Complete Turbomachinery Solution Adds Value to Retrofit and Upgrade Projects
Emerson Process Management introduces the CSI 6500 Machinery Health Monitor, the latest advancement of its Smart Machinery Health Management capabilities. The CSI 6500 allows users to combine protection modules from the CSI 6000 Machinery Health Monitor with plug-in prediction modules to create a single rack for a complete online monitoring solution.
Like the CSI 6000 protection solution, the CSI 6500 fully complies with the requirements for API 670 protection. API 670 is the American Petroleum Institute’s globally-accepted definition of industry best practices for turbomachinery protection.
The CSI 6500 is designed for plants looking to replace their existing protection system while also leveraging the benefits of predictive diagnostics. It builds on Emerson’s foundation of providing protection and prediction solutions for turbomachinery. Housed in a single chassis, the solution advances Emerson’s ability to deliver a comprehensive online machinery monitoring package that includes prediction, protection and performance monitoring integrated with process automation.
The CSI 6500 leverages the predictive diagnostic capabilities of AMS Suite, a family of diagnostic software applications that enable users to detect plant asset problems before they become critical issues. For real time decision-making with the CSI 6500, AMS Suite provides a simple graphical view of process parameters, machinery protection parameters, machinery health information and machine performance information.
