Southwest Medical Center is taking a big step
Southwest Medical Center is enetering the world of Condition Based Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance



This week Southwest Medical Center is taking a big step into a world class CBM (condition Based Monitoring) program.

This program will be setup by Chuck Peterson Predictive Maintenance and will include the following;

Infrared Thermal Imaging  (Electrical Switch Gear)

Air borne Ultrasound. (Compressed Gas Leaks)

Structure Borne Ultrasound  (Bearings, Alignment, and Motor greasing)

They have over 100 motors in their facility this program will allow us to keep track and trend any changes in the workings of the machinery. It will allow for proper greasing and not over greasing. It will let us know if machines are properly aligned. (Shaft to Shaft).

This program will start showing a real dollar savings on day one by allowing us the chance to fix a problem before it breaks, and by finding Medical Air Leaks through out the facility.

Medical Air, Nitrogen, Helium, and just plain compressed air are all very expensive.

Now the kicker, Chuck will show how this entire program can be installed and run, basically, for FREE

Peterson Predictive Maintenance asked to speak at Conference
Speaker at Conference
Kansas Health Engineers State Conference

Peterson Predictive Maintenance has been asked and given the honor of speaking on September 18, 2019, at the Annual Kansas Health Engineers annual conference in Manhattan Ks.

This is a very knowledgeable group and they are eager to learn ways they can attain a higher level of predictive maintenance, that will also cut down tremendously on the unscheduled down time.

Chuck Peterson, Owner of Peterson Predictive Maintenance will be the speaker and he will touch on the following topics.

Infrared Thermal Imaging

Airborne Ultrasound  (compressed gas leaks)

Structure born Ultrasound  (bearings )

He will then explain how all of these technologies working together will save $$$$$$$

Ultrasound and Condition Based Monitoring
Greasing and Trending Bearings

Ultrasound Detection

Mechanical equipment produces a “normal” sound signature when operating effectively. As components begin to fail, a change in the original sonic signature occurs. Using ultrasound detection, this change can be noted as a shift in intensity or change in sound quality – heard through headphones and recorded for further analysis.

Ultrasound also has huge benefits in condition-based lubrication programs for bearings. Contrary to a time – based schedule, bearings are regularly tested and lubricated precisely when and to what extent they need. This saves both time and money, while eliminating detrimental over lubrication.
