I guess no standard code for that but you can get PM for different rotary eqpt from their respective OEM manuals. So can start from there.

They are readily available from quite a few sources-I have seen them from $29 to $300. I don't leave the office without one stuck in my back pocket. I would base your purchase on the use of the gun-if your just trending temperatures and are not going for absolute accuracy I would go for a cheaper model. Remember consistency in the measurements is key and the bearing housing temp is anywhere form 10-20 degrees cooler than the bearing internal temperature.

This may not need be said, but when you do purchase one and use it in the field, keep the spot size ratio in mind. I've seen quite a number of people use these and not be aware that the further away you are the larger the measured area is.

If your not stuck on IR temp measurements and willing to go with contact measurement the SKF thermopen is an excellent tool. Inexpensive reliable and accurate. I have used these for years and recommend. http://www.skf.com/group/produ...rmometer/index.htmle .

Asset Hierarchy

Jim Perpinan ·
We are reshuffling the deck on our equipment groups within an industrial setting of a power plant and I am looking for any standards or industrial requirements to create an equipment Hierarchy to start with. So far I have a yes, on a equipment hierarchy by "Systems" that starts by highest asset value/cost and work down (on drill down). But I am aware of other hierarchy but need to get my hands on a few to test out. this will be going into a EAMS system. Any refinery templates out there?

Re: Asset Hierarchy

VinMan ·
Great to hear that Jim. ISO 14224 is more relevant to Oil and Gas Industry but is more universal in nature to be applied in other industry verticals. Wish you the best for your journey to organise the asset hierarchy. Shout out to me in case you need help me with the processes and templates.

Re: Asset Hierarchy

Jim Perpinan ·
Thank you, Vinman I have seen a lot of Uniformat II being used for smaller plants but its just not valid for a plant system because we do not use 90% of the hierarchy. This ISO 14224 seems to cover the bases and more.

Re: Asset Hierarchy

VinMan ·
Jim. ISO 14224 can provide you a good structure to see how the failure codes and hierarchy can be organised. Emerson's MRG Consulting also has a great value offering which can help you organise to validate the Master Equipment List followed Functional Locations/Area and then upload them into your CMMS. Let me know if you would like to know more about it. Cheers

Troubleshooting Guide For Rotating Equipment

Lucman ·
Hi All, Can anyone please share with me any book/guide which contains all possible faults, how to diagnose/troubleshoot them and their rectification for rotating equipment? I fully understand that OEM manuals often have this information, but that normally does not cover all possible faults and their troubleshooting. Thank you for your help and appreciate your inputs.

Unfortunately what John and Shurafa are saying is true. Each type of equipment has it own unique failure modes that encompasses the design of the machine, the duty cycle, criticality of the machine and any process parameters. FMEA is in order for any critical equipment that you are responsible for. Too cut down on the work you group equipment together, fans/pumps/gearboxes etc. and than look at the particulars. There are templates out there. In the power business where I toil EPRI has a...

Re: standard practical procedure

Michael Meehan, CMRP, CRL ·
The maintenance required is going to depend on the service (light, medium, rough/corrosive), the duty cycle (intermittent, continuous, etc), and the equipment design (rolling element or plain bearings, pumps with packing or mechanical seals, vertical or horizontal motors, oil or grease lubrication, etc), so a generic guide to maintenance is all but impossible. As an earlier comment noted, start with OEM guidelines to begin with. Your next two steps should be to perform a Criticality...

Equipment protection for storage

Alvin MC ·
Im looking for best practices when it comes to protecting storage equipment like pumps and gearboxes for an extended period of time? Do you store equipment with just vaprotech or cortec for preservation? How about storing them with mineral oil and preservative? If so, what should be the oil level? fill the whole housing? Thanks
Reply

Re: Equipment protection for storage

John from PA ·
API 686 Recommended Practices for Machinery Installation and Installation Design has a section covering preservation. It is very specific as to machine type; for example, what you might want to do relative to a centrifugal compressor might be significantly different than what you would do to a reciprocating compressor.

