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

Reliability of VIBGUARD compact

PRUFTECHNIK developed a new Condition Monitoring system for simultaneous and continuous data collection, VIBGUARD compact.


PRUFTECHNIK Inc. USA, a Philadelphia-based company, coordinated with the nearby AstraZeneca in Frederick, MD to perform extensive functionality tests before the product launch.


AstraZeneca provided a two-stage oil-free rotary screw air-compressor that is currently monitored with the PRUFTECHNIK FFT-Analyzer VIBXPERT II. This gave us the opportunity to compare vibration data and allowed us to verify plausibility.


As an integral asset to AstraZeneca‘s production chain, two compressors are available and work in an alternating operation.
