GyroMetric Systems contract with Tarmac Tunstead

Remote Monitored Systems plc ("RMS" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that GyroMetric Systems Ltd ("GyroMetric"), in which RMS has a 58% shareholding, has signed an agreement to install digital monitoring equipment on a critical drive at Tarmac Limited's ("Tarmac") Tunstead Cement Plant.


In the age of the internet of things, digital information has provided a route to greater efficiency in many fields. Cement plants have large electrical drives which are critical to the functioning of the process as a whole.


Tarmac, which is a major sustainable manufacturer of cement, and GyroMetric, which is a leader in data harvesting from rotating drives, have signed an agreement to purchase and install digital monitoring equipment on the drive to the Raw Mill at the Tunstead Cement Plant. The 11kV drive is to the rock crushing mill which converts limestone from the on-site quarry into powder. Failure of this primary piece of plant stops the entire process, causing very expensive down time. Information which can indicate problems early enough to plan maintenance, and intervene before major damage is done, is therefore extremely valuable.


Measured digital parameters will include dynamic torque across the coupling, radial displacement of the shaft (and therefore misalignment), and torsional vibrations of the drive system. The data will also provide information on the condition of the gearbox.


This initiative by Tarmac should improve the utilisation of this huge installation of capital equipment.
