The IIot Motor Diagnostic System – Cracked Rotor Bar Defect
Interrupted production can be costly. Loss of production hours, output as well as the cost to repair mechanical faults or major machine breakdowns can severely impact production and maintenance budgets.
The IIot Motor Diagnostic System allows plant owners to prevent unplanned mechanical breakdowns through fault detection alerts enabling maintenance teams to act proactively.
The IIot Motor Diagnostic System installed at an international rubber and tyre manufacturer on a rubber-mixing mill saved the company many hours of unscheduled downtime and hundreds of thousands in production revenue.
The Roll Milling Machine applies a mechanical process to blend the ingredients into a homogeneous substance. Internal mixers fitted with two counter-rotating rotors in a large housing shear the rubber charge along with the additives.
The IIot Motor Diagnostic System identified an existing Coupling/Bearing problem in the Roll Milling Machine. The system also flagged an immediate alert related to the Rotor Bar parameter.
The trend visibly reflects how the Rotor Bar error advanced. Vibration measurements verified the presence of broken rotor bars, already identified by The IIot Motor Diagnostic System.
The IIot Motor Diagnostic System in this instance demonstrated its ability to detect developing Rotor Bar faults, alerting the maintenance team. The necessary predictive and preventative maintenance actions were taken, resulting in no production loss recorded.
Can you imagine the impact on the production and maintenance budget if this fault were not detected?
