Metso has integrated machinery condition analysis technology called DNAmachineAssessor into its metsoDNA CR automation system. Process operators and maintenance staff now have first-hand access to machine vibration data and mechanical component condition analysis through the same user interface which is used to measure and control the process and product quality.

Having one common view for all users helps operators and maintenance personnel work together collaboratively to detect and solve developing mechanical problems quickly and effectively. Operators can take immediate action to lessen vibrations, avoid failures, and alert maintenance personnel to severe problems or those which are just starting to develop.

With all process and machinery condition information consolidated in one system, machinery vibrations can be related to the process conditions, allowing more effective problem solving capability. Data links or manual data collection from different systems is no longer required. Metso Automation 514-335-5426, www.metso.com/automation
