Pipe Vibration Meter 330 is new to reduce premature failures on offshore and onshore oil, gas, and petrochem plant pipework.
PVM 330 combines accelerometer, data cable, and analyzer to deliver easy assessment of vibration-induced pipework fatigue. Its accelerometer is placed onto one of a number of predetermined pipework positions to measure vibration amplitude and frequency. Readings are fed into the analyzer. It uses FFTs and industry standard acceptance criteria to identify whether there is an operational risk. Output is configured as a simple 'traffic light' message: 'OK' no action is needed; 'concern' or 'problem' to prompt remedial action.
