Optimize your Asset Performance Management (APM)

Use predictive maintenance and cloud-based solutions to maximize asset reliability

As process plants age, many are still stuck in reactive maintenance plans rather than proactive strategies. If you want to reduce unplanned shutdowns and start to manage your assets effectively, setting up an adequate maintenance strategy is the right approach. An installed base analysis that will provide full transparency is the first step. Add smart sensors and cloud-based solutions, and you can reach the next level of asset performance with predictive maintenance.

How we can help you reach the next level of asset management

We help optimize your Asset Performance Management by improving your asset knowledge and making sure efforts are directed on instrument maintenance effectively. With our products, services and solutions you can:

  • gain full asset transparency with a detailed installed base analysis report that gives you a complete overview of all your physical assets

  • improve spare parts and obsolescence management with up-to-date asset information

  • move from reactive to predictive asset maintenance with instrumentation that offers self-diagnostic functions

  • take maintenance decisions based on live asset data wherever you are with cloud-based IIoT solutions

Our APM solutions in detail

instrumentation standardization helps to improve asset management

Installed Base Analysis (IBA)

Over time plants are modified, equipment changes, and instruments become obsolete. Without up-to-date information of your installed base, improving maintenance becomes impossible. However, collecting asset data is a labor-intensive process that covers multiple measuring points and instrumentation from several suppliers. Our audit teams will collect and analyze all this information. Based on this report, you can derive data-driven decisions. Our IBA service helps you:

  • save time and money on asset data collection

  • improve your asset management based on a detailed report of critical assets and potential improvements

  • optimize your obsolescence management and simplify standardization of instrumentation

cloud-based applications for improved asset management and predictive maintenance

Cloud-based IIoT solutions

What if you could diagnose and solve an instrument's error code without having to leave the office? What if you knew the health status of each instrument installed in your plant just by checking your smartphone? Our IIoT ecosystem Netilion entails apps and algorithms that turn instrumentation data into actionable information. Take the next step towards a digital plant by:

  • solving unexpected errors with your tablet or smartphone form wherever you are

  • creating digital twins of your physical assets with the Scanner app in less than 60 seconds

  • analysing your digital twins via a live overview of your installed base with our app Netilion Analytics

  • identifying error codes and getting clear advice on the required actions with our app Netilion Health

Heartbeat Technology offers self-diagnostic functions that give insight into the device

Predictive maintenance

What if your instruments let you know when they need maintenance in advance? With Heartbeat Technology you get built-in self-diagnostic functions permanently monitoring the state of your instruments. Based on these analytics, you can identify trends, act before an error occurs or predict when calibration is required. You can also determine the quality of the measurement value not only at the time of calibration, but any time while in use. Heartbeat Technology improves asset management with:

  • permanent process and device diagnostic coverage of up to 98% without process interruption

  • simplified maintenance with clear and standardized diagnostic messages

  • minimized unplanned downtime due to unexpected instrumentation failures
