The advantage of flexible reciprocating machines becomes a disadvantage when monitoring such machines. Changing load conditions will result in changing vibration behaviors, which will require the use of adaptable warning thresholds.

In this video, you will gain an understanding of the peculiarities involved in monitoring reciprocating compressors to detect changes at an early stage of development. We will discuss changing operating conditions, the automatic adjustment of warning thresholds, and the necessity of setting protection limits in relation to the machine’s limits.
