The food - and beverage company Lion in Australia include online monitoring as part of an outsourced service.

The choice has fallen on VIKONs system MIVA Master system which offers a very user friendly interface and remote monitoring.

The plant is located in Chelsea Hights and there are two mission critical Alfa Laval separators, type PX518 & PX718 which will be remotely monitored by the service provider. It is imperative that no unplanned downtime occurs during the busy summer period,

In addition to increased availability is an ambition to shift from time based to CBM (Condition Based Maintenance) to lower parts and maintenance costs. Lion sees great potential to improve the efficiency of their maintenance through MIVA Master since a system can handle up to 255 machines, include process parameters in the automated fault detection and also perform balancing.




Fewer unplanned stops and higher availability is behind LD & D's, leading dairy producer in Australia, decision to install VIKONs MIVA Master

The plant in Morewell that processes everything from milk to butter and cheese aims to increase production by raising an already high availability through condition monitoring of rotating machinery.

As a first step, LD & D chosen to monitor a milk separator of type C40 from Alfa Laval. The machine is mission critical as it is running 24/7 during the peak season and an unplanned stop will cause significant production losses.

The system distinguishes itself as time-saving and does not require expertise in vibration analysis since it has automatic fault detection and the machine status is displayed in clear text. Another benefit is that data collected by VIKON´s portable data collector MIVA 5100 can be downloaded to and analysed by the MIVA Master software.

The system was delivered in June and will be commissioned during September.





MIVA Master online chosen by New Zealands largest diary for optimization of reliability

The diary company Fonterra at New Zealand is one of the world largest producer of diary products. During high season, the uptime demand for mission critical equipment is very high, including homogenizers and separators, which then runs 24 /7.

The solution to optimize the availability and extend service intervals without risking unplanned downtime or breakdowns is spelled online condition monitoring with CBM (condition based maintenance ).

VIKON deliver and commission a first installation at the end user on four homogenizers (atomizes milk under high pressure) and one separator for remote monitoring by MIVA Master.

The service vendor monitors machine status from their service center and complements this with VIKONs expertise that sends regular reports with trending and recommendations for action.

Installation, commissioning and training takes place in the spring and the start of operations is scheduled to May.



Customer cases now available on the homepage
