intelligent Machinery Analysis (iMA)

M2M Data Corporation (M2M) and Beta Machinery Analysis (BETA) have teamed up to provide iMA™, the most cost effective real-time monitoring, predictive maintenance, and optimization solution available.

M2M is the leading provider of outsourced SCADA and remote monitoring solutions for oil, gas, and electric energy markets. The Company manages over 8000 compressors and 500,000 data points for customers’ assets around the world.

BETA and M2M partnered to develop and provide intelligent Machinery Analysis (iMA™). This condition based monitoring service is aimed at improving availability and production throughput, compressor optimization, and fleet management; and reduced equipment downtime and maintenance costs.

The service is ideal for operators with reciprocating or screw compressor assets.

What’s In It For You

  • We remotely diagnose a problem before it results in costly, unplanned downtime.
  • With a diagnosis in hand you can dispatch the right resources to fix the problem, avoiding precious time and maintenance costs.
  • Asset management, including iMA™ recommendations, improve operational efficiency and throughput.
  • You save money by outsourcing the detailed machinery analysis. 
  • You generate higher profits and can focus on your business.

How it Works
BETA continuously tracks your equipment and ensures it is functioning normally. Advanced performance algorithms identify subtle changes – much earlier than by conventional means. Whenever a data point fluctuates outside the acceptable range, the status changes and alerts are triggered. Our machinery analysis helps you address the problem and improve the reliability of your equipment.

Three service levels of iMA are available. Our professional staff work with you to find the service that best suits your needs.
