OpsWatch

The vibration of equipment or products during the transportation is inevitable. Due to vibrations, machinery often loses its calibration, which triggers problems downstream. The low-frequency vibrations cause problems in a variety of machinery and equipment such as rotary screw compressors, pipes, off and onshore drilling rigs top drives, conveyor belt drives, wastewater treatment plant equipment, etc.

The monitoring of vibration is a vital component of machine maintenance and monitoring programs. All equipment having belts, bearings, gears, drive motors, and other moving parts experience vibrations as a regular part of their function. The OpsWatch helps to monitor vibrations of equipment at premises or during transportation. It provides early alerts and streams data based on conditions to the central operational unit using a web-hosted platform through Wi-Fi.

The real-time monitoring of vibration visualises and instantly identifies the equipment’s changes due to the low-frequency levels. This advanced unit provides excellent monitoring and alerts whenever the vibration is outside the specified range.

With the use of OpsWatch, maintenance professionals can learn about equipment failure even before it happens. It helps in preventing unexpected breakdowns and various other failures that follow.

The sampling rate of OpsWatch ranges between 1,000 and 5,000 times/second. It quickly works between the temperature range of -22°F and 185°F and records vibrations as low as 1Hz. This means it operates even in the harshest environments.
