Getting insights on the mechanical behaviour of turbines to drive higher machine availability

Challenge

How to get more insights on the mechanical behaviour of turbines and other critical rotating equipment? How to predict maintenance needs and drive higher machine availability with lower running costs?

Solution

With our full service approach (Istec Response™), we supported AVR in selecting, implementing and maintaining advanced systems to collect critical vibration data. On a monthly basis our dedicated team of vibration experts analyse the data and provide extensive reports that enable more effective maintenance.

Deliverables

  • Full scope supply and support of vibration monitoring hardware
  • Periodic data analysis by leading vibration experts
  • Responsive support and trouble shooting if needed
  • Extensive reporting on mechanical behaviour and machine condition
  • Accurate insights for predictive maintenance strategies

Impact

Advanced machine condition insights ensure maximal value generation of AVR’s most critical rotating machinery by increasing uptime, improving maintenance efficiency and prolonging the operational life cycle.
