Emer­son com­bines key main­te­nance tasks in a sin­gle tool for im­proved sav­ings and ef­fi­ciency

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS -

Emer­son Process Man­age­ment has en­hanced its por­ta­ble CSI 2140 Ma­chin­ery Health An­a­lyzer with a wire­less in­ter­face to pop­u­lar laser shaft align­ment tools. This ad­vance re­duces two bur­dens -- equip­ment and time – for op­er­a­tors per­form­ing vi­bra­tion anal­y­sis and cor­rec­tive tasks in the field. The CSI 2140 al­ready of­fers four-chan­nel plus phase data col­lec­tion to save time and ef­fort, ad­vanced vi­bra­tion anal­y­sis that em­beds ex­per­tise in the tool, and multi-plane bal­anc­ing to cor­rect im­bal­ance in in­dus­trial fans. By adding a wire­less link to laser fix­tures, Emer­son fur­ther stream­lines the work process. Us­ing the CSI 2140, per­son­nel can per­form route-based vi­bra­tion data col­lec­tion; an­a­lyse the root cause; and align the ma­chine – all in one trip. At the same time, they can iden­tify and solve ma­chin­ery faults to pre­vent any un­planned down­time. The shaft align­ment op­tion for the CSI 2140 uses the fa­mil­iar, in­tu­itive Emer­son in­ter­face to guide tech­ni­cians through a three-step process that quickly achieves pre­ci­sion align­ment. The laser fix­tures em­ploy a unique Sweep tech­nol­ogy to mea­sure mis­align­ment easily, even in tight clear­ance ap­pli­ca­tions. An ad­vanced op­tion mon­i­tors the cor­rec­tive ma­chine moves in ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal di­rec­tions si­mul­ta­ne­ously. All data col­lected with the CSI 2140 can be up­loaded wire­lessly to a sin­gle data­base us­ing the AMS Suite: Ma­chin­ery Health Man­ager soft­ware. This en­ables the main­te­nance team to col­lect data, an­a­lyse prob­lems, and doc­u­ment re­sults in par­al­lel.
