Accelerometer measuring tool and sensors play a vital role in predictive maintenance for all forms of rotating equipment like pumps, fans, and motors. Like in the metals industry, our 4-20mA vibration transmitters protect vital assets, including rolling mills as well as cooling towers.
In the case of pharmaceuticals, vibration sensors protect the complete fan and motor assemblies in air handling units. Likewise, in wind power, our accelerometers prevent damage and keep turbines turning in all weathers.
While in marine applications, we monitor cargo pumps, turbochargers, azipods, and even ventilation fans to avoid machine failure and delays. Again in paper mills, our industrial accelerometers are built to withstand aggressive conditions for total reliability.
Similarly, in the mining and quarrying industry, MEC sensors may monitor a pump and even a crusher. In the food and packaging industry, our accelerometers monitor mixers, centrifuges, ovens, fans, as well as conveyors.
Finally, in the cement sector, our 4-20mA sensors are used in critical condition monitoring systems on crushers, mills, and silos.
A Recent Example?
Two weeks after a new pump was installed in a remote area, an accelerometer set the alarm off on a PLC, and as a result, the machine was found with a broken shaft.
What happens at the other end?
These sensors capture data locally or remotely using a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), Building Management Systems (BMS), or 4-20mA input modules. Our company has a comprehensive range of cables, connectors, and accessories to make installation and operation quick and simple.
Sturdy and built to last, our vibration sensors and systems deliver precision measurements time after time, under the most demanding conditions. MEC vibration sensors help our customers improve the reliability, performance, and profitability of their manufacturing and process systems. If more information, click here
