Three reasons for choosing Integrated Blower Vibration Monitoring System

Online blower condition control
The Glaston Integrated Blower Vibration Monitoring System upgrade has been developed for online blower condition control to check that blower vibration stays within set limits. Regular maintenance and constant monitoring of the blowers are important to ensure uninterrupted production.
This upgrade minimizes the risk of unexpected downtime caused by possible blower breaks. Each blower is equipped with a vibration sensor that allows online data monitoring. The system constantly measures the blower vibration. If any abnormal vibration is detected, the system alerts the operator via the user interface. The blower will stop automatically if the vibration is too high.
