Condition Based Monitoring

Condition Based Monitoring (CbM) can be classed as part of a preventative maintenance process where the condition and state of factory manufacturing and processing equipment is monitored for early signs of impending failure.

The monitoring process is carried out with regards to the detection of components and assemblies overheating and producing excessive vibration.

Equipment and items of machinery can be monitored using sophisticated instrumentation such as vibration analysis equipment, thermal imaging, or the human senses. Where items of instrumentation is used actual limits of machinery components condition can be applied to activate and trigger maintenance and repair activity.

Condition Monitoring (CM), Predictive Maintenance (PdM), and Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) are other terms used to describe this works process.

Condition Monitoring and (Condition Based Monitoring) is an effective form of “predictive maintenance” where engineering maintenance staff monitor the condition of specific areas of machinery, plant and equipment. This can be done automatically with the use of specialist instrumentation such as machinery vibration analysis and thermal imaging equipment, alternatively it can be done manually.

In automatic CBM when any monitored and predefined condition limit is exceeded, a signal or output is turned on. This output can be sent directly to a CMMS so that a work order is generated automatically. This is particularly suited to continuous process plants where machinery plant failure and production downtime can be extremely costly.
