Avoiding outages and providing constant power supply are top priorities facing power plant operators every day. To keep plants operational and lower the risk of failure, machines must be reliable. Plant maintenance teams and reliability engineers depend on vibration analysis and diagnostics to establish baseline, trend and early warning/detection of machinery health.
For decades, Meggitt’s API670 5th edition compliant vibration analysis monitoring systems have been used to monitor the condition of valuable power plant assets and protect them. Our condition monitoring solutions are helping customers reduce unwarranted downtime, increase availability of machines and implement effective preventative maintenance programmes. Take a look at how they can help you too.
A few of the critical machines that need a 24/7 protection and management system in a typical coal-based thermal power plant:
|Turbine generator package||Boiler package||Auxiliaries|
|Steam turbine generators||Fans/blower||Cooling tower fans|
|Motor driven boiler feed pumps||Coal pulverisers||Fire system pumps|
|Turbine driven boiler feed pumps||Ash handling pumps||HT drives at coal handling system|
|Booster pumps||Induced draft fans||Compressors|
|Condensate extraction pumps||Forced draft fans||DM water pumps|
|Auxiliary cooling water pumps||Primary air fans||Raw/sea water pumps|
|Circulating water pump|
Special applications for power plants
Apart from the regular sensing solutions, we have developed a unique distributed monitoring system that can help you reduce the investment required in monitoring machines across large areas of a power plant. Ideal applications for coal / thermal power plants are boiler island machine like ID fans, FD fans, pulverisers, cooling tower fans, coal handling system drives and more.
