Condition Monitoring for Sugar Production
Reliable Operations Through Condition Monitoring
Sugar is in virtually everything we consume, including alternative fuels in many parts of the world. It can take up to 18 months for new cane stalks to be ready for harvest, and harvesting is often done now by machines on large plantations. Processing and packaging often occur very close to the harvest location to prevent the harvested cane or beets from rotting.
Harvesting also typically occurs September to February, requiring the factories to be extremely reliable during this critical season. Consequently, a sugar refinery’s production reliance upon its machinery has never been more important. Downtime is ever more expensive, and Uptime ever more valuable. As an operator how can you know if you can push your machinery to its design capacity and beyond while remaining safe and maximizing the balance between useful life and capacity?
Unreliable assets have enormous consequences. What if your assets could consistently operate at or above their rated capacities for a greater percentage of total hours each year, all while spending less money on maintenance? That’s exactly what today’s best companies have discovered how to do.
