Equipment Failures

A recent accident at an Arkansas nuclear power plant - caused by the collapse of a lifting rig - resulted in the death of one worker and eight others being injured. These kinds of plant equipment failures are devastating to plant workers, families and communities.

Predictive analytics can help companies prevent catastrophic equipment problems and save money by operating their machinery more strategically.

In industrial settings where workers are exposed to powerful machinery, unfortunate accidents occur. In those settings, it's even more important to use equipment monitoring technology to ensure that conditions are safe for workers.

A recent accident at a dairy facility in Visakhapatnam, India killed several engineers who were performing equipment maintenance. Another accident, which injured five workers, also occurred recently at the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant.

A recent power failure at Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant has resulted in four of the plant's fuel storage pools being left without fresh cooling water for more than 20 hours, raising concerns about the safety of the plant.
