Case Study

Hydrocarbon Engineering – Beyond Double-Checking

You may not think about this in your day-to-day routine. However, did you know that those innocent-looking low-density polyethylene (LDPE) bags you get in your grocery store are actually created under some of the most extremely harsh operating conditions found in a petrochemical process? For instance, there is a lot of pressure. 2000 bar pressure […]

Accurate Machine Diagnostics Improved The Reliability Of Compressor Stations

Mark Hullinger, an experienced rotating engineer at Williams, worries about the aging legacy monitoring systems for his 15 compressor stations. If just one of his gas-fired engines or reciprocating compressors goes down unexpectedly, there will be severe consequences for delivering gas. Therefore, Mark’s team made an important decision to replace the obsolete systems with a […]

Unique Monitoring Strategy for the Unique Huntly Power Station

Huntly Power Station, the largest thermal power station in New Zealand, is located just outside of Auckland. Huntly is very similar to other coal and gas-burning power stations, except that the turbo-generators are mounted on a flexible steel support structure. This provides safety in case of an earthquake but makes condition monitoring challenging. Unique Challenges […]

Early Fault Detection in Petrochemical Plants

Early Fault Detection in Petrochemical Plants One of the greatest challenges in a petrochemical plant is an unplanned shutdown or outage. This often results in lost production and higher costs for many companies. Therefore, large investments in Machinery Protection Systems are often necessary to prevent unplanned downtime. This is especially true for critical assets in […]

Angarsk Nitrogen Fertilizer Plant in Russia

Managing Critical Machines   Faced with challenging maintenance issues, the Angarsk Nitrogen Fertilizer plant decided to adopt a unique and technologically advanced machine condition monitoring strategy at their plant in Russia. After careful deliberation, they opted for the Brüel & Kjær Vibro VC-8000 SETPOINT® system! The system is fully operational now. It includes an automatic […]

VC-8000 SETPOINT CMS finds another monitoring niche in the greener environment industry

By Michael Hastings, Senior Applications Engineer Brüel & Kjær Vibro’s machine condition monitoring solutions are involved in a lot of green industrial environment projects. For example, renewable energy, green ethylene production, combined cycle energy production, and refining clean-burning fuel. It is the latter where our VC-8000 SETPOINT CMS has recently been implemented in a large […]

VIBROPORT 80 Case Study

Vibroport 80 case study: To save costs respectively increase the production volume of molds, the manufacturing time needed to be reduced. This could be achieved for example by milling at a higher speed as well as by increasing the feed motion of all milling machine axes in the x-y-z directions. Accordingly, the unbalance force (due [...]

Monitoring The World’s Largest Green Ethylene Plant

Monitoring The World’s Largest Green Ethylene Plant High profile project requires effective monitoring Compass 6000™ was selected for monitoring this state-of-the-art plant when it was commissioned in 2010. Braskem, the largest petrochemical producer in the Americas and the fifth largest in the world by production capacity, built the green ethylene plant in the existing Triunfo [...]
