monitoring low speed machines January 2016

EFFECTIVE MONITORING ON LOW SPEED MACHINES

Slow speed rotating machinery (typically, less than 300 RPM) is commonplace in many industrial applications, for example; cooling towers, hydro-electric turbines and wind power generation. To ensure this type of machinery and plant is functioning at optimal levels it’s essential to measure vibration, as much as it is a critical requirement for standard speed machinery applications…

overspeed protection system April 2015

OVERSPEED PROTECTION SYSTEM FOR TURBINES AND PUMPS

Overspeed protection is a key requirement in the power generation industry where failure of the turbine or pump speed governing system can lead to rotor damage with expensive consequences. Independent speed monitoring and protection is therefore an essential requirement to minimise these risks as far as practicable.

INTELLIGENT PROTECTION FOR SMALLER CRITICAL ROTATING PLANT May 2014

INTELLIGENT PROTECTION FOR SMALLER CRITICAL ROTATING PLANT

The high cost of more sophisticated protection systems can be difficult to justify for monitoring smaller machinery operating on less critical applications, although the requirement for monitoring still needs to be addressed. The solution is cost-effective and compact machinery protection monitoring which is why we’ve developed our DN26 G3 protection monitor.