CMMS history tracking

Jim Perpinan ·
I have a programming question about how the CMMS tracks & reveals repair work on equipment. Our current system goes like this: Equipment PM has w/o’s for each equipment on a PM route. If a piece of equipment is found to be defective a new equipment number is assigned and the old one is switch out on the PM with new one. Equipment PM will then have w/o’s for each equipment (new one too) on next PM route. My question here is how do you or the CMMS system or others know that a specific...

Re: CMMS history tracking

Jeff Wahl ·
Hi Jim, CMMS asset hierarchies are composed of two parts - an Equipment number and a Location designation. In your example, the location stays the same, while the equipment number changes with each replacement. If you run your work order history against the equipment, your results will bookend the life of the individual equipment. If you run your work order history against the location, you will get work order history for all equipment numbers that have existed in the location, assuming your...

Re: CMMS history tracking

Jim Perpinan ·
Jeff, If w/o history is ran against the equipment it will be a dead-end. But if you run a w/o history search at a specific location then you will (should) see all history. OK, I get it, but we in a small industrial plant have only one location, boiler room-level 1. So, we either grid our floor 5,000sq ft by 3'x3' or maybe add a unique location marker or use a unique P&ID ID maker that is attached to the unique equipment number, ( believe this is what we has currently). By searching the...

Re: CMMS history tracking

Jeff Wahl ·
For location designations I use a combination of both Site>Building>Room for building facilities and P&ID system designations for equipment. You should designate the pump location without any specific pump data. Underneath the location folder is where the specific pump equipment should be built. Which CMMS do you use? Example: Site>Building>Boiler Room>Boiler 1>Boiler Feed Pump 1 (location)>Boiler Feed Pump 1 (equipment). You would query against is Boiler Feed Pump 1...

Re: CMMS history tracking

Gregory Perry2 ·
Asset tracking has its roots in proper hierarchy / taxonomy constructs that incorporates two levels: Location Level and Entity Level. Under Location Level, you want to line out your hierarchy from the largest to smallest in terms of geography. For Facilities use Site > Area > Building > Level/Floor > Room. For Production use Site > Building > Area or Department > Line # > Functional Location > ..... For the Entity Level: i.e. Functional Assembly > Asset Type or...

I would expect that Aims has a start-up support service to get your equipment and spares entered in the best manner possible. Maintenance Connection did the initial CMMS set-up for our implementation. There's a lot of work that goes into fully implementing a CMMS. I am still improving things here.

Re: CMMS history tracking

Gregory Perry2 ·
Jim, Have you considered, or are you using, Action Codes on your Work Orders? (see below example) Action codes can serve as the mechanism to "Flag" instances within your WO Histories what outcome was taken. If you had several assets replaced within a location, there should have been a work order created that documents that action. This way, as the work order histories serve as your historian, you can report on the number of instances over a period of prescribed time a particular (action...

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "logic programming"? If you're referring to equipment that fails on a relatively known frequency in your process you could set up a PM work order automatically generate prior to the failure to replace the "nuisance equipment". You would still need to enter the specific name tag data from the equipment. CMMSes handle each piece of equipment as unique. If the equipment isn't unique you could consider it as a spare part to a parent asset. In this instance...

Re: CMMS history tracking

Jim Perpinan ·
I starting to see that no software is capable of being configured to flag replacements by logic programming and that this is all still done by manual reports to be aware of nuisance equipment (equipment areas) that is consistently being replaced. I was hope that new software would have this auto ability. Is this what I am hearing? Thank you

Re: CMMS history tracking

Good luck with your CMMS efforts Jim. One thing I'd like to make you aware of based on my experience, Problem, Cause, Remedy Codes are notoriously inaccurate due to being subjectively applied based on technician experience/situational variances and generalized because too many codes are extremely cumbersome and too few are broad-based. I treat them as another data point, but not the entire story.
