Continuous vibration measurements improve uptime

By Chemical Engineering |

The new 3561 FC vibration sensor (photo) improves uptime by adding remote, continuous vibration monitoring to virtually any rotating equipment. With a frequency range of 10 to 1,000 Hz, the 3561 FC detects and notifies users of conditional changes caused by critical faults, such as imbalance, misalignment, looseness and bearing wear, providing warning of impending equipment failure. The 3561 FC sensor is small enough to fit in hard-to-reach locations on equipment, and installation and setup are simple. The triaxial sensors deliver continuous measurements while the asset is in use, permitting maintenance technicians to remain at a safe distance, away from dangerous rotating equipment. — Fluke Corp., Everett, Wash.
