Condition monitoring of reciprocating compressors
Condition monitoring for new and retrofit machinesSKF condition monitoring systems for reciprocating compressors includes three main components – sensors; data acquisition systems; and operator interfaces. These systems can be fitted as retrofits, but also can be done on new machines.
Sensor measurements may be taken in a reciprocating compressor application for each cylinder. By analyzing common problems experienced in the past as well as the available access to transducer locations, SKF helps decide which measurements to take. The data is then acquired through an identified route, and then made available for analysis.
