Introducing VitalyX†, the revolutionary digital lubrication oil monitoring system from Bently Nevada, in partnership with Shell. Lubrication oil is not only the lifeblood of your machines, but it is a key indicator of potentially unseen issues which can cause reduced asset performance, or catastrophic loss of asset.
VitalyX combines world class sensing technologies with unmatched data science, edge computing and cloud connectivity capabilities, along with a deep domain knowledge of machines and heritage in condition-based monitoring.
Current lubrication oil monitoring practices involve manual sampling and laboratory testing, which can be prone to human error and delays of multiple weeks, leaving you and your equipment vulnerable to failure or a drop in performance.
VitalyX works by deploying sensors to critical assets which collect key information about the lubrication oil and machine in real-time. The VitalyX edge computer then sends that data to the cloud where proprietary algorithms and machine learning capabilities convert the lubricant data into alerts/alarms, meaningful insights, and recommendations for your asset.
VitalyX measures up to 15 parameters of lubrication oil, and combines them to give you a detailed picture of your assets health. All parameters have been proven to be comparable to laboratory results, in accordance with relevant ASTM specifications.
By bringing together the number 1 lubricant provider in the world with the number 1 condition-based monitoring provider in the world, VitalyX is a powerful tool that can ensure the uptime, performance and optimization of your fleet
With over 60 years of experience in condition-based monitoring, 400,000 connected machines and over 500 field service engineers deployed globally, Bently Nevada understands what it takes to protect your critical assets.
Added to this, by leveraging Shell’s lubrication oil expertise, where they have been the number 1 provider of finished lubricants for 14 consecutive years, their in-depth machine health knowledge and data science capability, VitalyX can monitor your fleet 24/7 ensuring optimal performance and safety.
