Vibration monitoring for oil and gas machines and equipment

Safely monitoring vibration on machinery operating in hazardous oil and gas operations, including offshore, petrochemical, refineries and chemical is a priority. Reliability engineers use vibration analysis/diagnostics to detect if there is a sign of a mechanical problem, monitor baseline/trend machinery health, and provide early warning of faults and potential damage. Wilcoxon's line of explosion-proof, intrinsically safe sensors designed for high-temperature environments are ideal for use in oil and gas applications.

Typical oil and gas machines/equipment where vibration monitoring products are used include

  • Blowers, centrifuge, chillers, compressors
  • Cooling towers, fans, gearboxes, mixers, motors, pumps
  • Reciprocating compressors, turbines, vibrating conveyors
