Three reasons for choosing Integrated Blower Vibration Monitoring System
Online blower condition control for real-time information
Increased blower safety
Minimized risk of unexpected downtime from blower breaks
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.

This is what Glaston’s FC500 is providing for us, so that we can serve our market using the most professional equipment,” says Abdullah Al-Qabandi, General Manager of G.M Al-Hadi Glass Industries in Kuwait City, Subhan Industrial Area, Kuwait.Read more
