$1 million in lost production and unplanned outages were avoided when the System 1 Decision Support* Dry Gas Seal RulePak identified and reported multiple significant events at an offshore platform in the North Sea. System 1 benefits include increased availability and reliability, with decreased maintenance costs and lost production revenues.
BHGE’s Bently Nevada* has a Supporting Service Agreement (SSA) with a customer in the Middle East. The agreement includes regular software and hardware maintenance aimed at improving data availability and quality, as well as ongoing Machinery Diagnostic Services dedicated to proactive monitoring of hundreds of critical machine trains. The customer’s machinery assets are monitored by one of the largest installed bases of System 1 and associated Bently Nevada software and hardware in the world.
System 1 Condition Monitoring Platform
Monitor your entire plant with one program
Since its launch in 2001, Bently Nevada’s flagship software platform System 1 has won accolades from process-intensive industries around the globe.
Its simple and intuitive interface enables your team to create, manage and fully leverage your plant-wide machinery condition monitoring programs. Our software engineers continuously upgrade System 1’s capabilities, which include: greater predictive maintenance, extended equipment lifecycle, enhanced cyber security, wider diagnostic expectations, and a comfortable and easy to navigate user experience for both engineers and IT professionals.
System 1 upgrades adhere to a bi-annual release rhythm that updates user-driven improvements, expands connectivity and reinforces compliance with the most recently updated operating systems and security patches.
Collect data from machinery with seamless connectivity to a comprehensive list of online, scanning and portable condition monitoring devices and sensors. Integrates with other systems and devices with standard industrial software connectors and exporters.
Analyze machinery data in real-time and store at sub-second resolution with embedded high-speed historian. Precisely control data collection and storage rates for time-series and waveform data based on machinery operating state, alarm condition, and connected device(s).
Implement flexible system architectures to enable broad access to machinery and process data while adhering to current stringent cybersecurity best-practices. Transfer data from process network to business network or hosted solution through uni-directional gateways (diodes) or traditional firewalls.
Cyber Asset Protection (CAP) Patching Service – monthly operating system patches and anti-virus/intrusion detection signatures for System 1 servers.
Drive a proactive machinery monitoring strategy by detecting changes in condition before operational surprises with a library of software calculated analytics, state-based alarming, and flexible notification templates. Curate program with alarm management, diagnostic reporting, and case history tracking for each machine.
Perform detailed real-time and historical vibration based diagnostics with a comprehensive set of plot visualizations and analysis tools specifically designed to enable fault identification and facilitate corrective action decision-making.
Monitor turbines, pumps, and compressors with an online thermodynamic analytics module that calculates a broad set of actual and expected performance parameters. Calculations are derived using first principle thermodynamic equations and can be trended over time and plotted against their respective performance maps.
Enhance condition monitoring program by writing analytics based on data collected and stored within System 1 database. Leverages domain knowledge and machinery experience.
Combines mechanical and process data, vibration diagnostics and monitoring for faults that can manifest in components such as rotors, bearings, lube oil and sealing systems.
Combines mechanical and process data, vibration diagnostics and monitoring for faults that can manifest in components such as crankshaft, cross heads, cylinders, valves and rider bands.
Combines mechanical and process, vibration diagnostics and monitoring for faults that can manifest in components such as electrical, rotors, bearing, seals and general processes.
Enhances machinery monitoring capability with additional diagnostic HMI screens for machine overview and sub systems, first outs and start permissive.
