HPS Uniformance Asset Sentinel claims to boost uptime



Sep. 3, 2015 – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has launched Uniformance Asset Sentinel, which works to continuously monitor equipment and process health, “assisting industrial facilities to predict and prevent asset failures and poor operational performance.”

The technology, HPS says, helps companies reduce unplanned downtime by up to 10 per cent and cut maintenance costs by 15 per cent — “transforming work processes from reactive to proactive,” it adds. The offering expands HPS’ Uniformance software suite and supports the emergence of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in the process industry, enabling companies to collect, organize and analyze data for a specific asset or “thing.” The technology works by continuously accessing data from a variety of sources, including process parameters, vibration data and alarms. Predicted or detected deviations from these models are used to generate notifications to facilitate investigation and intervention to minimize the cost and frequency of an event.
