Critical Asset Monitoring

As hydro turbine health degrades, performance decreases, generation declines, and unplanned shutdowns are possible. 

Operating this machinery requires special load considerations and monitoring equipment designed for its unique needs.

Detecting underlying problems early and integrating machinery health data to process control allows you to correct issues before they affect your production. Emerson’s CSI technologies, supplied by Spartan, combine proven prediction and protection to provide a complete online machinery monitoring solution that addresses even the most complex hydro applications.

With continuous online monitoring for protection, prediction, and performance indicators, portable analyzers and advanced asset management capabilities, this solution will help you maintain and extend the life of your hydro turbine machinery. 

Vibration data collection and analysis is the accepted cornerstone to any predictive maintenance or reliability program. Emerson’s CSI 2140 takes those vibration measurements to the next level with simultaneous four-channel plus phase data collection and unique peak detection capabilities for the earliest indication of bearing and gearbox degradation.
