MK6 GEISLINGER MONITORING SYSTEM

The latest GMS Mk6 is the gateway to the digital world. It can monitor torsional vibrations throughout the drive train and predict failures by detecting abnormal behavior early. Connectivity and data acquisition in the new Geislinger Monitoring System Mk6 enables Big Data analysis and machine learning. 30 years of experience in vibration monitoring and more than 60 years of experience in torsional vibration analysis give us a deep understanding of the system.

MK6 GEISLINGER MONITORING SYSTEM

The latest Geislinger Monitoring System is a continuous monitoring and measuring system for rotating components of the entire powertrain. It is designed for various applications, such as marine propulsion, power generation, wind power, railroads, compressors, industrial applications, or test benches.

The Geislinger Monitoring System Mk6 is often used with Geislinger torsional vibration dampers and torsionally flexible couplings. Its main task is to monitor the components and detect functional deviations. An alarm is triggered when safety limits are reached or exceeded. This allows the user to take appropriate measures to prevent component or system failure.

In addition, reports can be issued and used as an official service document. Classification societies recognize it and can also prevent overhaul.

BENEFITS

POWER MONITORING

  • Measures and monitors static torque and transmitted power
  • Measures static torsion between two rotating racks mounted on the shaft line and is integrated into the coupling
  • Online calibration

TORSIONAL VIBRATION MONITORING

  • The Geislinger Monitoring System Mk6 is often used in conjunction with Geislinger torsional vibration dampers and torsional elastic couplings
  • The main task is to monitor the components and detect functional deviations

VIBRATION STRESS LEVELS IN SHAFT COMPONENTS

In many propulsion systems, critical intermediate shaft loads can be caused by torsional vibrations, which can lead to failures of the main shaft components.

  • The Geislinger Monitoring System Mk6 is designed to detect such overloads in the shaftline
  • Exceeding of IACS UR M68 stress limits triggers an alarm or warning on site (for the crew)
  • Critical operating conditions leading to high wear on components can be detected by continuous torsional vibration monitoring

INSTALLATION

Our experienced service personnel have successfully completed thousands of installations of the previous Mk4 and Mk5 monitoring systems. Depending on the vessel’s location, our service department will coordinate the best and fastest installation by a Geislinger expert.
