Sensors and condition monitoring for balance-of-plant applications

Helping you define your requirements and achieve a high quality solution

Balance of plant (BOP) equipment generally comprises a mix of critical and non-critical machines. One of the challenges that many organisations face is in defining the requirement and choosing the right technology for vibration monitoring and condition monitoring.

This is where Meggitt can help. For decades, we have been providing a range of high quality technologies from low-cost vibration transmitters to vibration switches. Our VM600 machinery protection system has been used to monitor critical BOP machines – along with our condition monitoring solutions. This combination provides our customers with the best tool to protect and manage the large number of assets.

Apart from the regular sensing solutions, we have developed a unique distributed monitoring system that can help you reduce your investment in monitoring machines across large areas of a plant. It is ideal for applications including boiler island machine such as ID fans, FD Fans, pulverisers, cooling tower fans and coal handling system drives.

  • Vibration monitoring: Key indicator of equipment health
  • Condition monitoring: Ensures constant peak performance for all rotating machinery, helps plan repairs, optimise maintenance outages, operate at peak performance, avoid damage, analyse/sustain machine life and reduce maintenance costs

These are some of the machines that, typically, our BOP solutions help with:

Fans/blowerCooling tower fans:
Coal pulverisersFire system pumps
Ash handling pumpsHT drives at coal handling system
Induced draft fansCompressors
Forced draft fansDM water pumps
Primary air fansRaw/sea water pumps
Gearboxes in belt conveyorsCirculating water pumps
Coal crushers
