Early Automatic Online Failure Detection of a fractured Piston Rod leads to Shutdown

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 damages have been avoided.
