Hansford Sensors - International Centre of Excellence for Vibration Monitoring

Minimise downtime and optimise profit

Identifying and preventing vibration in rotating machinery will minimise unscheduled downtime and maximise profit.  Hansford Sensors designs and manufactures vibration monitoring equipment that enables these benefits to be enjoyed across the engineering landscape in industries such as Metals, Pharmaceuticals, Wind Power, Marine, Paper, Coal and Quarries and Food and Beverage.  With Hansford Sensors industrial accelerometers in place to support a preventative maintenance programme, machinery such as fans, pumps, motors and gearboxes can be protected and optimised. 

Vibration monitoring for specific industrial sectors

In the Metals industry, Hansford Sensors vibration monitoring equipment is used to protect key plant assets, such as rolling mills and cooling towers.  In Pharmaceuticals, the complete fan and motor assembly contained within an air handling unit - comprising bearings, shaft, pulley and belts - is protected by vibration sensors.  In Wind Power, where maintaining generating capacity is critical, vibration monitoring solutions help prevent damage and keep turbines turning in all weathers.  In the Marine industry, where downtime is extremely costly, the monitoring of equipment such as cargo pumps, turbochargers, Azipods and ventilation fans avoids machine failure and delays.  In a Paper mill, accelerometers from Hansford Sensors withstand the harsh, contaminated conditions to deliver exceptionally reliable service.  Within the Coal & Quarry industries, where machinery can be running around the clock, rotating machinery such as pumps, crushers and conveyors are monitored by Hansford Sensors.  And in the Food and Drink processing industry, Hansford Sensors provides equipment to monitor mixers, centrifuges, ovens, fans and conveyors that can be used in hygiene-critical environments.
