When your entire operation runs on machinery that simply cannot be down any more than necessary – you need machinery protection. Knowing your machinery’s operational tolerances with real-time monitoring, forensic-grade data, and expert analytics is the only way to turn costly unplanned outages into manageable, planned downtime.
Over 6 million sensors deployed. More than 100,000 monitoring systems installed globally. 225,000 cases solved – and counting. 53 Technical Training Centers worldwide. More than 240 international patents, including over 150 in the US. Over 50 years of experience in creating the technology that protects your machinery, as well as deploying it, monitoring it, and training team members around the globe to use it. Over 150 MDS technicians with a combined 1250 years of Bently Nevada customer service translates to over 18,000 successful diagnostic challenge resolutions and 320 SSAs.
Industries that depend on essential equipment choose our online machinery protection systems
A Heritage of Excellence
Proximity transducers and monitors from Bently Nevada, a Baker Hughes business, have protected highly critical machinery at petrochemical and power generation facilities for over 5 decades.
Our long-standing tradition of excellence in asset protection and years of expertise combine to expand the capabilities of our rack-based 3500 solution, the ADAPT* distributed platform, and the 1900 and 2300 monitoring and protection systems. All of these solutions integrate directly to provide continuous, real-time condition monitoring via our System 1 software.
Wide Ranging Benefits
Whether generating power, compression and pumping fluids, or driving process equipment, Bently Nevada machinery protection systems monitor critical machinery every hour of every day.
In this demanding environment, machinery failure is not simply inconvenient - it can be financially catastrophic. While repair costs alone can be staggering, the partial or total loss of production resulting from a failure can mean millions of dollars per day, and change the overall profit and loss for a customer's entire year.
Reliability and condition monitoring is more than just a good idea -- it is a necessity. Continuously monitoring critical asset parameters such as vibration, temperature, speed, and other relevant indicators is proven to anticipate and prevent mechanical failures. This method has been proven in tens of thousands of industrial facilities worldwide, and Bently Nevada delivers these tangible benefits:
- Intelligent, actionable insights for predictive maintenance via System 1 software
- Less process interruptions
- Improved protection from catastrophic failures
- Cost savings in maintenance and repairs
- Cost savings through reduced insurance premiums
- Longer intervals between outages
Partnering for Customer Success
Recent case studies demonstrate the integrity and reliability of System 1 and the 3500 Series. One power generation facility saved $1 million, another petroleum refinery saving $5 million, a coal-fired plant with rotor degradation avoided 250 days of downtime, and an aeroderivative gas turbine was saved from improper water washing and subsequent rotor imbalance – all via Bently Nevada machinery protection.

Working on multiple platforms can be a headache...learn more about the simplicity and power of the System 1 software.
Our online machinery protection systems have been protecting highly critical machinery at petrochemical and power generation facilities for over half a century.
Our online machinery protection systems work seamlessly with our System 1 software, as well as a Bently Nevada SSA.
The value of a Bently Nevada MPS has been demonstrated thousands of time in thousands of industrial facilities worldwide – when mission-critical machinery needs to me protected from a catastrophic failure, Bently Nevada is the proven leader.
One of the many benefits of our MPS is that you can plan your maintenance outages – versus an unplanned one. This results in less downtime, longer intervals between outages, and an overall reduction in production loss.
