The petrochemical industry produces products of tremendous value through labor-intensive and complex processes. Any unexpected equipment failure may result in a production shutdown and significant losses. With Industry 4.0 becoming a key development trend for manufacturing industries, the petrochemical industry is beginning to incorporate smart manufacturing, and leverage data insights. Prowave, with three decades of experience in equipment vibration research, collaborated with ADLINK to develop a new machine condition monitoring system for a large Taiwan petrochemical company. The result was increased reliability and safer operation of their production equipment.
