Welcome back for our first quarterly update for Q1 2021 of the Orbit Digital Magazine. During 2020, over 50 employees at the Minden location achieved major milestones in their Bently Nevada careers, reaching 10, 20, 30, and even 45 years of service. 45 years! Very few can claim such an incredible milestone and it should most certainly be celebrated. 

Orbit 60 is Bently Nevada’s latest state of the art condition monitoring, protection and data integration platform. In this update, we will discuss in greater detail, how we aXessTM System 1 with the Condition Monitoring Monitor Module, CMM, specifically emphasizing its inherent Cyber Security capabilities; how Orbit 60 also allows you to have multiple CMMs in one system, and how all of these expanded capabilities save you time and money in your deployments.

Digital Transformation is such a pervasive topic that there is a tendency for our eyes to glaze over as yet another company issues a statement about its essential role in the digital journey of its customers. For some, the words are merely platitudes. For others, the words are backed up with actions, but largely aspirational actions. 

Turbomachinery is often the most-critical rotating equipment within an industrial process. As such, this machine class has been instrumented and monitored as part of Condition Monitoring Programs for decades. System 1 Evo, the next generation System 1 offering, has maintained the deep diagnostic capability-set that made System 1 Classic so essential to monitoring turbomachinery, while being greatly enhanced to meet the evolving digital transformation needs of our customers.

With System 1’s advanced toolset, it is often deployed on critical and highly critical machines. However, less critical reciprocating compressors assets still needing monitoring often do not get proper visibility due to their remote locations and budgetary concerns. Bently Nevada has introduced a new technology specifically for this application. We will explore the new reciprocating compression monitoring application for real-time and proactive machine monitoring.

Finally, Health, Safety, and Environment has always been critical to the way the Bently Nevada business operates.  With the pandemic, there has been additional focus on the importance of HSE, not just at our manufacturing locations, but also at our service/customer facing operations.

2020 Recognition: Through the Years

During 2020, while not getting to celebrate the traditional way, over 50 employees achieved major milestones in their Bently Nevada careers, reaching 10, 20, 30, and even 45 years of service. 45 years! Very few can claim such an incredible milestone and should most certainly be celebrated. While we may not get to do so in person at this time, those being honored should feel as though they are valued and important to such longevity of a business; they are the ones that have helped achieve 60 years of success, written by Pamela Litka.

Orbit 60 Series Update: Cyber Secure Condition Monitoring!

Welcome back for our first quarterly update of Orbit 60 for 2021.  Orbit 60 is Bently Nevada’s latest state of the art condition monitoring, protection and data integration platform.  In last quarter’s update, we discussed the enhancements made in our Output cards, and how we aXessTM System 1, conneXTM to your DCS/Historian and output to your remote display(s). In this update, we will discuss in greater detail, how we aXessTM System 1 with the Condition Monitoring Monitor Module, CMM, specifically emphasizing its inherant Cyber Security capabilities; how Orbit 60 also allows you to have multiple CMMs in one system, and how all of these expanded capabilities save you time and money in your deployments,  written by John Kingham and Darren Evans.

Your Digital Journey to Plantwide Condition Monitoring

Digital Transformation is such a pervasive topic that there is a tendency for our eyes to glaze over as yet another company issues a statement about its essential role in the digital journey of its customers. For some, the words are merely platitudes. For others, the words are backed up with actions, but largely aspirational actions. For still others, those actions are delivering tangible benefits, backed up by customer testimonials and case histories, written by Kim Murphy.

System 1 Use Case: Turbomachinery Monitoring

Turbomachinery is often the most-critical rotating equipment within an industrial process. As such, this machine class has been instrumented and monitored as part of Condition Monitoring Programs for decades. System 1 Evo, the next generation System 1 offering, has maintained the deep diagnostic capability-set that made System 1 Classic so essential to monitoring turbomachinery, while being greatly enhanced to meet the evolving digital transformation needs of our customers, written by Jackie Tappan.

New Technology: Reciprocating Compressor Monitoring Solution

With System 1’s advanced toolset, it is often deployed on critical and highly critical machines. However, less critical reciprocating compressors assets still needing monitoring often don’t get proper visibility due to their remote locations and budgetary concerns. An example of these assets is reciprocating compressors for midstream and upstream applications. 
Bently Nevada has introduced a new technology specifically for this application and this Orbit article explores the new reciprocating compression monitoring application for real-time and proactive machine monitoring, written by Hayley Stephenson.
