Two of our colleagues from Customer Service completed a 3-day PROGNOST®-NT Advanced user training for an oil refinery. During the last session they reviewed piston rod position orbit plots from an event where PROGNOST Systems Customer Support picked up a piston ring failure.
The colleagures shut down the machine with piston rod protection limits before any further damage occurred, ultimately saving the customer time and money. It was a very good training, a great customer. And the machine had some anomalies that we could analyze together.
Finally, the piston ring fragments, which deflected the piston strongly. This unsafe condition was put to an end by the monitoring system only, nobody recognized it. Fortunately, because what would have happened next? If you want to know more just contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
