Work Carried Out By CCI.
Vibration monitoring equipment fitted to separators, established data base, savings realized in first year
ie no need to change out mail bearings on an annual basis as lodged vibration data indicated health units.
Any Dairy process would benefit from this form of analysis, its an absolute proactivity against sudden and unexpected breakdown
costing the company thousands in production loss.
Cost Savings Benefits
Cost to install accelerometers and controllers amounted to €3900, a typical cost on an annual basis to change out the main bearing and seal on one separator amounted to approx €10,000 a very significant saving, not to mention loss of production if there was sudden and unexpected bearing failure.
