Title (EN) CRITICAL VALVE PERFORMANCE MONITORING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE SURVEILLANCE DE PERFORMANCE CRITIQUE DE VANNE
Abstract:
(EN) A monitoring system may include a position sensor, strain gauges, and a computing device for monitoring valves in a pressure pump having multiple chambers to determine critical valve limits for the valves using strain measurements for each chamber. The strain gauges may determine strain in each chamber of the pressure pump. The position sensor may determine the position of a crankshaft mechanically coupled to a plunger in each chamber. The computing device may receive signals generated by the strain gauges and the position sensor related to the strain in each chamber and the position of the crankshaft, respectively, and may process the signals to determine delays in the actuation of the valves for determining critical valve limits.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de surveillance qui comprend un capteur de position, des jauges de contrainte et un dispositif informatique pour surveiller des vannes d'une pompe foulante comportant de multiples chambres, afin de déterminer des limites critiques de vanne pour les vannes à l'aide de mesures de contrainte associées à chaque chambre. Les jauges de contrainte déterminent la contrainte dans chaque chambre de la pompe foulante. Le capteur de position détermine la position d'un vilebrequin couplé mécaniquement à un piston dans chaque chambre. Le dispositif informatique reçoit les signaux générés par les jauges de contrainte et le capteur de position, relatifs à la contrainte dans chaque chambre et à la position du vilebrequin, respectivement, et traite ces signaux afin de déterminer des retards dans l'actionnement des vannes pour déterminer des limites critiques de vanne.
