Honeywell expands partnership with SKF

SKF, a provider of vibration-based machinery protection and monitoring systems, has expanded its partnership with Honeywell as part of the Honeywell PKS Advantage Program.

Additional SKF solutions now available as part of the relationship include SKF @ptitude Analyst condition monitoring suite and SKF Multilog On-line System DMx to support the Honeywell Asset Management solution.

The PKS Advantage Program is a Honeywell sponsored collaborative program that engages other best-in-class suppliers of automation solutions and allows them to integrate their products with Honeywell's Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) giving end users greater flexibility in choosing complete solutions for their businesses.

Program participants closely collaborate to integrate and apply data and information throughout Experion PKS. The results include improved asset availability and effectiveness, optimised process throughput and work processes, and lower costs of ownership, operations and maintenance. 

“Honeywell is uniquely positioned to deliver integrated real-time condition based monitoring. The addition of these SKF technologies into Honeywell’s asset management solutions will greatly assist plant personnel in identifying problems with rotating and reciprocating machinery quickly, which reduces downtime and costs,” said Ron Stallworth, global business manager, Honeywell Process Solutions.

Gary M. Foster, SKF, commented, “We joined the PKS Advantage Program to provide high-value integrated machinery protection and vibration monitoring solutions to users of Honeywell’s Experion PKS.

"Our improved real-time monitoring approach reduces the time required to resolve equipment problems, minimises unplanned downtime, and lowers maintenance costs while preserving process safety.”

The Honeywell PKS Advantage Program provides openness and integration of member products within the Experion PKS automation infrastructure, and the alliance with SKF is beneficial for customers of both companies.

The PKS Advantage Program currently includes Cape Software, Flowserve, Flow Control Division, Metso Automation, Pepperl+Fuchs, Purelink Technology, Redline Communications, Turck and others.
