Machinery vibration is measured using the Machine Sentry® vibration sensors. The tri-axis vibration sensor allows measurement to be made up to 5x faster than other equipment.
Oil Analysis should be a key component of any condition monitoring program, as it can often provide some simple to implement actions that significantly improve Mean time Between Failure and eliminate costly breakdowns.
Component failure is often associated with a rise in in its temperature, thermal imaging is commonly used in condition monitoring programs to help identify abnormalities in machinery or plant.
Machine Sentry® contains ADA™ the Automated Diagnostic Assistant which can predict stage 2, 3 and 4 bearing failure and detect a wide range of other common fault conditions by using advanced algorithms which are included as standard, many of which would be detected by a category II vibration analyst.
Machine Sentry® can collect and collate “Watch Keeping” (manually collected) process data from the assets around your plant. “Watch Keeping” data is easily entered via the mobile device and stored in the master database with other data from the asset.
Machine Sentry® provides reporting capabilities and data can be trended. Alarms can be configured for any stored parameter (including calculated values). Visual indicators show the status of each asset around the plant.
