Example of Machinery Condition Monitoring System using on natural gas compressors

System structure:
- Machine (gas turbine and compressor)
- Sensors (vibration, current, temperature, pressure, etc sensors)
- Marker
- Coupling amplifiers
- Automatized Diagnostic System (ASTD) module with Vibro-diagnostic Monitoring System CTD-3168 for data acquisition and processing

Accelerometers and proximeters are used as vibration sensors in this system. Sensors connected to Vibro-diagnostic Monitoring System CTD-3168 through coupling amplifiers. Current, temperature, pressure, etc also could be monitored if necessary. Number and position of accelerometers may vary. Coupling amplifiers mounted into the preamplifiers (PA). Preamplifiers and vibration sensors are available in intrinsically safe versions.

Vibro-diagnostic Monitoring System CTD-3168 continuously (0.1 sec interval) processes (through 16 bands) data from all sensors at once. Alert and danger settings presets for each channel band. Alarm is on, if vibration level at any channel is exceed. Connection to machine’s automatic control system is possible to provide its automatic shutdown. It is possible to watch machine condition right before shutdown using the “black box” function. “Black box” time interval is program adjustable. From CTD-3168 module data through RS-485 transfers to the PC for further processing. Through RS422 data can be transferred to Automatic Control System.
