Sounding Board: What new technologies have you seen that are aiding predictive maintenance programs? 

Smartphones, tablets and apps are among the newer technologies cited by TLT readers in response to this month’s survey question. Also mentioned were hand-held infrared scanners, electronic signal analysis and a growing trend toward in-house tools, which can give fluid managers greater control over the oil analysis process and shorten the time needed to receive results. However, many readers noted that the greater issue isn’t related to technology but the continuing battle to get senior managers to understand the importance and revenue-saving potential of predictive maintenance.
