$37,500
Maximum penalty per day for each violation of permit limits.
Ensure Asset
Performance

Unreliable asset performance can significantly impact multiple areas of business, increasing operating costs and compromising safety. Water & wastewater asset failures cause unplanned downtime, strain overworked maintenance teams, and increase the risk of exceeding permit limits. The last thing a plant manager needs is a call from their biggest customer wondering why they aren’t keeping up with demand.

Today’s operations leaders in water & wastewater are turning to operational intelligence as part of their overall asset performance management strategy. The AtonixOI solution turns data into action to prevent issues and optimize performance. Here’s how it works:

AtonixOI In Action

What failures could you prevent with real-time tracking of issues from alert through resolution?

Connect
1000s of system and asset process data tags to OI platform
Connect
Asset data tag:
Aeration blower bearing vibration
Detect
emerging reliability and performance issues before they cause failures
Connect
Blower bearing vibration started increasing steadily over the course of several hours – needed further investigation.
Diagnose
issues and prioritize maintenance planning based on impact
Connect
Automated context trends showed a higher vibration than for similar blowers and no increase in speed, suggesting potential bearing damage.
Resolve
issues through collaboration across stakeholders
Connect
Operators switched to a standby blower, isolating the equipment for repair and preventing $15k in bearing replacement and process downtime.

Actionable Water & Wastewater Insights for Asset Experts

Asset experts need actionable insights, not complex math tools, to focus on what they know best – pulp & paper plant operations. Implement the AtonixOI solution and start realizing benefits in weeks, not months:
Prevent equipment failures and unplanned downtime

by detecting reliability risks like pump or blower failures well in advance of a SCADA alarm or equipment failure for swift diagnosis and proactive resolution.

Improve operational performance

by calculating and monitoring key performance indicators to identify performance issues like excess energy or chemical usage or insufficient pollutant removal before they impact operating costs or permit limits.

Prioritize maintenance

for scheduled outages by understanding the impact of each issue on overall performance.

Improve safety

by monitoring and detecting risks associated with asset failures leading to chemical leaks or increased pollutant discharge.
