Cooling Towers

Cooling tower fans operate under different load conditions and often only run at peak load for short periods. With differing stresses over a prolonged period, the mechanical components can develop degraded performance, which leads to failure. The stucture of a cooling tower makes collecting vibration data on the gearbox difficult and dangerous without permanently installed sensors. Because the gearbox is a typical failure point, lack of feedback on the machine’s health puts you at risk for unexpected failure.
