As part of preventive maintenance, the operation of rotary machines can be monitored and documented, during which, in addition to basic data, the current situation of the machine is also recorded. The recordings are then compared to reference values for the purpose of preventing mechanical failures. The obtained data is the most important factor in the prevention of technical performance reduction of the machine and achieving and maintaining target values of the plant.
An estimate of the remaining service life of the machine can also be given on the basis of recorded data on the current situation of the machine. It is important to emphasize that the used monitoring and preventive diagnostic systems do not affect the regular operation of the plant.
