Experience With Periodic Vibration Monitoring In Fossil Power Stations.
MetadataShow full item record
Results are presented from data obtained from the cumulative experience of eight utilities which are conducting periodic, computer based predictive maintenance (PM) programs at their fossil stations. These programs are utilizing a new generation of PM instrumentation that significantly reduces the cost of conducting a program, while improving fault detection effectiveness. A description of the PM program results being achieved is highlighted and some cost/benefit data is presented. Finally, specific monitoring recommendations are presented for boiler feed pumps on information extracted from machinery databases acquired from the participating utilities and monitoring experiences of the authors.
