automotive plant confirmed HUge saving due to Meerkat!
One UK automotive plant has confirmed a €316,000 saving in just six months by installing a Meerkat Remote Condition Monitoring System in their paint plant.
This site specified a system to monitor vibration, temperature and current on their paint plant air handing units. Typically a paint plants can suffer fan failures due to a number of reasons. One of those is paint build-up on the fan impellor. The build-up of paint can cause excessive vibration on the fan due to imbalance and if left alone, would eventually cause a failure on the direct drive motor. Meerkat detected changes and alerted the maintenance teams so they could take action to prevent in-service failures.
