Early detection of bearing damage
Bearing damage cannot be actively prevented or predicted. The best option is to monitor bearing status and detect bearing damage at an early stage. GasTops MetalSCAN MS4000 is all about providing that reliable warning ahead of a potential event. One of the great benefits of this system is that you can choose to decrease power output and reduce the chance of engine damage. Another significant benefit is that it provides time to plan a scheduled engine stop.
GasTOPS MetalSCAN MS4000
GasTOPS MetalSCAN MS4000 bearing monitoring is the most advanced solution for early detection of bearing damage in aero-derivative gas turbines. MetalSCAN provides 24/7 online monitoring of the health status of all main bearings in your gas turbine.
MetalSCAN MS4000 has been developed to serve the energy market and stands out from other alert systems. MetalSCAN information allows operators to proactively plan the bearing replacement in order to minimize engine downtime and prevent secondary engine damage.
VBR Turbine Partners are the authorized GasTOPS partner
VBR Turbine Partners are the exclusive and authorized distributors for GasTOPS in Europe. MetalSCAN is provided as a dedicated service to monitor the gas turbine’s bearing condition. In conjunction with VBR’s Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics system DECIDE we are able to identify bearing condition against the back ground of all engine variables and signals. The combined input of information sources and our modelling software enable us to identify potential root causes faster. The condition of gas turbines is monitored and analysed continuously to reduce failure risks.
Simple solid state and reliable design
GasTops MetalSCAN has no moving parts. It has been designed for heavy industrial use and to withstand high temperatures year in and year out. MetalSCAN monitors lube oil debris at a particle level and is able to detect bearing damage in a very early stage. It uses a through-flow inductive sensor that is installed in-line within the turbine lubrication oil system. The sensor is capable of detecting and categorizing ferrous and non-ferrous particles by size and type. MetalSCAN has been designed to be maintenance free and it does not indicate ‘false positives’.
