Equipment Condition Monitoring
XpertRule deploy their Equipment Condition Monitoring solution at Hosokawa toll processing facility
XpertRule have successfully deployed their Condition Monitoring solution at the Hosokawa Micron Powders toll processing facility in Runcorn, UK. The Runcorn processing facility provides a specialist service to manufacturers of food, chemical, mineral, plastic and metal materials and helps them overcome temporary capacity shortages and produce niche products that would be out of the scope of normal processing activities.
The XpertRule Condition Monitoring solution was retrofitted to an existing powder milling plant and monitors data 24/7 from key sensors on the processing equipment with the aim of detecting patterns in the data which indicate a developing problem that may impact production. The system provides users with a combination of advanced user displays running on iOS and Android Mobile devices as well as a Cloud based production monitoring and reporting system which together provide a complete condition monitoring solution. The system provides remote access to plant operating data for Hosokawa site personnel.
Iain Crosley the Managing Director of Hosokawa Micron in the UK said ‘We use our toll processing facility at Runcorn to showcase the latest technologies for improving production from Hosokawa equipment. The expected customer benefits from improved remote condition monitoring and support are faster resolution of problems, decreased equipment down time and more efficient operation of the plant and equipment. We have obtained the exclusive rights to deliver the XpertRule Condition Monitoring solution to the particle processing sector and we are pleased to be able to offer this solution to our world-wide customers to install on their own equipment’.
