Improving predictive maintenance with oil condition monitoring.

Posted in: Condition Monitoring

As its name suggests, predictive maintenance aims to determine the condition of equipment in-use and predict when maintenance activities need to be undertaken. The objective is to minimise maintenance costs whilst maximising machine availability. This strategy differs from preventative maintenance where timed or calendar maintenance is undertaken based on historical or simulation data. The preventative […]

Using Accelerometers in High Temperature Applications

Posted in: Condition Monitoring

Many industries have rotating machinery designed to operate at temperatures well above the usable ranges of standard IEPE (internal electronics piezo– electric) accelerometers. These applications usually involve machinery that reaches surface temperatures well above 300degrees F (151C). Typical applications include gas turbines, boilers, steam pumps and other machines that can be critical to operating efficiently. […]

Improving Bias Stability in High Temperature Accelerometers

Posted in: Condition Monitoring

In many industrial applications certain processes require monitoring where the temperatures exceed the long term capabilities of standard accelerometers, which may work for a few weeks or months but tend to fail over the long term. Older designs of higher temperature internally amplified accelerometers utilized components that were temperature tolerant, but suffered sensor bias voltage […]
