WIKA’s Fast Audit Services Team has conducted more than 250 audits of mechanical pressure and temperature gauges in refineries, chemical plants, and similar facilities over the last several years, allowing WIKA to develop the most extensive instrumentation knowledge base in the industry. One key finding from the FAST team instrument audits is that an average of almost 40% of gauge installations in plants have failed or are not functioning correctly. Keep in mind that the loss of data from a single pressure gauge can lead to expensive consequences, so the fact that four out of 10 gauges are not producing valid data is virtually certain to increase maintenance costs at these facilities. That’s where FAST services help. FAST engineers will work with your team to correct, improve, and consolidate your gauge population.
