Valmet renews condition monitoring solution04 May 2022

Valmet has introduced a renewed Valmet DNA Online Condition Monitoring solution, which provides automated anomaly detection technology and connection to both wired and wireless vibration sensors. The solution enables the use of optimal measurements and analysis for each machine, based on their criticality and field conditions.

Condition monitoring is part of the Valmet DNA Automation System, providing machine condition information in the same user interface as the process automation. The single system is said to significantly improve collaboration between operations and maintenance teams.

The new Valmet DNA User Interface is available in a local network or remotely through a secure internet connection. Users can manage the process and maintenance information from the same system, based on their user rights.

The renewed system features an automated anomaly detection, which reports the changes in key vibration parameters and provides an early indication of possible machinery fault. Anomaly detection is based on measurement history and therefore preset alarm limits are not needed. The automated diagnostic application identifies fault types and severity based on the measured vibration data. This allows users to focus on planning the correct maintenance actions to improve efficiency and uptime.

Valmet provides a wide range of vibration sensors for various machinery. In addition to traditional wired vibration sensors, Valmet now introduces wireless vibration sensors and measurement modules. These can be divided into three categories: wireless piezoelectric accelerometers, wireless micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) accelerometers, and wireless measurement modules for external sensors.
