PROGNOST Systems offers the world´s leading technologies for gapless and automated diagnoses of Rotating Equipment. Deep Learning methods such as Neural Networks combined with Fuzzy Logic provide real-time and self-learning failure pattern detection of critical assets.
This system is proven reliable and supports all global players in the refining, gas- and petrochemical industry for more than 25 years.

Our systems provide actionable information instead of data, based on:

  • Accurate, intelligent, and powerful machinery analyses and protection based on 25 years of experience
  • Proven reliable with installations worldwide on all types of critical rotating equipment
  • Global customer support and sales network
  • 24/7 customer support

We define “Intelligence on Duty” by using this philosophy either way: the permanent integration of user requirements and practical experience leads to state-of-the-art technology. This continuous improvement process ensures that PROGNOST products and services will continue to meet the ever increasing expectations of our users.

We will help you assess the profitability of a PROGNOST® installation based on your own machine and operation data. In most cases, the purchase price is recovered within just a few months. We guarantee a realistic review, based on real-world data, accumulated from hundreds PROGNOST® installations worldwide.


PROGNOST®-NT is the world’s leading diagnostic system that uses Neural Networks and Deep Learning technology for automated Failure Pattern Recognition of Rotating Equipment. More than 20.000 sensor samples per second are analyzed automatically in real-time. The system provides actionable clear text messages to operators, indicating the affected components, the failure mode and the percentage of failure severity.


PROGNOST®-Predictor uses the patented Confidence Factor and Two Factor alarm logic to detect failures in Roller Bearings and complex gearboxes. Combining all of the PROGNOST®-Predictor capabilities results in optimal health of your machine and supports you to get your Preventive Maintenance becomming Predictive Maintenance management.

ACCOMPL!SHED – Selected project specialities

A collection of remarkable engineering and commissioning projects Anyone who decides to introduce a condition monitoring system begins an extensive project. Because it is not only the technology itself that determines the success of the project, but also the customer-specific design, installation and commissioning. On the basis of some interesting examples we would like to […]

LDPE Company avoided cost, by trusting Condition Monitoring

A LDPE company in the US avoided costs of 250 M for line cleanings, labor and lost production. They made use of deep diagnosis by the PROGNOST®-NT online condition monitoring system. Both Hyper/Secondary compressors (commissioned 1976) have been equipped with a monitoring system. In 2005, the customer decided to replace the existing system with the latest PROGNOST®-NT online condition monitoring technology.

Old monitoring system

This system monitored process pressures and temperatures, lube oil pressures and temperatures, main bearing temperature, plunger proximity (x/y). In 2002, the customer added impact monitors to the system. Both machines have a failure history which starts with main and connecting rod bearing failures (resulted in crankshaft damage).

Early, Automatic, Online Failure Detection

In December 2007, the online monitoring system avoided a major and cost-intensive damage at one compressor. The permanent piston rod position monitoring detected a cracked respectively a virtually broken piston rod at the 1st stage. Prior to a complete rod failure, the machine had been automatically stopped and costly consequential…

Reciprocating compressors

Purpose and terminology of condition monitoring systems for recips

The only way to ensure safe, reliable, efficient and economical operation of reciprocating compressors is to monitor them continuously and to take appropriate action based on the information the monitoring systems provide. That simple objective, however, is difficult to put into practice. The variety of instruments, systems and methodologies for…

Bridging the Gap

In the process industry, it is still common that users strictly separate machine protection equipment from condition monitoring. Machine operators frequently face a time-consuming troubleshooting based on minimum diagnostic data e.g. from the DCS system. For many years, flight data recorders have been a common standard in the aviation industry…

Abrupt Failures Demand Automatic Shutdown

Modern, online diagnostic and monitoring systems are great things to have for safe and reliable machinery operation. Condition based maintenance, increase of uptime, efficient repairs and short MTTR with maximum MTBM – all these concepts and goals can be realized with state-of-the-art technologies and services.

Misalignment of a Gearbox

The PROGNOST®-Predictor was showing several impacts in the tie waveform of a 24' Raymond gearbox. This was a first indication of a tooth problem on one of the gears. After several other analysis work the failure was localized and later findings inside of the gearbox showed the high accuracy of…
