No longer is your CMMS tied to a computer. According to MAPCON, its feature-rich Enterprise and On-Demand CMMS Software packages have gone mobile, saving time and money for users in countless ways. Consider, for example, how the company’s Mobile 9-1-1 Maintenance Dispatch Capability can improve your equipment-health-emergency response: A technician discovers a machine leaking lubricant onto the plant floor. Using a standard Android or Apple Smartphone, tablet or iPad, all he/she has to do is open the MAPCON CMMS app, snap a picture of the leaking equipment, attach it to an Emergency Work Request and tap “Send.” In mere seconds, maintenance management could be dispatching a fully equipped team to the scene with a Work Order and the right parts to make the repair. The crew can use their smart devices to directly access repair manuals, schematics and parts inventories in real-time, or, if needed, find and contact an authorized vendor for support. Once the equipment is back online, personnel can document the job with pictures and close the Work Order via a smart device.

0613gadgetinproBearing Protection Device Earns IP66 Rating From Underwriters Laboratories

Inpro/Seal has announced that the Inpro/Seal Bearing Isolator has received IP66 rating through third-party testing performed at Underwriters Laboratories (UL). IP (or Ingress Protection) ratings are used to define the level of sealing effectiveness for enclosed equipment against intrusion from foreign bodies, including dust, dirt, powder and moisture. A rating of IP66 states that the enclosed equipment is dust-tight and protected against heavy seas or water projected in powerful jets from entering the seal and passing into the enclosed equipment. Inpro/Seal’s Bearing Isolator earned the IP66 rating after stringent testing found that zero dust or water passed through the seal and entered the enclosed equipment. The rating indicates these bearing protection devices are premium sealing solutions for applications in severe duty and/or washdown environments, where outside contamination entering the bearing housing causes premature bearing failure.
