With GE's System 1 condition monitoring software and the help of the Bently Nevada Supporting Service Agreement (SSA) team, a Middle East petrochemical plant was able to quickly rectify a process upset involving a particular compressor, resulting in an alarm trip indicating high vibration. By remotely analyzing valuable data from System 1 to determine the root cause, the team was able to have the machine back up and running within 24 hours, and avoided significant unnecessary maintenance costs.
