Statistical Inference of LZL-Type Mass Flowmeter Life Distribution Model


Article Preview

Characteristics of field failure data are analyzed in this paper. The failure data and sales record of LZL-type mass flowmeter are used to infer life distribution of this conduct. The lines can be fitted in coordinates of six distribution using least square and the residual sum of squares are compared, the minimum correspond is the best distribution type. The results show that the life distribution style of this conduct is the two parameter exponential distribution, which is the base to analyze and predict failure development, research failure mechanism and draw up maintenance policy.
