As the UK water industry continues to adapt to a TOTEX model there is an ambition to understand the health of assets in real-time to optimise systems, plan maintenance and better inform future designs. The need for data on asset condition, heath, performance and efficiency creates a need for sensors and systems to provide the data and information to the right people at the right time.
A paradigm shift from reactive or time based maintenance to condition based maintenance requires sensors and systems to drive proactive interventions and improve OEE. Many methods are available on-line and off-line for monitoring assets of varying criticality such as vibration monitoring, acoustics, thermography, motor current signature analysis and tribology to name but a few. As a strategy matures the implementation of the relevant technology is key to ensure engineers can diagnose a problem once identified.
The event will focus on:
Current practices – Introduce current technologies and approaches used within and outside the UK water sector.
Emerging technology – Provide an inside into sensor and system development.
Disruption – Touch on the growing impact of disruptive themes within the condition monitoring space such as IoT, AI, machine learning, cloud computing and big data.
With an optional tour of the Manufacturing Technology Centre – places are limited and must be booked in advance at the time of registration!
