System 1 offers plant-wide condition monitoring from anywhere you choose to allow you to monitor your machinery and keep maintenance challenges to a minimum. System 1 helps meet challenges you face with maintaining your equipment like having a smaller staff, fewer experts on the ground, competing priorities, and keeping up with increasing productivity demands.
$1 million in lost production and unplanned outages were avoided when the System 1 Decision Support* Dry Gas Seal RulePak identified and reported multiple significant events at an offshore platform in the North Sea. System 1 benefits include increased availability and reliability, with decreased maintenance costs and lost production revenues.
BHGE’s Bently Nevada* has a Supporting Service Agreement (SSA) with a customer in the Middle East. The agreement includes regular software and hardware maintenance aimed at improving data availability and quality, as well as ongoing Machinery Diagnostic Services dedicated to proactive monitoring of hundreds of critical machine trains. The customer’s machinery assets are monitored by one of the largest installed bases of System 1 and associated Bently Nevada software and hardware in the world.
System 1 Wins Gold! System 1 is the recipient of Oil & Gas Engineering’s prestigious Product of the Year award for 2019. Oil & Gas Engineering’s Product of the Year (POY) program is the premier award for new products in the oil and gas industry.
Comprehensive Data Collection
Machine condition monitoring and predictive maintenance prove challenging when critical data is scattered across varying and incompatible systems. System 1’s flexible architecture allows for broad access to machine, process and controls data. Data from Bently Nevada machine monitors combine with data from other sources in the plant to provide a holistic view of the health of your assets.
Intelligent Data Management
Intelligent data management is the combination of two key capabilities within System 1. The first is state-based data collection, which allows data to be collected at different rates based on different machine operating modes. The second is data thinning algorithms, which periodically summarize historical data into smaller data sets with fewer data points, effectively reducing the overall storage memory requirements and ensuring storage capacity for years to come.
Flexible and Secure Data Transfer
System 1 supports the industry-standard OPC UA protocol for export of waveforms, trends and alarm data to other data systems, data lakes and analytics platforms. Built-in data replication and data diode support allow System 1 data to be transferred securely over public and internal networks, making your data available where needed; while simplifying compliance to NERC CIP and other international cybersecurity standards.
System 1 supports a proactive machinery monitoring strategy by detecting changes in conditions before failure occurs. System 1's state-based alarm configuration allows collected data to be compared against varying alarm levels, depending on the load and operating states of the machine.
Knowledge-Based Machine Learning
System 1’s Decision Support option helps put your staff’s years of machine learning to use with customizable rules that offer advanced insights into the behavior of your machines and process conditions.
Advanced Machine Thermodynamic Monitoring
System 1’s advanced machine condition analytics can be enhanced with Bently Performance giving users access to extensive thermodynamic and mechanical information on machine assets.
System 1’s HMI capability allows you to create a virtual depiction of your plant assets with color-coded indicators of machine health.
Comprehensive Diagnostics Tools
Vibration analysis is a complicated science. Bently Nevada has been a leader in the design of tools that allow our users to perform the necessary functions of the job: trend analysis and baselining, alarm prioritization and suppression, detailed fault and root-cause analysis, repair confirmation and setpoint management. With System 1’s asset specific plot types, users can quickly identify machine irregularities for proactive machine maintenance and optimization. The machinery data you need with context and clarity.
Case management provides the tools necessary to add notes to instances of machine damage, generate reports to communicate repair needs to the field or plant teams, and create machine audit files as archives for future reference.
While System 1 has been designed from the ground up to work in concert with a wide variety of condition monitoring and asset protection ecosystems, here are some of our key products that integrate seamlessly with System 1:
System 1 was specifically designed to provide class-leading asset protection and condition monitoring for the following industries:
