the launch of a cost-effective means to monitor essential and critical rotating plant assets wirelessly and in real time.
The firm claims it's monitoring technology will save customers an average of $20,000 per asset, per year through improved uptime and reduced maintenance and repair costs.
Industrial plants typically have thousands of rotating assets which, if not monitored frequently, can fail with little or no advanced warning due to the constant stresses placed on them.
Honeywell’s solution consists of a new wireless vibration monitor and associated online monitoring software, allowing users at all levels of plant operations to collaborate effectively in order to determine how to address abnormal equipment condition and plan maintenance while assuring production dependability.
“Our OneWireless Rotating Equipment Solution puts together the products and services that can really help companies that rely on rotating assets as an integral part of their day-to-day plant operations,” said Raymond Rogowski, wireless business leader, Honeywell Process Solutions. “When asset failure is simply not an option, our system can be used as part of a wider OneWireless plant network to make sure that early warning signs are not missed and appropriate action is taken.”
