Monitoring the condition of machinery is a practical means of protecting plant and equipment against unexpected failure, and of all conditions that might be monitored vibration levels and temperatures (or rather changes in one or both) often provide the earliest indication that maintenance is necessary. Furthermore, monitoring conditions continuously not only protects plant that needs to run 24/7 but it can also be the foundation of your Condition-Based Predictive Maintenance (CBPM) strategy.
Whilst there are several ways to measure displacement, the Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) remains the de facto transducer in most industrial applications. Andy Anthony, Managing Director of Monitran, discusses why the sensor type remains so popular.
As an OEM of sensors we have seen our LVDT sales figures increasing steadily during recent decades; even during economic downturns. This we can only attribute to the continued popularity of this well-established, rugged and reliable transducer technology.
Monitran launches the MTN/2285STC - a combined velocity and temperature sensor with 4-20mA range outputs for industrial monitoring applications
High Wycombe, United Kingdom – Monitran, an industry leader in the development and manufacture of sensors and condition monitoring systems has launched the MTN/2285STC.
Monitran to showcase its MTN/5000 condition monitoring system at SENSOR+TEST 2015
High Wycombe, United Kingdom – Monitran, an industry leader in the development and manufacture of sensors and condition monitoring systems is to make its debut appearance at SENSOR+TEST 2015; running between 19th and 21st May, in Nürnberg, Germany.
Condition monitoring is essential if you wish to develop an understanding of the health and efficiency of a particular machine or process. Moreover, if the machine or process involves the use of motors, gearboxes or other moving parts, of all parameters that might be monitored vibration is arguably the most useful. Andy Anthony, Managing Director of Monitran, explains why and provides examples.
