Industries

Marine

Sensonics partners with the marine industry supplying specialised instrumentation solutions for power turbine, engine and pump condition monitoring as well as seismic protection and event recording for dock side infrastructure.

Our sensors and systems are designed for marine applications and can be found monitoring bearing vibration, shaft vibration & position and rotational speed on turbines and pump plant.
Our seismic protection and recording equipment is used for the vibration monitoring of critical infrastructure. As the leading supplier of seismic monitoring and protection systems to the UK nuclear licenced sites we have solutions to meet with a diverse range of applications providing safe shutdown and recording facilities in the event of an earthquake.

Power Turbines and Pumps

Sensonics instrumentation offers both monitoring of the dynamic behaviour of rotating machines as well as providing the essential measurement interlocks for the smooth operation of power and pumping plant.
Our range of vibration sensors offers both piezoelectric and electrodynamic velocity sensing options for the measurement of bearing and casing vibration with operation up to 450°C. The Senturion X range of proximity probes comply with the API 670 standard and are suitable for vibration, shaft position and speed monitoring.
To provide the sensor signal conditioning our Sentry G3 supervisory system has tailored measurement algorithms for both steam and gas turbine applications. Critically offering SIL-3 over speed protection, which is a key requirement for marine applications.

Seismic

Structural vibration monitoring of dockside infrastructure is an essential protection requirement for nuclear licenced sites. Our equipment can be found providing seismic protection for cranes, lifting plant and other transportation systems.
Alarm management and event capture is achieved through our seismic sensors in combination with multichannel recording equipment providing time history, FFT and spectral response analysis.
Integrity and robustness is key to our system concept, with protected power supply configurations, custom indication panels, as well as 2 of 3 voted alarm processing suitable for safety critical applications.

Safety Systems

We are not just sensing experts providing condition monitoring for critical rotating machines and infrastructure, many of the systems we provide have a protective element for safe shutdown in the event of an excessive vibration or over speed occurrence (as an example).
For this reason many of our product lines can be provided with stated reliability backed up by field data with inbuilt facilities for proof testing.
Offering the complete design service we can supply vibration, position and speed protection systems to comply with IEC 61508 up to SIL-3.
