Machine protection is mandatory if you want to avoid catastrophic machine damage and expensive production losses. An effective protection solution will evaluate several machine parameters to shut the machine down only when necessary to protect the machine and its environment.
Early warnings based on vibration measurements correlated with operational and environmental conditions are vital to optimize uptime and machine maintenance strategies.
This is exactly what you will find in the machine protection solutions from Brüel & Kjær Vibro – as our industrial client or OEM customer. Our systems are based on decades of expertise in vibration measurement for rotating machinery.
Our machine protection philosophy is based on the combination of sensitive pre-alarms and fast shut-down in line with international standards (ISO/DIN 10816 and API 670). The broad range of systems available ensures we deliver dedicated and cost-effective solutions for balance-of-plant machines and large-scale machinery.
Brüel & Kjær Vibro’s long-term experience in protecting rotating equipment is based on many thousands of applications in:
- The oil, gas and petrochemical industry
- Power generation (large thermal and hydroelectric power plants)
- Many other industries, including mining, steel, cement, maritime, pulp and paper and numerous manufacturing companies
Powerful measurement and communication capabilities allow for easy integration into customers’ process control systems. Our protection systems also serve as sensor signal acquisition and conditioning units for plant-wide condition monitoring solutions.
Quality monitoring solutions customized for each application – for both critical and balance-of-plant machinery.
