Detection

Progressed over a month



M-HAS alarmed at a site in July 2020. The system started to detect a fault developing around the start of June 2020 alarming on high vibration on the gearbox initially then shaft and frame.

The machine was stopped and the drive train scheduled for parts replacement and alignment adjustments made below. The system then reduced vibration levels.

This would have progressed to a very expensive set of replacement parts requiring a machine shop repair versus a simple up tower adjustment and parts replacement

Therefore the full cost of repair would have been significantly higher had these failures not been caught.
