Wind Turbine Gearbox meets Big Data Analytics
Wind Turbine Gearbox meets Big Data Analytics - Wyoming based LogiLube introduces SmartGear™ gearbox condition monitoring, focusing initially on the Wind Energy market. SmartGear™ monitors one of the most critical (and costly) component of wind turbines — the gearbox. LogiLube's suite of smart solutions covers every critical factor contributing to uptime reliability. Real-time analysis of fluid conditions such as gear lube oil and hydraulic fluid, in-service automated oil sam
Big Data Analytics protects O&G Midstream Compressors
RECIP compressors rely on proper cylinder lubrication rates as delivered by the high pressure force-feed injection lube system. Too much oil and the added stiction force robs horsepower, gums up the valves causing premature failure and lowers of overall compressor efficiency. A drop of just 0.5% in efficiency can cost a natural gas compression operation $180,000 per year in lost revenue. This Ariel JGK-4 compressor processes propane at a Texas-based natural gas processing pla
Big Data Analytics and Condition Monitoring fulfills promise of Industrial IoT for Oil & Gas!
OilDoc 2017 (Rosenheim, Germany) - Big Data Analytics and Condition Monitoring fulfills promise of Industrial IoT for Oil & Gas! LogiLube’s patented SmartOil™+ SmartLab™ oil condition monitoring (OCM) technology platform measures and edge-processes 40 million data points annually per machine. Real-time OCM data is correlated with lab generated physical oil sample analysis data and measured against OEM Condemning Limits. In addition to a web-enabled dashboard, users are provid
Industrial IoT meets O&G Midstream Compression
Industrial IoT meets O&G Midstream Compression - Another successful installation of a SmartOil™ real-time oil condition monitoring (OCM) system on an Ariel RECIP compressor (Texas natural gas processing plant). Compressor mounted, edge-processed system captures 30-second snapshot of volumetric measurement of lube oil used in force-feed injection of cylinders, monitors oil quality of frame lube oil, and autonomously (non-human) draws in-service ROUTINE and EXCEPTION-based oil
OilDoc 2017 — Industry 4.0 Panel Discussion
OilDoc 2017 (Rosenheim, Germany) - Panelists discuss INDUSTRY 4.0, aka Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Ironically, their wish list (oil condition monitoring, detailed machine data, integration of physical lab analysis data, auto-population of database, elimination of human error incidents, speed of data to client, predictive analytics, actionable information, etc.) is already available TODAY...from LogiLube's SmartOil™ technology platform.
