Effective Vibration Monitoring for Reciprocating Compressors

Reciprocating compressors
Modern standards require frame sensors and more This paper reviews and discusses the machinery protection philosophy for reciprocating compressors that once was state of the art, and examines how technology, as well as applicable standards, have evolved since the 1970s, a time when many refineries...

Early Recognition of abnormal Wear Conditions

Residual abrasive contaminants in new process units can cause rapid wear of rider bands in reciprocating compressors. Those abnormal wear conditions can be detected at an early stage by continuously monitoring the proximity measures. As a result, costly damages to the compressors can be...
