QUARTZELEC has signed a partnership agreement with automated AI-based predictive maintenance solutions specialist NanoPrecise. Complementing its LIFEVIEW suite of partial discharge (PD) monitoring solutions and the popular Motion Amplification surveys, the NanoPrecise range of wireless, non-intrusive and scalable technologies will further enhance the company's market and machine monitoring presence in the global industry and infrastructure markets.

NanoPrecise offers an AI + IoT based analytics approach using Machine Doctor sensors & Rotation LF software that diagnoses machine health by recording the real-time RPM, sound, vibration, temperature, humidity, magnetic flux, and other key parameters to detect anomalies in near real-time, to predict the Remaining Useful Life (RUL) of machine components. The system empowers users/ operators to carefully manage operational decisions that may cause major damage or unplanned downtime.

"Asset breakdowns can happen without warning, and the challenge has always been to spot the signs early enough to schedule repairs," said Paul Oliver, Business Manager of Quartzelec's Aberdeen-based operations. "LIFEVIEW is a key component in reducing total cost of ownership over the lifetime of a machine and an integral element of any reliability centred maintenance (RCM) and repair strategy. By focusing on early detection solutions, our customers can cost-effectively implement preventative maintenance and avoid costly machine failures. Having the luxury of further enhancing our offering to include additional monitoring solutions that complement our PD and wider condition monitoring solutions should create a formidable, compelling, and cost-effective package of solutions."
