High reliability of air screw compressors by simultaneous monitoring with VIBGUARD compact

Reliability of VIBGUARD compact

PRUFTECHNIK Condition Monitoring utilized with VIBGUARD compact to develop a new Condition Monitoring System for simultaneous and continuous data collection.


PRUFTECHNIK Inc., USA based in Philadelphia coordinated with AstraZeneca in Frederick, MD for an excellent field test to perform extensive function tests before the product launch.


AstraZeneca provided a two stage oil-free rotary screw air compressor which the reliability engineers monitor already with the PRUFTECHNIK FFT-Analyzer VIBXPERT II. This gave us the good opportunity to compare the vibration date and to check it for plausibility.


The screw air compressor is a very important part in the production chain of AstraZeneca´s pharmaceutical products. Therefore two of these compressors are available and work in alternating operation.
