The condition monitoring comparison guide for the oil and gas industry

Countless pumps, blowers, mixers, compressors, blowout preventers, top drives, pipelines, storage tanks and other components power the global flow of oil and gas from underground and undersea reserves to our homes and offices. Most of the time everything goes right—but when it goes wrong, the environmental fallout can be tremendous.

Modern condition monitoring systems can help upstream, midstream and downstream facilities avoid such disaster by detecting upcoming equipment failure at an early stage. What’s more, some condition monitoring technologies can provide additional insights that help companies achieve safer and more sustainable operations over the long term.

This document will compare the most common condition monitoring techniques—infrared thermography, vibration analysis, acoustic emission analysis, oil analysis and motor current signature analysis—on their merits in oil & gas equipment.
