|Publication Date:||1 September 2013|
This Practice describes the following:
a. Typical applications for continuous on-line monitoring of rotating equipment
b. Types of monitoring that could be provided and where they are typically applied
c. Installation considerations specific to type of monitoring equipment
d. General calibration and functional checkout considerations
e. Documentation recommendations Types of rotating equipment covered in this Practice include centrifugal compressors, centrifugal pumps, gears, steam turbines, gas turbines, electric motors and generators, and other shaft driven equipment.
This Practice does not cover anti-surge controllers, performance controllers, seal gas systems, and other equipment auxiliary systems.
This Practice provides guidance for the application of instrumentation to monitor rotating equipment for machinery protection, enhanced performance, and predictive maintenance.
