The CSI 9210 Machinery Health Transmitter monitors vibration, temperature and speed on machine trains. It can be applied to all types of plant and mill rotating machinery, including motors, fans, cooling tower fans, pumps, and compressors. Condition monitoring diagnostics give a better understanding of equipment health and developing issues, enable predictive maintenance practices, resulting in less equipment downtime, longer machine life, and lower maintenance costs. Vibration data allows users to accurately pinpoint potentially damaging conditions such as imbalance, looseness, bearing degradation, motor overloading, and pump cavitation. PlantWeb alerts and recommended actions are communicated to process automation systems and AMS Suite predictive maintenance software through the Foundation fieldbus protocol. Predictive diagnostics give vibration analysts a real-time view of the same machinery health information that plant operators see to perform troubleshooting and root cause analysis for best cost maintenance.
Whether in industry, meteorology or builing services, the humidity and temperature sensors from Galltec+Mela are at home...
PCN Europe’s May issue features an Industry Special concerning the chemical industry; in one of our articles on the subject we look at 100 years of industrial-scale ammonia production, another one shows you how overhead stirring systems helped to improve the efficiency of polymer synthesis. Our Product Focus on Plant Networking includes among others a case study about a SCADA system providing supervision for a confectionary manufacturer. You might also be interested in our technical article highlighting how modern communication technologies change terminal operation. This edition also presents you with many other application stories and product news from all areas of the processing industries, enhanced with datasheets and videos.
