Induced Draft (ID) Fan Monitoring
Thermal power plants experience large generation losses due ID fan downtime from high levels of vibration. Bearing lubrication system failures are often the main cause of ID Fan downtime.
Monitor the gear pumps used for the ID fan bearing lubrication system. Tribology sample information is combined with pump operating data to predict abrasion wear and recommend prescriptive maintenance actions with an improvement feedback loop.
Reduce ID fan downtime due to improved bearing lubrication monitoring.
