Machinery Health Monitoring
DEXTER is a real-time, on-board diagnostic and prognostic technology designed for both maintenance and operating cost reduction. Its goal is to ensure your machinery plant operates at top efficiency by providing early warning alerts when equipment problems start to occur. By attending to these alert warnings, your crews will avoid expensive repairs and failures that can lay-up your ships. Beyond its maintenance benefits, DEXTER will also help keep operating expenses for energy consumption to a minimum by ensuring that your equipment is operating at top health and efficiency.
DEXTER applications cover all types of critical machinery, from propulsion diesel engines, gas turbines, and generators to heat exchangers, pumps and motors. The software is mature, proven technology installed on over 40 vessels. DEXTER can be cost-effectively integrated into all modern machinery control systems as an additional level of reliability assurance. With over ten years of shipboard operating experience across a diverse range of machinery plants, there is simply no other product on the market that matches DEXTER’s track record for diagnostic precision, reliability, and ease of use. Its high-tech, neural-based diagnostics are shielded by a simple, intuitive user interface that takes less than an hour to learn.
Automating Condition Based Maintenance
DEXTER automates the majority of work required for implementing CBM on your high-valued machinery. Data management and analysis occurs continuously around the clock, alerting operators only when problems are detected. DEXTER actually reduces crew workload and the expense of implementing CBM through the following key features:
- Automatic data acquisition
- Automatic equipment health checks
- Automatic diagnostics and predictive maintenance
- Automatic data recording and performance reporting
