EtaPRO APR — Recognize Asset Anomalies Sooner

Maximize Asset Performance and Predict Maintenance With EtaPRO APR

One of the most significant expenses in the operation and maintenance of plant equipment is unplanned and corrective maintenance. GP Strategies’ advanced pattern recognition (APR) technology detects asset anomalies at their earliest stages and provides notifications before the irregularities become critical.

EtaPRO APR continuously compares current data to detailed empirical models of “normal” data, resulting in a highly effective means of tracking equipment health parameters. This integrated solution delivers the capability to identify and diagnose root causes of system abnormalities and quantify their impact on asset availability, efficiency, and operating costs. EtaPRO APR extracts information from plant historical data and alerts personnel to equipment issues requiring action.

Improve asset reliability and minimize downtime while reducing overall operations and maintenance costs with EtaPRO.

APR Benefits

  • null

    Expect the Unexpected

    As companies seek to reduce operating costs, employees have been given more responsibility, leaving less time for monitoring equipment condition and plant performance. As such, subtle and slowly developing failures go undetected, often resulting in unnecessary forced outages and lost revenue.

    Early detection and predictive maintenance of an incipient failure allows for a planned outage at an economically advantageous time, reduces damage to equipment, and shortens repair times.

    Intelligent Technology

    EtaPRO APR automatically filters out thousands of data points that are not applicable to the current equipment operation. This unique approach provides inherent recognition of different operating modes, such as startup, steady state, and load following, resulting in improved model accuracy across the entire operating range.

    EtaPRO APR also helps minimizes false alarms while maintaining the earliest notification of process anomalies.

    Proven Experience

    GP Strategies has been developing and implementing APR-based equipment condition monitoring solutions for over two decades. Our “power proven” engineers use their deep knowledge and understanding of power plant performance to deliver reliable APR solutions with fewer false positives than competing alternatives.

    • Reduces forced outage rates by providing early warning of equipment problems
    • Allows for planned outages and repairs before a catastrophic event occurs
    • Uses management-by-exception techniques to increase effectiveness of plant and engineering staff
    • Focuses attention on actionable issues, eliminating the need to review data when things are performing well
    • Increases lead time for repair and minimizes unplanned maintenance activities
