Prediction with Precision
Edmonton International Airport, Canada
Larsen & Turbo Limited
The Condensate Cooling Water (CCW) pump, one of the critical pumps in maintaining steadystate operations, is a horizontal vane pump operating at up to 1650 m3/hr with a discharge pressure of 9 MPa (62 psi) at 986 rpm.
Each day this pump is offline costs the plant $250,000 in lost revenue and each failure costs tens of thousands of dollars to execute an unplanned repair. Thus, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) really needed a predictive maintenance solution to detect faults at an early stage and provide a reliable prediction of Remaining Useful Life (RUL).

Westmoreland Coal Company
Coal is uncovered using the two draglines (1 – M8750; 1 – M8200). The Current annual production of mines is 5 million tonnes, 2 weeks of unplanned shutdown can cause as much as $11.5 million in losses. Recently, dragline M8750 was down due to an unexpected bearing failure on the boom. Thus, Westmoreland really needed an automated predictive maintenance solution to prevent these losses.
