Aluminium Processing Plant
Vibration Monitoring System for Cold Rolling Mills and Tension Leveler
Quality is certainly money in the Aluminium processing business. So, when a process was causing a critical vibration it was a major issue for one of the leading Aluminium process plant in the Middle East.
The iba system provides a state-of-the-art condition and vibration monitoring system. Since this system was installed many critical downtimes were avoided.
Correlating vibration data and machine data
by using one data acquisition system only
into an existing Condition Monitoring Program
Process data cannot be excluded when doing a critical evaluation fo any process plant. In this case the data recording is performed by a ibaPDA System while the process analysis is performed on collected data with the ibaAnalyzer.
The vibration monitoring however is performed on distributed edge devices. After acquiring the vibration data from accelerometers, the ibaPDA add-on ibaInSpectra is used to analyze this data. The ibaInSpectra utilizes a frequency band analysis. Consequently machine, process and product data is used to eliminate quality problems related to vibration of the system.
""The ibaInSpectra Condition Monitoring solution allows Aluminum processing operators to easily monitor its entire production motors with gears and predict their maintenance needs.""
