The Gland steam system is one of the most important systems in the work of the steam turbine, that have function to prevents steam escaping to atmosphere from the HP end of the turbine, and loss of vacuum from the LP end.

Resonance in Industrial Plants, is a difficult problem to diagnose and at the same time, it’s a silent killer of machine uptime and Plant Reliability! The maintenance team probably won’t be asked to go out and correct the resonance problem. Instead, the Plant personnel will treat the symptoms of the resonance problem.

Incredible as it may seem, the vibration (or at least a large part of it) can be detected through video recording with incredible resolution. Saving a huge number of hours in studies that before were time consuming if not impossible to do. All of this using Vibration Tracking.
So, what is the Vibration Tracking? And better yet, what is it for?

A small number of semiconductor manufacturers have overcome the noise, bandwidth and g-Range shortcomings commonly associated with MEMS sensors used in Condition-based Monitoring (CbM) by producing several medium and high-performance MEMS vibration sensors with the latter being comparable to piezo accelerometers.

Whenever the natural frequency of a turbine tower meets the rotor or blade frequency, it oscillates. It has a resonance. How do we avoid it…
