Do you deal with Turbines, Compressors, Pumps, Gear Boxes or other Turbomachines? Do you have issues with their rotor and bearing vibrations? Do you work in a power plant, a chemical site or a turbomachinery service center?
ORBIGate is the OROS portable and dedicated solution for the measurement of industrial rotating machinery vibration. Featuring simultaneous acquisition on up to 32 dynamic channels, an entire machine train may be tested. ORBIGate is used on any combination of machines ranging from turbines, motors and generators, as well as pumps and compressors. Machine trains can be directly coupled or coupled through a gear box. The system acquires and analyzes shaft and casing vibration. Typical graphics are orbits, shaft centerline, spectra, bode and polar diagrams, trends, waterfall, overall peak to peak, 1X (amplitude and phase).

Factory Acceptance Test
During the acceptance process, ORBIGate records the critical parameters, shows the typical displays of the rotor relative vibrations and positions. An automatic report, through a customized template can be edited and printed. Data can be stored during the acceptance process for later post-analysis if required.
Site Acceptance Test
ORBIGate is used for the rotating tests and benefits of the OROS solutions range such as OROS Modal 2 for the other tests. The portability and ruggedness of OROS analyzers is key when realizing these on-site tests. A user-friendly software interface as well as customized report templates are also important in these measurement environments.
Troubleshooting & Diagnostic
The issue at the end is always to reduce the vibration level but the origin can be of multiple sorts: high excitation due to unbalance, misalignment or instabilities but also high structural coupling with the machine and its foundation. In this case, a number of tools such as ORBIGate, Modal 2, Balancing, or NVGate the general platform for noise and vibration analysis may be required to face the issue.
TurbomachineryORBIGate analyzes the machines running on fluid film bearings and offers the typical displays adapted to the relative motion of the shafts in their bearings within a dedicated and user friendly environment.
EnergyWhenever power generators are driven by gas turbines, hydro turbines, or steam turbines, ORBIGate is used to proceed to their vibration analysis. Talking of acceptance tests on the manufacturers test benches or troubleshooting vibrations in the field: in both cases the ORBIGate software solution and OROS analyzers are the trustworthy companions to carry out the tests.
Oil and GasDowntime is critical and no compromise can be done on the quality of the test equipment of compressors. Vibrations, representative of the machine health, are subject to be captured under a number of circumstances: from the initial acceptance test at the manufacturer place to the fault diagnostic to be carried out on an offshore platform. ORBIGate ease of use, combined with the portability and reliability of OROS analyzers, makes it the solution for your vibration tests on oil and gas turbomachines.
Chemical and PetrochemicalWhen vibration issues arise, the time allocated to vibration tests is reduced to the minimum. You need tools to capture vibration data efficiently and accurately, reducing the number of machine runups and rundowns to what is proposed. ORBIGate, will let you carry out your tests on all sensors simultaneously with an intuitive, dedicated software interface.
