It can be easy to confuse it with condition monitoring but it differs in the way that condition monitoring tends to focus more on the alerting of the here and now state of the machine, identifying failure as it is happening. It’s great when you know what you’re looking for but often the failures that catch you out and lead to downtime are things that you never expected to see – your condition monitoring system then becomes next to useless.

but the grave prospect of production downtime.
“On the 25th of November, the Directive 2015/2193 was published “on the limitation of emissions of certain pollutants into the air from medium combustion plants.” It will pass into UK Law on the 19th of December 2017.
