SETPOINT® For Reciprocating Compressors

Reciprocating Compressors are complex machines that require precise and careful monitoring to be sure they are running at optimal performance. These intricate machines can become costly and dangerous if an issue occurs, and it makes having a reliable monitoring system even more important.

The SETPOINT® Solution is designed with advanced capabilities to ensure that your reciprocating compressors are running safely and meeting the level of productivity you need. SETPOINT® monitors everything from case vibration, bearing looseness, piston vibration, crank vibration, and crank angle to pressure fluctuations, outlet temperatures, potential leaks, and much more. SETPOINT® is the solution you need to confidently know that you are getting the most from your reciprocating equipment.

Complete Vibration Monitoring With Every Motion


You need your reciprocating compressors to run efficiently and safely. The SETPOINT® Solution monitors key points for changes in machinery vibration and gives you the ability to know exactly what is happening with all parts of your compressor. You can easily determine the health of the specific components inside your machine without having to stop production. SETPOINT® gives you the insights you need to prevent gas leaks and efficiency issues caused by wear on the piston rings, bearings, bushings, bushing pin, and other factors that could impact the crank angle. You can even see the vibration changes caused by your inlet valves not opening or closing properly. With SETPOINT®, you will know more about your machines than ever before and make confident decisions faster.
