Simplifying Sensor Calibration and Maintenance in Power Plants

Falling profit margins mean there is growing pressure on power plants to do more with less. In many plants there has been a reduction in maintenance staff, and the remaining team is left trying to keep all equipment operational with a lower budget and in fewer hours. Digital sensors are a major contribution to simplifying and easing the maintenance burden.

Less maintenance, easier calibration

METTLER TOLEDO Thornton understands the pressures on such teams. That is why we develop analytical measurement systems that have less need for maintenance, are easier to calibrate and even tell operators when servicing will be required.

Intelligent Sensor Management (ISM) is a digital technology platform for process analytical instrumentation. ISM uses the power of on-board microprocessors to provide worry-free measurement points and maximum process confidence. You can find out more in our video below.

Advanced sensor diagnostics

ISM's real-time, dynamic sensor diagnostics continually monitor sensor "health". Easy-to-read diagnostic tools show when sensor replacement, calibration or other servicing will be needed. Now maintenance can be planned in advance for when it will actually be required.

Predictive diagnostics is just one reason why power plants are moving to ISM digital sensors. Find more reasons by downloading Five Ways to Simplify Calibration and Maintenance, and see why you should make the switch.

Highlights include:
  • How to calibrate faster
  • Maintain sensors only when needed
  • Ensure accurate measurements
  • Eliminate polarization time

 ISM technology is available on most METTLER TOLEDO analytical sensors, including pH probes, dissolved oxygen probes, conductivity probes, and TOC sensors.
