A Predictivity solution that increases machinery reliability
Using advanced sensors, big data analytics and diagnostic services, GE’s Reliability Max solution allows GE to assure increased equipment reliability levels beyond current industry standards. The solution uses a combination of advanced sensors, predictive analytics in real-time, historical data and OEM engineering expertise.
The key components of Reliability Max are:
- Advanced Sensing
- Data Analytics
- Remote Monitoring Advisory
These components are embedded in a full-service CSA offering based on OEM engineering support as well as the implementation of recommended actions by GE site-resident engineers.
Sensors are installed on critical sections of the Gas Turbine to relay additional data for predictive analysis:
Blade Health Monitoring – monitor the health of axial compressor blades and crack formation Combustion Dynamic Monitoring – monitor pressure pulsations on combustion chambers Oil Debris Monitoring – early warning of bearing failure caused by lube oil particle contaminants Roller Bearing Vibration Monitoring- monitor fault frequencies on bearings Gas Path Debris Monitoring - detect charged particles at the discharge of the exhaust diffuser
A variety of interrelated diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive rules developed by GE engineering teams specifically for GE gas turbines, to provide foresight on potential issues well before they reach an alarm phase as well as quicker, actionable insights to identify the possible root cause.
