Implementing continuous condition monitoring need not be as complex or as expensive as you might think. Andy Anthony, Managing Director of Monitran, explains why.
Monitoring the condition of machinery is a practical means of protecting plant and equipment against unexpected failure; as changes in vibration levels or temperature often provide the earliest indication that maintenance is necessary.

Operated by the Environment Agency, the Thames Barrier is London’s main defence against flooding. It became operational in 1982 and protects parts of the city against abnormally high tides and tidal/storm surges. Understandably, the barrier needs to be maintained to ensure it can protect the capital when needed. Indeed, during its history about a third of its 400 plus closures have been necessary, the rest being for maintenance purposes.
