Due to the criticality of the plant, Elite Lubrication and the board contracted a third-party vibration analysis company to conduct an independent analysis. The company determined that Augury was correct in diagnosing the severe fault, and that the service company had missed the diagnosis.
With Augury’s insights and advance notifications, plant operators were able to change how thechillers rotated through periods of lower demand to reduce load on the problem chiller until the issue was resolved, saving valuable resources and reducing the risk of catastrophic failure until the repair was executed.
Today Augury is being used throughout both the chilled water plant and the nearby cogeneration power plant (a 100 MW facility).
