Monitoring and online diagnostics of Rotating Equipment

Rotating Equipment forms the majority of production assets. Pumps, compressors and gearboxes are irreplaceable in the oil, gas and petrochemical industry.

Debottlenecking activities which bring redundant machinery online or simple machine aging are the reasons why permanent monitoring is more relevant than ever before to ensure machinery uptime and reliable production quota.

PROGNOST Systems arms operators around the world with technologies and services they really need to meet their targets. The latest upgrade of the market leading PROGNOST®-NT system comes with more than 180 analyses and views for centrifugal equipment diagnostics.

Orbit Full Spectrum view

This new analysis offers a toolset for the diagnosis of different types of malfunctions such as imbalance, rotor crack, partial rub/ full annular rub, fluid induced instabilities etc. Sometime it is hard to differentiate between two or more malfunctions, but the Full Spectrum helps to find the root cause.

Process Data listings

With Version 20, users are able to decide which process data shall be displayed.

  • Option 1: Decide which process data is displayed. Choose between “All process data”, only “Incomming” or “Outgoing process data”.
  • Option 2: Process data listings especially for monitoring system data. This list shows all relevant process values, for example “Temperature of the processor” of a specific monitoring system computer.

Trend from a Ring Buffer

Ring Buffer trend is now available by analyzing a period that could include up the complete ring buffer. After executing the command an analysis type need to be defined. This offers another valuable tool for the ring buffer analysis to get the best results out of 10 minutes of uncompressed data.

New analyses and damage patterns for rolling and sleeve bearings

These new damage patterns enable PROGNOST®-NT to assign the common failure modes of bearings automatically. The output is a clear text message that describes the failure mode, e.g. “Imbalance”, “Misalignment” or “Looseness”.
