win of the week air handling unit at pharma

Industry – Pharmaceutical
Machine – Air Handling Unit
Fault Type – Impacting, Bearing Lubrication Issues, Mechanical Structural Looseness, Defective Belts

In March of 2021, Augury’s system flagged multiple faults within a critical Air Handling Unit at a leading pharmaceutical company. At first Augury’s system identified rapid impacting and lubrication issues on the machine’s motor bearings, which the site team addressed by replacing the motor’s bearings. While this repair did improve the vibration levels within the motor, Augury’s algorithms also identified mechanical structural looseness and a defective belt developing within the AHU’s fan.
