In our earlier blogs I explained why motors fail and how condition monitoring can help preserve the health of motors and motor-driven equipment. By continuously tracking the health of your motors, condition monitoring enables you to maximize your capital investments in your motor-driven...
In an earlier blog I explained the condition monitoring process and how it can help preserve the health of your motors and motor-driven equipment. In this post we focus on energy-based condition monitoring and its advantages over other condition monitoring techniques.
In an earlier blog, we listed the five reasons why motors fail. Now that we understand how motors fail, let’s talk about how we can use this information to preserve the health of your motors and motor-driven equipment.
Motors fail — it's a fact of life that's nearly as certain as death and taxes.
But why do motors fail?
The first step towards reliability-centered maintenance includes identifying and understanding the reasons why motors fail. Though age is commonly considered the primary reason for asset...
The industrial, or manufacturing, sector consumes 8.86 trillion kWh (41%) of the 21.6 kWh of electricity generated globally – more than any other sector. Yet, equipment inefficiencies, thermal and mechanical losses, and poor process designs squander up to 30% of the energy that industry...
Since 1990, 175 thousand people have moved to Des Moines, Iowa, increasing its population by 40%.
As Des Moines Water Works' distribution system grew to accommodate these new residents, so did its need for more accurate data, better asset visibility, and increased reliability. Its existing,...

In our first blog post, we demonstrated how energy efficiency improves your bottom line. Our second blog post described why tasking your lean team with obtaining energy efficiency maximizes your savings.
As mentioned in our previous blog, energy efficiency measures improve your bottom line.
Incorporating energy efficiency into your lean program makes a lot of sense. Here’s why adding energy efficiency to your lean department’s responsibilities will maximize your energy savings:
McKinsey reports that up to five-sixths of the potential energy savings remains untapped. This means that industrial energy efficiency measures can help companies reduce their energy expenses by up to 32% which all goes straight to the bottom line.
