Profit In­crease with IfTA Sys­tems

Pro­cess Op­tim­iz­a­tion

The goal: A smooth, error-free pro­cess flow.

The mo­bile meas­ure­ment sys­tem IfTA Dyn­aMaster is ready-to-use for meas­ure­ments, long-term mon­it­or­ing and ana­lys­is. Thus, er­rors and sources of er­rors can be quickly found and elim­in­ated with the IfTA Dyn­aMaster.

In­creased sys­tem avail­ab­il­ity and safety

The goal: The ma­chine should run autonom­ously and without any in­ter­rup­tions as far as pos­sible.

The IfTA Ar­gusOMDS mon­it­or­ing sys­tem su­per­vises sys­tems autonom­ously and re­li­ably 24/7, even over many years. The sys­tem gives warn­ings as soon as thresholds are ex­ceeded. The con­trol­ler can then auto­mat­ic­ally ini­ti­ate sens­ible meas­ures, such as a pro­tect­ive shut­down, so that ma­chine dam­age is avoided.

Par­tic­u­larly in the gas tur­bine sec­tor, the IfTA PreCurs­or early warn­ing sys­tem provides an in­creased re­ac­tion time.

En­ergy ef­fi­ciency

The goal: Fewer emis­sions - with the same or bet­ter per­form­ance.

Through long-term mon­it­or­ing of ma­chines and by com­par­ing their op­er­at­ing data, valu­able in­form­a­tion can be ob­tained in order to achieve the ideal ef­fi­ciency of a ma­chine/plant. Thanks to the ideal ef­fi­ciency factor, the en­ergy con­sump­tion is lower with the same or even bet­ter per­form­ance.

By using the mo­bile meas­ure­ment sys­tem IfTA Dyn­aMaster in con­junc­tion with the ana­lys­is soft­ware IfTA TrendView­er, large amounts of data can be ana­lyzed and visu­al­ized graph­ic­ally.

Pre­dict­ive Main­ten­ance

The goal: Main­ten­ance should be con­di­tion-ori­ented and pre­dict­able, i.e. com­pon­ents should re­main in place as long as pos­sible in order to make full use of their op­er­at­ing life. Early signs of wear should be de­tec­ted in ad­vance.

The mon­it­or­ing sys­tem IfTA Ar­gusOMDS su­per­vises sys­tems autonom­ously and re­li­ably 24/7, even over years. The sys­tem provides warn­ings in the event of a change in the be­ha­vi­or of the ma­chine. This way, crit­ic­al com­pon­ents can be re­placed in time and in a planned man­ner.

Profit In­crease By Condi­tion Mon­it­or­ing

Condi­tion mon­it­or­ing...

  • ...pre­vents un­sched­uled ma­chine down­times
    Through per­man­ent mon­it­or­ing, dam­age is de­tec­ted early and ex­pens­ive un­sched­uled ma­chine down­time and/or the com­plete fail­ure of com­pon­ents can be pre­ven­ted in ad­vance.
  • ...en­ables pre­dict­ive main­ten­ance (con­di­tion-ori­ented main­ten­ance)
    Con­ven­tion­al main­ten­ance ac­cord­ing cer­tain in­ter­vals often means that com­pon­ents are re­placed pre­vent­ively and their re­main­ing op­er­at­ing time is not used in full. By con­stantly mon­it­or­ing the con­di­tion of com­pon­ents, how­ever, op­er­at­ing life of crit­ic­al sys­tem com­pon­ents can be fully ex­ploited. Ne­ces­sary re­pair meas­ures can be co­ordin­ated with the pro­duc­tion plan. These two factors en­sure con­sid­er­able cost sav­ings.
  • ...en­sures a re­li­able fault­less func­tion of pro­duc­tion plants
    Through con­stant mon­it­or­ing and cor­res­pond­ing ana­lys­is of the re­cor­ded data, con­clu­sions can be made for fur­ther op­tim­iz­a­tion of the pro­duc­tion fa­cil­it­ies. This al­lows the iden­ti­fic­a­tion of pos­sible op­tim­iz­a­tions by per­form­ing a cor­rel­a­tion ana­lys­is of com­pon­ents and thus avoid­ing crit­ic­al vi­bra­tions.

Under­stand­ing Vibra­tions and Work­ing Prof­it­ably

IfTA ana­lys­is, mon­it­or­ing and pro­tec­tion sys­tems can be used to re­duce costs e.g. through pro­cess op­tim­iz­a­tion, fault find­ing, time sav­ing, lower en­ergy costs and op­tim­ized ma­chine util­iz­a­tion. How this can be achieved in con­crete terms nat­ur­ally de­pends on the ob­ject­ives and in­di­vidu­al cir­cum­stances of our cus­tom­ers.

We are happy to sup­port you in fil­ter­ing valu­able in­form­a­tion from your vi­bra­tion data, un­der­stand­ing these in­form­a­tion and being prof­it­able for your com­pany.
