Vibration Monitoring In Refinery Applications Under API Standard 670
 
The US energy market has experienced significant growth since 2010, transforming from a major fossil fuel importer into a major fossil fuel producer. Fossil fuel (coal, natural gas and petroleum) production has increased by 17% in the last 8 years, driven by developments in shale and offshore extraction.

The American Petroleum Institute (API) Standard 670: Machinery Protection Systems stipulates the minimum requirements of machinery protection systems in refinery applications in an effort to improve safety, increase uptime and quality and reduce risk. Read this white paper to learn about the standard’s requirements for accelerometer selection and field testing.
