A Heritage of Excellence

Proximity transducers and monitors from Bently Nevada, a Baker Hughes business, have protected highly critical machinery at petrochemical and power generation facilities for over 5 decades.

Our long-standing tradition of excellence in asset protection and years of expertise combine to expand the capabilities of our rack-based 3500 solution, the ADAPT* distributed platform, and the 1900 and 2300 monitoring and protection systems. All of these solutions integrate directly to provide continuous, real-time condition monitoring via our System 1 software.

Wide Ranging Benefits

Whether generating power, compression and pumping fluids, or driving process equipment, Bently Nevada machinery protection systems monitor critical machinery every hour of every day.

In this demanding environment, machinery failure is not simply inconvenient - it can be financially catastrophic. While repair costs alone can be staggering, the partial or total loss of production resulting from a failure can mean millions of dollars per day, and change the overall profit and loss for a customer's entire year. 

Reliability and condition monitoring is more than just a good idea -- it is a necessity. Continuously monitoring critical asset parameters such as vibration, temperature, speed, and other relevant indicators is proven to anticipate and prevent mechanical failures.  This method has been proven in tens of thousands of industrial facilities worldwide, and Bently Nevada delivers these tangible benefits:

  • Intelligent, actionable insights for predictive maintenance via System 1 software
  • Less process interruptions
  • Improved protection from catastrophic failures
  • Cost savings in maintenance and repairs
  • Cost savings through reduced insurance premiums
  • Longer intervals between outages

Partnering for Customer Success

Recent case studies demonstrate the integrity and reliability of System 1 and the 3500 Series. One power generation facility saved $1 million, another petroleum refinery saving $5 million, a coal-fired plant with rotor degradation avoided 250 days of downtime, and an aeroderivative gas turbine was saved from improper water washing and subsequent rotor imbalance – all via Bently Nevada machinery protection.

Machinery Protection

Over 50 Years of Experience

Our online machinery protection systems have been protecting highly critical machinery at petrochemical and power generation facilities for over half a century.

Integration

Our online machinery protection systems work seamlessly with our System 1 software, as well as a Bently Nevada SSA.

Savings

The value of a Bently Nevada MPS has been demonstrated thousands of time in thousands of industrial facilities worldwide – when mission-critical machinery needs to me protected from a catastrophic failure, Bently Nevada is the proven leader.

Less Downtime

One of the many benefits of our MPS is that you can plan your maintenance outages – versus an unplanned one. This results in less downtime, longer intervals between outages, and an overall reduction in production loss.
