3 Market Insights Asset Managers Should Know


At IPEC we’re constantly looking to the future. As the world around us continually evolves, we assess how these changes will affect the condition-based maintenance market. The 2010s saw big changes in industrial innovation powered by investment in digital technologies such as IIoT. But what can we expect in the new decade? What’s on the.. read more →

There is no escaping the fact that partial discharge is a complex phenomenon. The first step is to identify partial discharge activity, then to decide on the best course of action to take once partial discharge is detected. Both phases will require an experienced individual or consultant. But of course, it’s difficult to know what.. read more →

Welcome to the first instalment of our brand new ‘Ask the Expert’ series. IPEC recently spoke to Martin Judd, a partial discharge specialist at High Frequency Diagnostics and Engineering. HFDE is a Glasgow based consultancy business specialising in high frequency sensing and diagnosis of PD activity in high voltage equipment. Martin was one of the.. read more →

Historically, time-based maintenance of assets was the predominant tool used to ensure asset managers optimise asset life and repair defects. Many industries now favour condition-based maintenance, as it allows asset managers to determine asset health, and often the nature and severity of a defect before failure occurs. Overall, this improves reliability, performance and importantly, reducing costs. Implementing condition monitoring.. read more →
