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.
PCN Europe’s March issue features an Industry Special covering issues concerning the Environment, we look at the role heat management plays in the world’s largest CO2 test facility, in another one we discover a zero liquid discharge treatment process for waste water. Our Product Focus on Measurement Technology includes among others an application story showing how predication and performance monitoring on a oil & gas platform enables onshore personnel to monitor essential equipment. In our technical article we look at ways to eliminate mechanical issues in differential pressure systems. At this time of the year we are looking forward to the trade show season, especially at Hannover Messe, the leading industrial trade show. 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.
