Conditional Monitoring

Cipher Engineering continuously develop innovative ways to enhance safety within the industrial sector using Optic Fibre based solutions. We have formed strong relationships with the manufacturers and local distributors. All systems go through rigorous Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) prior to deployment. Cipher Engineering also commit to strict Operational Acceptance Testing (OAT) as well as User Acceptance Testing (UAT) prior to handover of a project.

What professional engineering services related to Condition Monitoring can Cipher deliver? We use Distributed Temperature, Strain and Accoustic Sensing Systems to design, implement and commission systems like:

  1. The condition monitoring of conveyance system to detect any operational abnormality that can cause fires. Detect seized bearings and idlers on the conveyance systems which can have a massive impact on electrical power consumption. Detect belt misalignments which can reduce the overall lifespan of the conveyance system.
  2. Measuring strain and soil settlements on the rock walls and ceiling of mine shafts. Monitor and validate that the mine is empty before blasting. Detect any unauthorised movement within the mine where no activity is expected. Monitor the temperature within mine shafts.
  3. The conditional monitoring of high voltage cables and sub-stations.
  4. Pipeline Leak Detection and product flow for underground and surface piping.
  5. Conditional Monitoring of electronic solutions within the retail and office environment.
  6. Factory Automation and plant condition monitoring.

With conditional monitoring, our aim is to detect possible emergencies before they occur and notify the correct staff to react accordingly. The systems we design are proactive and not reactive. It is always better to prevent an emergency than to fight the consequences thereof afterward. Cipher Engineering is also directly involved with the commissioning of these systems.

Turnkey Installations

Cipher Engineering does offer a full turnkey solution which mitigate the risk of delays and can lower the overall expenditure of the project.
