Forecasting failures in industrial rotating equipment Industrial seminar
With Will Boulton, Faraday Predictive (formerly Artesis)
Forecasting failures in industrial rotating equipment
Rotating equipment (such as pumps, fans, conveyors) contribute to the smooth running of modern life, and failures of this equipment, or of the driving electric motor, is hugely disruptive for industry and infrastructure. Faraday Predictive monitors the voltage and current drawn by an electric motor, and through an analysis of frequencies in these waveforms, tries to predict failures of the driven equipment (thereby minimising disruption). In this talk I’ll present some simple equipment problems which we’ve been able to solve and the methods we use to do it, as well as an introduction to the much larger body of unknown faults which are seemingly impossible to spot.
