Measuring Vibration Data on Turbo Machinery

Reliability Maintenance Solutions Limited Stand: 4-F30
  • The CHP plant features a 25-megawatt steam turbine and a 45-megawatt gas turbine.
  • Both turbines are equipped with online vibration protection systems that monitor the shaft movement within a white metal lining.
  • The turbines utilise hydrodynamic bearings, also known as sleeve bearings or white metal bearings.
  • The turbines have X&Y probes that measure the gap between the probe tip and the shaft within the bearing, effectively measuring the movement of the shaft in free space.
  • The steam turbine shaft operates at 9,000 rpm.
