Reciprocating Machine Monitoring Device on CLOUD - VA-2 Portable Data Collector
Many monitoring systems available to the compressor industry, while sophisticated are either costly to install and maintain or require specialist manpower to collect data, process and analyse. ValveAlert is a new revolutionary easy to use, non-intrusive alternative. It is now possible for operators to equip themselves with the technology to identify problems before they occur, in a simple and affordable manner.
ValveAlert is an innovative handheld or on-line reciprocating compressor monitoring and analysis system, supported by its own unique software. ValveAlert is a simple, affordable and non-intrusive approach to detecting the mechanical condition of valves operating in reciprocating compressors, no matter where they are situated in the world. The handheld data collector is fitted with a sensor which will pick up Acoustic Emissions (AE) and temperature data. The sensor is attached to a quick release connector (bonded to the valve cover) and the data is easily gathered into the extremely user-friendly data collector. Once the data is collected and stored in the handheld unit, it is transferred to a computer and analysed with a single button press.
