RECIPROCATING COMPRESSOR & ENGINE ANALYSIS
INTEGRATING MULTIPLE TECHNOLOGIES
Advanced technology to monitor Reciprocating equipment utilizes multiple sensor technologies and collects data degree-by-degree with respect to crank-angle. This phased, crankshaft referenced data is collected from various measurements points including:
in-cylinder Pressure measurements for PV Analysis
Vibration on the frame, crosshead and cyliner
Ultrasonic on the valves and injectors
Proximity of rod movement and
angular Velocity of the crankshaft
enabling a comprehensive examination of internal components.
By synchronising the position of crankshaft & resultant piston position throughout the stroke, and then plotting a once-per-degree resolution, the system enables all internal mechanical events like Valve opening and closing to be visualised.
Thus in addition to Performance & Economic analysis like power production/consumption, gas throughput & efficiency, our proprietary analyzers and diagnostic software can accurately identify mechanical condition of machinery, diagnosing problems like:
Leaking / damaged Valves, Piston Rings
Liner/Piston wear, damaged Rider Bands
Loss of Crosshead Integrity
Uneven Engine Balance
Poor Combustion quality
and other abnormalities in Compressors and Engines
