The best way to avoid machinery failures is to know they’re coming. This is precisely what condition monitoring enables. Condition monitoring is the process of determining the condition of machinery while in operation. The three major steps in a condition monitoring system are data acquisition, data processing, and data assessment for maintenance decision-making and fault diagnostics and prediction.

Successfully implementing a condition monitoring programme enables the repair of problem components prior to failure. This not only helps reduce the possibility of catastrophic failure, but also allows you to order parts in advance, schedule manpower, and plan other repairs during the downtime.
