Monitoring of Rolling Element Bearings (Part 1)

2021-01-07T15:36:31+01:00Intelligent Machine Monitoring|

Tutorial for understanding the important basics of rolling element bearing monitoring. Learn what BPFO, BPFI, 2BS and FTF mean and how to detect impending bearing failures. The basis are time waveform readings from acceleration sensors that need to be transformed into FFT spectra with the specific frequency components.

Displacement sensor and wear monitoring on reciprocating compressors

2021-01-07T15:38:42+01:00Intelligent 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.
