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 petrochemical plants.
Brüel & Kjær Vibro (B&K Vibro) recently worked with a customer where the existing protection systems were not always detecting the machine fault in advance. This led to a complete outage in their petrochemical plant.
Listen to Glenn’s story about how our free trial program helped this customer to detect a problem using our VC-8000 protection and condition monitoring solution. During a free two-week trial installation, B&K Vibro’s VC-8000 detected the condition change in time, while the existing legacy system missed it completely. Our VC-8000 didn’t just detect the fault early on, it’s also very easy to set up and integrate into an existing monitoring system. However, the biggest advantage is that everything can be done without any disruption in service. The system is easy to install and we offer full service and support during the trial period. Our customer’s success is our success!
