TitleMonitoring System
Project id.101
Reference sectorMECHATRONICS
IP Protection LevelThe present system integrates subsystem covered by international IPC World patent n° WO2013/005129, US14L32896
Description of the innovation projectIPC Monitoring system are focused to continuous monitoring and continuous evaluation of the machine performance based on the comparison to performance expected as per OEM. This quantitative performance evaluation approach allows to implement predictive maintenance strategies optimizing schedules of interventions for maximum production and minimum costs. IPC monitoring system stores in the computer memory the OEM/Tested reference performance. These design/reference data are used as input to machine models embedded in the system and allow to obtain a valid prediction of performance expected in the actual operative condition.
State of dev.Prototype
Industrial applicationProcess industry (chemical, petrolchimical, power generation)
Market segmentMonitoring system of turbomachinery. Monitoring System has a value between 80.000 and 120.000 euro and potential economic return of 200.000 per year.
Advantage factorIPC Monitoring systems are focused to continuous monitoring and a continuous evaluation of the machine performance based on the comparison to Performance expected as per OEM. New advanced monitoring system embeds sophisticated algorithms for machinery modeling along with hydraulic or thermodynamic calculations based on most recent theories. IPC monitoring systems have been designed to achieve maximum machinery availability, minimum downtimes and optimization of maintenance activities.
Commercial challengeProposed system and solution may be installed on large number of process plants on new installation and existing plants. The owners of this solution rights will gain a leading position in the specific industry market sector.
