Andy Anthony, Managing Director of Monitran, explains how vibration and temperature condition monitoring are protecting a new biomass rail load-out system.
Biomass power stations have much in common with those that burn coal and oil, in that they can quickly generate power in order to meet fluctuations in demand
Condition-based predictive maintenance (CBPM) is becoming increasingly popular within many industries as a practical and cost-effective means of protecting pumps, motors, gearboxes and other machinery. But of all parameters that might be monitored as part of a CBPM strategy vibration is arguably the most useful - advises Andy Anthony, Managing Director of Monitran.
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.
