Alphatec Engineering has released a free white paper on the Hydrocarbons-Technology website.
Process plants around the world depend on millions of rotating machines: compressors, pumps, blowers, fans, presses, generators, mills, mixers, and so on through a long list. The maintenance department is generally pretty busy keeping these machines together, repairing them, and making sure they are available for production.
The diagnostics of machine problems have been steadily improving since the electronics revolution, and catastrophic failures are getting fewer every year. Yet, there is still a gap between the sophisticated diagnosis of vibration and alignment issues, and the understanding of how best to solve intractable and recurrent problems.
