Case Study: Asset Condition Management Using Ultrasound Remote Monitoring

Maureen Gribble, UE Systems


Airborne and structure-borne ultrasound technology has become a major player in predictive and preventative maintenance. Ultrasound has been proven and accepted by maintenance and reliability professionals globally across many industry and manufacturing sectors. With the advancements in technology and software, potential electrical and mechanical failures can be diagnosed early; therefore, allowing for more time to plan, schedule, kit, and perform work that would have otherwise been more reactive. Using ultrasound for condition monitoring impacts costs, increases productivity and best of all improves safety. This presentation will focus on remote continuous monitoring applications using ultrasound. In a time where we are seeing more and more guarding and shielding of assets remote sensors are a critical tool to help you continue to safely monitor your assets. Your equipment is talking to you – are you listening?
