Solutions that boost critical assets availability and utilisation

Are you on the lookout for solutions that boost the availability and utilisation of the critical assets on your aggregates processing plant?

Keeping critical plant assets running and available is fundamental to a plant operating at optimum efficiency and achieving required production levels. Predictive maintenance is the digital, intelligent approach to maintenance as it uses analytics based on diagnostic data from each asset to predict when assets require maintenance or indeed are about to fail. Armed with this knowledge asset maintenance can be planned around production schedules to optimise both availability and utilisation and avoid unnecessary maintenance shutdowns. Mitsubishi Electric’s proven, robust automation solutions enable you to realise advanced condition monitoring and predictive maintenance strategies to help you drive the visibility, accessibility and reliability of your critical assets, ensuring that these assets achieve optimum availability and utilisation.

Looking to increase reliability and performance at your plant?

Smart asset monitoring solutions offer a rock-solid approach to optimised maintenance and productivity. The aggregates industry is characterised by harsh operating conditions and the need to avoid downtime at all costs. Keeping critical plant assets running and available when required is fundamental to a plant operating at optimum efficiency and achieving required production levels. By implementing solutions that increase uptime and visibility of the status of critical plant assets it is possible to optimise the reliability of the plant as a whole.

Challenge

Fact. Relying on reactive maintenance costs money and time.

The aggregates production process consists of plant assets such as conveyors, crushers, pumps and fans. Losing any of these assets can have a catastrophic effect on plant production and therefore regular maintenance of these assets is essential. Asset performance has two parameters to consider which are asset utilisation and asset availability. In simple terms, availability is the ratio of the actual asset run time compared to the planned run time for that asset. Utilisation is the proportion of time the asset is used, which is an indicator of how production runs are planned.

Assets need to be available to run when you need them so there is a need to utilise your assets to maximise efficiency and manage our energy costs.Traditionally, across many production facilities, preventative maintenance regimes have been deployed, which involve scheduled periodic shutdowns to carry out plant maintenance. Essentially this strategy is ok as it has a positive effect on availability as regular maintenance is carried out. However, it has a negative effect on utilisation as the whole or part of the plant is shutdown regardless of whether all the assets need maintenance or not.

Solution

The adoption of robust technologies with advanced diagnostics, providing predictive maintenance functions can positively effect both asset availability and utilisation, which in turn improves plant performance and efficiency.Predictive maintenance is the digital, intelligent approach to maintenance as it uses analytics based on diagnostic data from each asset to predict when assets require maintenance or indeed are about to fail. Armed with this knowledge asset maintenance can be planned around production schedules to optimise both availability and utilisation and avoid unnecessary maintenance shutdowns.

Condition based monitoring solutions such as Mitsubishi Electric’s Smart Condition Monitoring solution provide diagnostic data and early fault detection of rotating machinery, ideal for large motors and drive trains of critical assets. The solution delivers accurate predictive data of asset condition, required maintenance intervals and ultimately asset life.Diagnostic data needs to be gathered from each asset, analysis then carried out and the predictive maintenance overall picture can be built and visualised.

Mitsubishi Electric’s ICONICS GENESIS64 software suite provides the power to rationalise this data and produce predictive maintenance and plant performance information in the form of monitor screens, charts and reports, which can apply to the whole plant, individual production areas or individual assets.

Understanding production performance, having early detection of asset failure and achieving optimised availability and utilisation of plant assets will reduce operating costs and drive-up productivity.

Cyber Security and Operational Technology (OT)

The move towards digitalisation and reliance on data driven decisions coupled with an increase in cyber related crime means that Cyber Security has become extremely important in our emerging digital world.

Mitsubishi Electric explores how this impacts the OT sector around industrial automation and control systems in terms of the standards and best practises for the key stake holders including asset owners, systems integrators and product suppliers.

Predictive Maintenance: The “low hanging fruit” of the industrial digitalisation process

Predictive and prescriptive maintenance have become key deliverables of the digitalisation process in industrial automation and control.

Advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) combined with the ability to collect large quantities of data from disparate and remote plant assets means that generation of analytics around predictive maintenance has become much easier to achieve.

Mitsubishi Electric will discuss the growth in capability of predictive maintenance solutions that deliver real value to the asset owner, drawing on their wealth of expertise and automation offerings in this area.

Who knows about the new G5-5 harmonic legislation?

Join us as we look at the new standard, how it differs from G5-4 and how it affects new / existing installations.

Are you aware that G5-5 is a site standard and not a product standard? and as little as 30Kw of none linear load could make your entire site none compliant. Not only will be covering the standard itself, but what services and products we can offer to make your site compliant.

Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)

Industry 4.0 has moved beyond the novelty stage and has become a strategic focus for many companies. While IIoT offers an effective technology platform for Industry 4.0 applications, its foundation is a suitable network with the necessary level of determinism to share all data generated by a process. This transparency depends on convergence, i.e. the ability to combine multiple types of traffic on a single network, which in turn depends on determinism.
The technology that automation is moving towards to address this need for convergence is Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN).

Find out what we know and why we believe TSN should be part of your company's strategy today.
