Predictive Maintenance

Predictive Maintenance (PdM) is designed to improve your quality control processes by answering three essential questions related to maintaining in-service equipment:


    1. What is the remaining useful life of the equipment?
    2. What is the probability that a piece of equipment will fail in the near future?
    3. What are the causes of failures and what maintenance actions should be performed to fix these issues?

Instead of replacing the entire piece of equipment due to critical failure, a repair can be scheduled prior to failure minimizing your costs to only the price of the component and the labour needed for the repair.

Cantest Interstitial Monitoring Probe

CIMP

Cantest Interstitial Monitoring Probe (C.IMP). C.IMP is a solar powered interstitial vacuum monitor for upstream storage tanks. The probe gathers remote sensing data and uploads information to Cantest's SQC website via cellular network. Tanks can then be managed in an easy and centralized manner.

C.IMP uses a notification system which sends alerts as soon as significant losses are detected. This allows clients to catch leaks early and react immediately, minimizing costs associated with product loss.

C.IMP also features the ability to set custom test frequencies. It can be set for monthly monitoring to comply with leak detection regulations, or to daily/weekly for more proactive monitoring. The system is programmed to automatically start up at the desired test frequency and enter a rest mode when not in use to save energy and re-charge.
