Condition monitoring specialist, Sensonics, reports new contracts both at home and in Asia for its Sentry G3 high performance machine protection system....
At the PhaLai Thermal Power Plant in Vietnam, in conjunction with local agents AKA Vietnam, Sensonics supplied transducers and a Sentry G3 Turbine Monitoring/ protection system for the 110MW Russian built turbine at the plant.
The system automatically shuts down the turbine if the relative position moves outside a pre-set window. For the 110MW machine, this occurs should the shaft move towards the generator side by more than 1.2mm or when the shaft moves towards the turbine side by more than 1.7mm.
The measurement was imple - mented on the turbine utilising proximity sensors mounted opposite a collar machined as part of the shaft.
