• VIBRATION MONITORING FOR FAULT DETECTION AND PROCESS CONTROL OF THE MOTOR-MIXER AGREGATE IN FENI INDUSTRY-MACEDONIA

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 8 (2014), Issue 9, pg(s) 47-51

    One of the larger aggregates for production nickel in Feni – INDUSTRIES- Macedonia, is assembly machine mixer 1 and mixer 2. The proper functioning of aggregate depends on the prevention and early detection of damaged parts. Given that the aggregate works non-stop for 24 hours, its failure means termination of operation of furnaces for nickel, and thus the entire production. It means a loss of time, deviation from the production plan, loss of markets and loss of a lot of money. It is a very important to constantly monitor the vital parts rightness. Therefore regularly perform frequency analysis of engine bearings and mixer bearings. Aggregate is composed of: motor, hydro coupling, reducer, mechanics coupling, and mixer.

    This paper provides the results of frequency analysis of measured vibration of these parts, compared with limited values and recommendations for quick actions in removing the damaged parts in time periods with the least losses. That means pre timely delivery of bearings, preparation of aggregates for quick repairs with a short downtime. You will also be given a techno – economic analysis to save funds by using this method.
