In process industry plant downtimes are often critical and state a major cost factor across all industries and processes. Around five percent of the whole production capacity remains unused due to unexpected down times. Up to 40 % and more of this loss of production is induced by outage of field devices.

Pumps are an integral component, the driving force, in any process plant. But still, while online diagnostics is state-of-the-art for sensors and actuators, pumps mostly remain unmonitored.

Today, common practice to avoid unplanned plant downtimes, preventive maintenance is applied. That means that maintenance work is scheduled during planned shutdowns. This reduces or even avoids downtimes due to asset failure, but increases primary maintenance cost.

Predictive maintenance is a strategy for optimizing downtimes and cost for wear parts as well as labor.
