Condition Monitoring and Assessment for Rotating Machinery
Initially, when rotating machinery was used in industry, the maintenance practice was run to failure basis. This means that an equipment was being operated until it was unable to continue its intended function. This was the situation when corrective maintenance was later being introduced and implemented. As the technology progress and the rotating equipment becomes more critical to operation and business, preventive maintenance was introduced. The preventive maintenance task is usually recommended by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). This maintenance requires a fixed time base or operational hour-based intervention so that some of the critical components at a higher probability of failure can be inspected and replaced if required.
