Rightsize Your Approach to Recip MonitoringJanuary 12, 2022
5580 Signal Conditioner & SW5580 Dual Channel Switch
Until now, monitoring reciprocating compressors has not been for the faint of heart. At installed costs often exceeding $100,000 per throw, incumbent solutions – although very capable and comprehensive – have been cost-effective for only the most critical class of machines conforming to API 618 standards.
But what about other units such as those conforming to ISO-13631? In all likelihood, they’re under monitored or even unmonitored because historically, the economics simply haven’t penciled out.
Enter the Metrix 5580 smart signal conditioner and SW5580 dual channel switch. A fully configurable design means a single universal device can address various channel types including rod drop, frame vibration, impact, crosshead acceleration, as well as vibration, speed, and position measurements on the prime mover.
At installed costs of less than $10,000 per throw, the justification threshold for monitoring has been dramatically reduced – by a factor of 10X in some cases. Sensors, services, and a rightsized monitoring approach that leverages your existing control system’s monitoring capabilities.
