Intelligent Machine Monitoring

“Intelligent Machine Monitoring” is a video production from experts for experts. Viewers learn basics of signal analyses as well as advanced topics to improve the results of their daily work. Enjoy the movies and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section. We are also open for your suggestions for topics to be explained and discussed.

Orbit plots for successful monitoring of rotating machinery

2020-09-03T15:06:55+02:0030. June 2020|Intelligent Machine Monitoring|

Monitoring the displacement of shafts in rotating machinery is mandatory to detect impending failures at an early stage. This tutorial describes how to generate Orbit plots and how to read them. This introduction of the orbit analysis will answer the following questions: How to read an Orbit plot?For what reason a Orbit plot can be used?How the Orbit plot is generated?What problems can be detected by using the Orbit plot? https://youtu.be/u3htuQEMjrc

During the video we will talk about the discharge and the suction phase of the pV diagram. What are the most typical differences to see in the signalDelay of the valve opening How to influence and how to react We will learn much about the compression cycle, different typical pV diagram characteristics, and common shapes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ST-6-iYiUoM

Displacement sensor and wear monitoring on reciprocating compressors

2020-06-05T09:39:19+02:005. November 2019|Intelligent Machine Monitoring|

As shown in previous movies there are different probes to monitor the compressor behavior. In the video we would like to talk about the proximity probe to monitor the vertical piston rod displacement. This probe is installed close to the packing and could be installed above or below the piston. Additionally a second probe per piston could be installed to monitor also the horizontal displacement. During the video we will talk about functionality and different analyses for this sensor signal.

Loads and forces affecting the condition of piston rods in recip compressors

2020-07-15T15:29:51+02:004. October 2019|Intelligent Machine Monitoring|

Major damages on compressors are based on rod load. For this reason engineers must understand the loads while selecting/using a reciprocating compressor

Video tutorial for valve monitoring of reciprocating compressors

2020-06-05T10:35:13+02:0017. May 2019|General, Intelligent Machine Monitoring, Multimedia library, News|

When watching this tutorial we will learn more about valve monitoring of reciprocating compressors. Jonas is showing us the main differences of the two monitoring techniques for valve monitoring. The first technique is cylinder vibration and the other one is dynamic pressure measurement. Jonas is explaining us on basis of a graph how it is done by using and combining these techniques. See how the signals are changing during the compression cycle from suction to dischargeUnderstand how the vibration monitoring is showing us the valve actions (closing and opening)Get information about indications for different valve failuresGain knowledge on how information about the process behaving is delivered by the pressure curves and the vibrationLearn why this is required to get a [...]
