StressWave

State-of-the-art condition monitoring

Scientech StressWave Systems’ innovative Stress Wave Analysis (SWAN™) technology (formerly SWANtech) provides superior results over other technologies used in condition monitoring applications, such as vibration analysis, oil and lubrication analysis, infrared thermography.

SWAN Technology

  • Provides the Earliest Detection of Damage
  • Quantifiable Measurement of Damage and Trendable Parameters
  • Pinpoints Source of Damage by Measuring the Frequency of Shock and Friction Events that are Indicators of Component Damage
  • Eliminates False Alarms
  • Accommodates the Widest Range of Operating Environments Including Very Low Speed as Well as High-speed Machinery
  • Generic Configurations for Types of Machines
  • Simple to Learn and Easy to Use Significantly Reducing Operating Costs
  • Provides Continuous Online Monitoring

Products

    SWANguard TM

    Intelligent Condition Monitoring Modules

    SWANguard™ - is the intelligent condition monitoring module that is the basis for all measurements and data acquisition. The SWANguard+ continuously monitors the connected stress wave sensors and calculates the corresponding stress wave energy and peak amplitude values. Using Scientech's patented Stress Wave Analysis (SWAN™) technology, the SWANguard+ provides superior accuracy in detecting faults, providing a degree of resolution into machine dynamics previously unattainable using traditional diagnostic methods.

    SWANview TM

    Operator Display Software

    SWANview™ - is the base line decision support monitoring software that enables the user to view and trend all sensors and external process measurements (i.e. RPM) tied to the SWANguard+ units. The SWANguard+ data is easily transferred to SWANview. SWANview is a highly scalable, standards-based networked system offering remote monitoring and diagnostics across a local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN), or the Internet. It enables operators or equipment manufacturers to assess the condition of machinery and isolate faults in large, remotely located, or unmanned facilities. It provides for equipment monitoring and management - either plant- or enterprise-wide - from a central location. SWANview provides comprehensive analysis tools for easy diagnostic and assessment purposes. FFT, Histogram and Operating History are part of the tool set. Operational and environmental parameters can be trended and correlated with Stress Wave values for asset and operational optimization. The SWANview software can be deployed at both the local (site) level as well as the enterprise (fleet) level.

    SWANsensor TM

    Patented, Superior Monitoring Sensors

    SWANsensor™ - is a highly sensitive device, specifically designed to detect friction/shock induced stress waves occurring at ultrasonic frequencies within industrial machinery and process devices. SWANsensors utilize a proprietary piezoelectric sensing element and contain integrated signal condition electronics with the sensor body. The small size and available external mounting options that include stud, bolt-on, and epoxy, enable attachment to almost any type of machine surface in any type of operating environment.
