Online condition monitoring services that reduce cooler downtime

When the cooler goes down, clinker production stops. Before you know it, production losses run into the millions. So, how can you avoid unplanned outages? With continuous online condition monitoring services, powered by the experts at FLSmidth.

What we offer

Expert data analysis – your no. 1 shield against unplanned downtime

Sometimes it can seem like equipment failure comes out of nowhere, but there are almost always early warning signs – often invisible to the naked eye. Unless you’re continuously capturing and analysing the data, you wouldn’t see it. And then outages take you by surprise, causing damage, high costs and untold stress. Our online condition monitoring services for Cross-Bar coolers log data from various parts of the cooler and send it via a secure connection to our Global Remote Service Centre. They’ll report back to you immediately on any areas of concern and provide regular reports and guidance on how to optimise your cooler health.
