Shock pulse and vibration monitoring optimize hoist reliability at Boliden
Originally published in "Asset Management and Maintenance Journal" 2014.
Shock pulse measurement and vibration analysis are both widely used for monitoring the condition of industrial equipment. The two complement each other perfectly, providing an ideal reliability solution for mining applications.
Redifining condition monitoring for low RPM / Fast learners
Originally published in "Marine Maintenance Technology Magazine" 2013.
In the maritime industry, many critical machines are low-speed applications that cannot be monitored with reliable results using conventional monitoring techniques. The SPM HD® method redefines the practice of condition monitoring on equipment running at low speeds.
Bearing monitoring keeps coal safely on the move
Originally published in "Maintenance Technology Magazine" March 2012.
In Amarillo, Texas, USA, energy-services provider Savage is successfully employing state-of-the-art online condition monitoring on a coal-conveyor system to help eliminate concern of equipment failure and ensure safe and uninterrupted supply of fuel to Xcel Energy’s Harrington Generating Station.
Successful solution to the challenge of low RPM bearing monitoring
Originally published in "Uptime Magazine" Feb/Mar 2011.
Low RPM applications have been notoriously difficult to monitor with traditional vibration- based techniques. The energy involved at RPMs below 50 is very low, making it a difficult task to extract meaningful information from the measured signal.
Refined SPM method saves money at Hallsta Paper Mill
Originally published in "Svensk Papperstidning" #4 2010.
Since April, 2009, Hallsta Paper Mill in Roslagen, Sweden has been engaged in a successful project together with SPM Instrument, where bearing condition has been measured on four twin wire presses using the SPM HD® measuring technique.
