ABS has announced that it has published two documents to help industry with condition monitoring. The new ABS Guidance Notes on Condition Monitoring Techniques helps owners choose appropriate monitoring techniques, and the company’s Guide for Surveys Based on Machinery Reliability and Maintenance Techniques provides updated methodologies for achieving classification notations applied to machinery reliability and maintenance management programmes.

The new Guidance Notes include a summary of condition-monitoring techniques, guidance for selecting the appropriate technique based on expectations and needs, information on measurement frequency, personnel skill requirements, company resources, and approaches to risk assessment.

The Guide explains the process and requirements for ABS review of design submittals and explains how designs and maintenance plans throughout lifecycle stages of the asset are analysed.

Chief Technology Officer, Howard Fireman, said: “There have been significant advances in condition monitoring software and diagnostic technologies that have the potential to improve operational efficiency and enhance overall safety […] These changes are reflected in these newly released documents.”

ABS claims that applying the guidance provided in these documents can lead to better system selection and streamline the classification process.
