Rockwell to provide monitoring equipment to Air Liquide America

Milwaukee, WI—Rockwell Automation announced Feb. 12 that is has signed a five-year, $4.5-million contract to provide Air Liquide America LP with condition-based monitoring equipment and services.


Milwaukee, WI— Rockwell Automation plies oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and other gases and services to many industries, including steel, oil refining, chemicals, glass, electronics, healthcare, food processing, metallurgy, paper and aerospace.

Rockwell will supply its Entek vibration analysis equipment to Air Liquide. This equipment will enable the gas supplier to remotely monitor critical machinery and equipment. Rockwell's monitoring technicians will help the company's maintenance personnel analyze

Several of Air Liquide's facilities already operate automatically or with one technician. Monitoring data collected at all of these facilities will now go to one location for analysis.

'By conducting an analysis of its equipment, as well as implementing monitoring capability across its facilities, Air Liquide now has the framework in place to realize the benefits of increased productivity and profitability due to predictive maintenance,' says Mike Laszkiewicz, Rockwell's Global Manufacturing Solutions vp.
