The partial or even total loss of production resulting from critical machinery failure – sometimes worth millions per day – can mean the difference between profit and loss for the entire year. With so much at stake, mechanical condition monitoring is more than just a good idea, it’s a necessity.
With more than two million transducers and monitoring channels installed worldwide and more than 10,000 software solutions employed across the globe, more end users trust their machinery to Bently Nevada* continuous monitoring systems than anyone else.
Today, although our products number in the thousands, we never rest. Each year, tens of millions of dollars are invested in expanding and improving our technology with the purpose of better serving our customers. Better technology that creates better value is our passion.
Protecting your critical machinery with the 3500 is an important step. But there’s more to effective asset management than just protection. The 3500 system also serves as a fully functional gateway to Baker Hughes' powerful System 1* software, allowing totally proactive condition monitoring and in-depth diagnostics. Move beyond just protecting your machinery to proactively managing it. You’ll turn unplanned outages into manageable, planned maintenance downtime.
Industries that rely on mission-critical machinery choose our condition monitoring
Our approach to condition monitoring delivers top-quality digital signal processing, networked communications and analytic software in order to keep your critical machinery operating in peak condition. This system integrates seamlessly into our machinery protection series to monitor and manage mission-critical data which is then fed to our flagship System 1* software platform, where you can easily and accurately assess all the data on your plant-wide collection of machinery.
Customers praise the program’s integrity, reliability and ease-of-use coupled with a diverse selection of options. Acclaimed by users over decades, our Condition Monitoring program has enabled one power generation plant to save 1$ million, a petroleum refinery $5 million, and a coal-fired plant to cut 250 days of downtime. In short, condition monitoring by Bently Nevada, a Baker Hughes business, saves your organization a lot of lost revenue.
We invite you to explore a diverse assortment of options in our extensive product portfolio that includes motion sensors, portable devices, vibration analyzers, data collectors, and much more.
The vbOnline Pro provides automated, user-scheduled monitoring of an asset’s health. It is a flexible and scalable system fully supported by the next evolution of Baker Hughs' System 1* condition monitoring and diagnostics software. The system assists in the early detection of machinery and process problems. The vbOnline Pro provides economic vibration monitoring for mid- and low-level criticality assets. The device is easy to install and configure.
Trendmaster Pro is an innovative online condition monitoring system that links hundreds of permanently mounted transducers and measurement points to a single-cable sensor network and transmits the data to our System 1* software.
AnomAlert* Generator Anomaly Detector continuously identifies existing and developing faults on three-phase AC generators and their prime movers, effectively using the generator itself as a sophisticated transducer. The AnomAlert Generator Anomaly Detector utilizes an intelligent, model-based approach to provide anomaly detection by simply measuring the generator current and voltage. It is permanently mounted, generally in the generator control center.
Our Wind Turbine Condition Monitor provides integrated condition monitoring for wind turbine drive trains and merges with System 1* software to recognize trends, provide alarming, and offer deeper analysis and diagnostic capabilities.
