Stand-alone triggered rod drop monitoring system

Home Engineering Electronic - Instrumentation & Control Stand-alone triggered rod drop monitoring system

CONDITION monitoring company Istec has announced the world-wide availability of its rod drop monitoring system for reciprocating compressors.

It describes the the RecipSys 200 as a compact and modular monitoring system that delivers accurate real-time data of rider band wear, and eliminates the need for periodic shutdowns to do manual rider band wear inspections.

Istec said the transmitter-based system is affordable and extends the range of compressors that can be monitored. “After multiple successful pilot installations the RecipSys 200 is now globally available,” the company said in a statement.

“The increasing demand for machine availability and insights in critical parameters of both larger and smaller reciprocating compressors, made Istec break new grounds. The RecipSys 200 answers these market needs by delivering financially accessible, easy to use and stand-alone rod drop monitoring with extensive scalability and modularity options.”

The RecipSys 200 offers a flexible alternative for traditional and complex rack-based monitoring systems, which are not solely dedicated to rod drop monitoring. By using a phase triggered signal, as opposed to an overall signal, the transmitter-based system provides unparalleled accuracy and reliability.

“Extensive scalability options allow multiple modules to be connected for reciprocating compressors with multiple cylinders, making it suitable for any compressor configuration. Its modularity allows the system to be integrated with other systems that monitor critical mechanical parameters, such as temperature, vibration or impact.”
