  • Blind separation of vibration components in machine monitoring

    The paper presents an approach for machine vibration analysis and health monitoring using blind source separation (BSS). By this approach, the investigated problem is transferred from the original space of the measurements to the space of independent sources, where the reduced number of components will simplify the analysis problem and where different methods can be applied for scalar signals. ...

  • Monitoring network optimisation for spatial data classification using support vector machines

    The paper presents a novel method for monitoring network optimisation, based on a recent machine learning technique known as support vector machine. It is problem-oriented in the sense that it directly answers the question of whether the advised spatial location is important for the classification model. The method can be used to increase the accuracy of classification models by taking a small ...

  • Forensic engineering for machine foundations

    Machine foundations are dynamically loaded structures whose response depends on a number of parameters such as strength, stiffness, mass, damping, soil–structure interaction and fatigue. Performance–based designs and evaluation procedures are gaining popularity particularly with respect to structures that have been built using codal provisions existing a few decades back. Enhancement of knowledge ...

  • Asbestos monitoring – what monitor should I be using?

    Asbestos is the name given to a group of minerals that occur naturally as masses of strong, flexible fibres that can be separated into thin threads and woven. These fibres are not affected by heat and do not conduct electricity. Asbestos is chemically, relatively stable. For these reasons, asbestos has been widely used in many industries.  These four types are classified as follows:  ...

  • The future is condition monitoring

    It’s been a big month here at Hansford Sensors. We kicked off November by celebrating our 10thanniversary, during which time we were playfully predicting what our company may look like in another decade. While our thoughts on this are strictly hypothetical at this stage, thanks to the release of a new report we now have a better idea of the state of the condition monitoring ...

  • Cloud computing for noise monitoring

    ABSTRACT Cloud computing is the use of computing resources that are delivered as a service over the Internet. This means that software, hardware and network resources are centrally managed. The ubiquitous availability of high-capacity networks and reduced cost of both client and server hardware have led to a tremendous growth in cloud computing. The concept gives a huge benefit for ...

  • Monitoring in the near future

    Take a look into the lab to see how commercialization of advanced environmental sensory capability is about to happen. Being asked to describe technology breakthroughs in environmental sensors with applications like air and water monitoring prompts the obvious question, 'If the first micro-machined gas chromatograph was demonstrated in 1979, why didn't the environmental sensor market experience ...

  • The vibration monitoring evolution

    A recent report from Markets & Markets estimated that demand for vibration monitoring systems will reach nearly $1.5 billion by 2020. That’s a staggering increase of around 50% compared with today – with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 6.5%. Is this growth a big surprise though? As a company that has seen first hand the rapid evolution of the ...

  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Leak in Soda Machines

    Carbon dioxide, also known as CO2, is a very well known gas type but not everyone knows how deadly it is. Most people know it as a gas that humans exhale but commercially, it is manufactured and shipped as a liquefied compressed gas or is used as dry ice in its solid form. A common use of CO2 gas is in soda fountain machines to carbonate soft drinks by pressurizing the CO2 ...

  • Detection of inter-coil short circuits in Synchronous Machine armature winding on the basis of analysis of machine magnetic field

    Abstract This paper deals with detection of inter-coil short circuits in the synchronous machine armature winding, for the machines having the armature winding with coils, based on the analysis of the magnetic field present in the machine. Applying FEM (finite element method) to the generator model, magnetic field wave forms in the machine have been calculated for every point ...

  • Monitor Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) with PPM Technology’s IAQ Monitor

    Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. VOC’s is one of numerous sensor options that can be incorporated into PPM Technology’s ...
