New generation condition monitoring
22 October 2013
Condition monitoring specialist, Sensonics has been part of a major project involving the relighting of the blast furnace at the SSI steelworks in Redcar, on Teeside, following a major upgrade of the facility’s turbo-blowers control systems.
The new Sensonics system comprised a total of 15 sets of Senturion proximity probes monitoring a range of functions on each turbo blower, including relative shaft vibration, rotational speed and thrust positions.
The protection system comprised a 19in rack-mounted Sentry G3 system retrofitted into the existing floor standing panel, along with 16 channels of relative shaft vibration monitoring.
