INDUSTRIAL RECIPROCATING COMPRESSOR

AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

Mechanical Looseness Case Study (2)

A Sensemore Wired was mounted on the reciprocating compressor, which is the driving tool of the HVAC system in a facility that performs the R&D and automotive tests. Compressors must operate continuously to perform and complete automotive tests. Reciprocating compressors vibrate a lot inherently, and if vibration levels are not monitored and controlled, they cause fast-developing failures and cause long-term downtimes.
