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 November issue features an Industry Special concerning the Oil & Gas industry; in our technical article on the subject we look at the role rotary encoders play in the oil or gas production , in another one we discuss the opportunities fracking could offer for the valve industry. Our Product Focus on Pumps, Valves & Compressors includes among others an application story showing how screw blowers increase the energy efficiency of water treatment. You might also be interested in our case study showing you how automation and drive technology help the brewery industry to maintain their market position. 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.
