Istec Releases Rod Drop Monitoring System

By DJ Slater13 October 2020

Istec has introduced the RecipSys 200, a compact monitoring system for reciprocating compressors. The rod drop monitoring system delivers real-time data of rider band wear, eliminating the need for periodic production shutdowns for manual inspections.

The RecipSys 200 uses a phase-triggered signal. The system filters the displacement signal to the right phase angle to provide a reliable measurement for compressors with fixed or variable rpm. The triggered signal ensures accuracy compared with overall measurements.

Extensive scalability options allow multiple modules to be connected for reciprocating compressors with multiple cylinders, making it suitable for any compressor configuration, Istec said. Its modularity allows the system to be integrated with other systems that monitor critical mechanical parameters, such as temperature, vibration or impact.
