If best scenario had played out there would have been additional cost savings of $ 2.8 Million This case study illustrates how PROGNOST®-Predictor detected impacting in the time waveform of the gear pump along with a ticking sound coming from the gearbox. Sequence of Events 3/22/2018 at 9:30:00 am: PROGNOST Systems received message from customer who was concerned that they heard a ticking coming from Gear Pump gearbox. Customer was asked to look at the time waveform on one of the sensors near the ticking and we found a very strong impacting happening that was very concerning. 9:38:00 am – Customer sent a screenshot of time waveform which showed a large amount of impacting that he had found. This impacting [...]

Time vs Frequency domain signal analyses

2020-06-05T10:03:18+02:0021. December 2018|Intelligent Machine Monitoring, Multimedia library, News|

What is the relationship between time domain and frequency domain in terms of basic parameters? We will answer this question in the next 18 minutes and provide you some expert advice for vibration analyses. The second part of this episode will focus on the correct rules to capture a fruitful time signal. You will learn how to compare and make correct settings so you should not miss any frequency of interest. https://youtu.be/WgRJGXJxZ9o

Why segmented vibration analyses is superior

2020-06-05T10:38:22+02:0019. December 2018|About PROGNOST Systems, Intelligent Machine Monitoring, Multimedia library, News|

Why radial and piston compressors each require special analyses for vibration monitoring? Because both machine types have very different operating principles. The main difference is that the vibration signature of reciprocating machinery is marked by regular peaks that occur during each revolution. These peaks come from mechanical impacts such as valve opening and closing. That means, for reciprocating compressors reoccurring vibration amplitudes are good. As opposed to rotating machinery, where a flat vibration reading is good and vibration amplitudes are bad. With this basic understanding of vibration origin and signatures, it is obvious that both machines types require dedicated monitoring strategies. For reciprocating compressors, the unique segmentation of vibration monitoring proved to be a reliable way to detect impending failures [...]
