Vibration & Condition Monitoring Systems

Design and Installation Services

Whatever your machinery – turbo-machinery, reciprocating machinery, and balance of plant equipment – you need accurate condition data to effectively maintain & protect that equipment. Monitoring systems must provide the right information, from the right transducers, and in the right format. Factors such as bearing design, machine geometry, shaft speed, and your budget, all influence the system design. We strive to ensure the right information is provided as efficiently & economically as possible.

We offer a full range of professional Design and installation Services for all types of machinery and measurement systems, including:

  • New systems – turnkey design and installation
  • Upgrading existing / old systems
  • Hardware procurement
  • Electrical and mechanical design packages
  • Subcontractor management
  • Transducer calibration & verification

Our experience comes from many years of project work at Bently Nevada Corporation, a company that demanded ‘quality-first’ in its installations. We continue that tradition with our professional, cost effective installations.

Turbine Supervisory Instrumentation (TSI) Systems

TSI systems for critical machinery provide dedicated monitoring of vibration & other parameters for continuous protection and automated shutdown. We have the knowledge and expertise to design and install your system to the highest standards while exceeding Industry Best Practices. Typical systems can include the following:

  • Shaft & bearing cap vibration
  • Rotor thrust (axial position)
  • Differential expansion
  • Casing expansion
  • Valve position
  • Bearing & oil temperatures
  • Rotor speed
  • Overspeed protection

Vendor Systems Provided & Serviced include:

  • Bently Nevada – all systems – 3500, Adapt, and System 1
  • Metrix – Setpoint
  • Rockwell – Allen Bradley
  • Emerson / CSI – 6500
  • Meggit, SKF, Shinkawa, Vibrometer & others
Balance of Plant Equipment

For balance of plant equipment, we have many options for measuring & trending vibration data. Depending on the application and location, system options include:

  • Proximity, velocity & accelerometer transducers with local “mini” monitors
  • 4-20 mA Output transducers for direct input to plant control systems
  • Wireless transducer options for remote / difficult access locations

In addition to system design & installation, M&B also provides a full range of system calibration & verification services, and monitoring systems training. Please contact us for more information.
