A single-source supply, turnkey solution was needed to reduce or eliminate costly unplanned maintenance in an industry where seconds count.
JET Engineering partnered with a manufacturer of oil field equipment to develop a truly unique Acoustic Emissivity (AE) data acquisition system. AE data is monitored to predict maintenance requirements of critical remote system components. The remote location required the use of a cellular VPN for real time monitoring and easy data access.
Features included Acoustic Emissivity monitoring, custom signal conditioning for up to 20 channels of AE data, cellular VPN for real-time remote access, and monitoring on non-acoustic analog and digital signals.
Outcomes included predictive failure of mission-critical system components, real-time monitoring of AE data in inaccessible locations, and scheduled maintenance of vital equipment to reduce unplanned downtime.
