System Controls

A new family of central controls for industrial compressed air systems can be customized to your company’s needs, eliminating waste and offering savings on your energy bill and a short pay back period. The X-Series System Automation Package, introduced by Ingersoll Rand, is offered through Process & Power, Inc.

Central control of your air compressors creates efficiency and cost savings. The versatile and innovative Ingersoll Rand X-Series System eliminates wastes by efficiently managing up to twelve compressors. In the past, Lee Majors explained, capabilities now found in the X-Series would have required a custom engineered system that could easily have cost four to five times what this central-control system costs.

Some of the many benefits of the X-Series:

  • Sold in modules, the X-Series can be customized for each customer’s needs. You don’t have to pay for features you don’t need or can’t use.
  • It can be applied with any manufacturer’s air compressors or a combination of brands.
  • The X-Series handles different types of controls, including VFD-controlled compressors. This capability often is available only with very expensive control systems.
  • The system receives input from other instrumentation, including flow meters, dew point meters and compressed air dryers.
  • The Visualization module option provides Ethernet access with its own IP address. Through your web browser, you can observe what’s happening in your compressed air system, and on an administrative level, you can make changes.
  • The X-series has the capability to send you an email alert upon a warning or alarm in the system.

Process & Power can provide local support for installation and training on the X-series, eliminating the need to get expensive help from elsewhere. Industries interested in a free evaluation of whether the X-Series can help their operation save money can contact Lee Majors at lmajors@pnpmail.com or 800-264-8939.

Achieve Success in Shock Pulse Monitoring

"

The Northampton Generating station is a 120MW solid fuel power generation plant. The facility moves solid fuel with conveyors into silos for storage. Conveyor reliability is critical to the operation of the entire plant. No fuel, no power. There are about a dozen critical belt conveyors that, upon failure, could starve the plant of fuel resulting in an outage. The main bearings on the conveyors were not monitored, leaving the facility unaware of pending bearing failures. Several failures occurred that resulted in load reductions. However, the failures could have easily resulted in a total plant shutdown at a cost of more than $100,000 per day.

Management decided to begin a regime of condition monitoring on the many large, slow-turning bearings. Vibration monitoring was feasible but cumbersome and impractical because of the low speeds involved. Infrared temperature measurement was considered to detect a failure-in-progress, but this would not provide the desired advance warning.

Various vendors offered suggestions, including the use of shock pulse monitoring (SPM) for lubricant and bearing condition assessment. SPM is a well-established technique. Initially, SPM was launched to enable the technician to cost-effectively track bearing condition. The tool proved effective as a method to assess general lubrication requirements as well."

Shock Pulse Monitoring

"Shock pulse method is a signal processing technique used to measure metal impact and rolling noise such as that found in rolling element bearings and gears. Much more refined than other high-frequency measurements, shock pulse is widely used as a basis for predictive maintenance. Rolling element bearings are the most common measurement for shock pulse, but this technique has other applications including gear condition, compressor condition, and other applications where metal-to-metal contact is a source of wear."

IceTech: Is dry ice blasting safe to use in food production facilities

It’s important for food processing facilities to maintain strict guidelines for maintaining equipment. One of the challenges these facilities face is cleaning in a reasonable amount of time while still being thorough.

Utilizing dry ice blasting as a replacement for chemicals in food processing facilities allows plants to keep up with cleaning standards while making use of an eco-friendly cleaning solution. Cleaning with dry ice allows end users the ability to remove contaminants while utilizing an environmentally responsible cleaning media.

Dry ice cleaning also helps reduce water waste and any additional contamination associated with that. When facilities use water to clean equipment, they run the risk of increasing the bacteria count. Dry ice blasting utilizes food grade dry ice pellets that are EPA, FDA, and USDA approved.  Utilizing dry ice blasting can decontaminate surfaces with bacteria such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria.
