Find out more about our digital platform and how we use it to our customers’ benefit in our short Howden Uptime animated video.

Howden Uptime

The system combines active inputs, such as temperature, pressure and vibration, with reference parameters from manuals, specifications and maintenance reports. When the data is analysed, it provides a unique foundation for maintaining and enhancing operational excellence.


The unique Howden digital twin is at the heart of the Howden Uptime solution. The Howden digital twin is a digital profile of the Howden product and has been purpose built for the individual products and applications. It compares the original design data, the set of parameters within which we know the equipment should be operating, with the operational data.


Identifying these differences in operation early allows for corrective actions to be put in place, mitigating risk that would have otherwise gone unnoticed and could result in unplanned downtime.
