Call for papers: SWIG workshop on Instrumentation & Asset Management, 28 Sept

February 16th, 2022

As the UK water industry continues to migrate from the more traditional CAPEX/OPEX models to an integrated TOTEX model there is an ambition to understand the health of assets in real-time to optimize 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 change in mindset and application from reactive or time based maintenance to condition based maintenance requires sensors and systems to drive proactive interventions and improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). Many methods are available online 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.

Call for papers: ‘Instrumentation and Asset Management’ – We are seeking presentations from water companies, suppliers and researchers. Please send an abstract (<100 words) to rosa.richards@swig.org.uk by 11 March 2022.
