Leveraging digitalization to optimize hygienic processing

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

The new CM Connect (photo) is a subscription-based condition monitor and cloud gateway. It enables plant operators to access rotating-equipment data on processing lines from a remote location. With data on actual runtime, trend analysis and time to next service close at hand, plant operators can make informed maintenance decisions using their personal computers and mobile devices. This protects process continuity and critical assets, improves workplace safety, saves time and money, and delivers competitive advantage. Acting as a gateway communicating via Bluetooth, the CM Connect can link up to 10 of this company’s CM wireless vibration monitors. It then transmits the data over a 4G cellular network to the cloud for review and analysis on an intuitive, user-friendly dashboard. Besides linking CM wireless vibration monitors, the CM Connect can also act as a sensor. It measures vibration, inboard temperature and total runtime when mounted on LKH, SRU, SX and DuraCirc pumps, or other rotating machines, such as agitators or mixers. — Alfa Laval AB, Lund, Sweden
