“MOST OF THE TRADITIONAL MONITORING SYSTEMS INSTALLED ON OUR RECIPS DID NOT WORK RELIABLY. EITHER THEY DETECTED PROBLEMS TOO LATE OR CREATED NUISANCE ALARMS TOO FREQUENTLY. NOW, WITH RECIPCOM WE HAVE AN EXPERIENCED TECHNOLOGY THAT IS SPECIFICALLY DEVELOPED FOR RECIPS. USERS WILL EXPERIENCE IN THEIR DAILY WORK THAT RECIPCOM WAS DEVELOPED BY PEOPLE THAT HAVE RECIPROCATING MACHINERY AS THEIR CORE-BUSINESS.”

• Remote data acquisition in the Ex-zone
• Alarm resolution of crank angle of 1 degree
• Intelligent alarm counter

Malfunctions or failures of reciprocating compressors can quickly result in plant downtime and production losses. HOERBIGER offers smart monitoring systems, which continuously monitor the condition and key components of reciprocating compressors. Our RecipCOM monitoring system opens up new possibilities for you to optimize machinery protection and reciprocating compressor monitoring. The modular RecipCOM monitoring system is IEC 61508 / 61511 certified and complies with API 670. It acquires high-frequency, crank angle-related measurement values such as indicator pressure, vibrations and piston rod motion during every revolution. It compares them with defined alarm values in real time. Critical situations are detected in a timely manner with an alarm limit resolution of a crank angle of 1 degree. Up to 16 limit sets can be defined for various operating conditions. An intelligent alarm counter avoids faulty alarms. Over 300 compressors worldwide have been fitted with HOERBIGER on-line monitoring or machinery protection systems.
