Windrock has introduced its 6400 Portable Analyzer, a purpose-built analyzer platform for compression and combustion machinery reliability programs.
“Many of the new features included in the 6400, which were requested by our customers, could not be supported by the old analyzer architecture,” said Ed Flanagan, General Manager at Windrock. “Since the release of the RECIP-TRAP 9260 in 2002 and the 6320/PA in 2008, technology advancements allow for a lighter, faster, and more ergonomic analyzer. In designing the 6400, we saw the opportunity to make improvements and implement new capabilities. In doing so, we’ve raised the bar on portable analyzers.”
Headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA, Windrock specializes in condition-based and performance-based monitoring solutions for compressors and engines across multiple applications. Following Windrock’s long tradition of comprehensive equipment analysis, the 6400 provides information used to assess the mechanical condition and performance of reciprocating compressors and engines, as well as rotating equipment. It also provides early warnings of potentially catastrophic running conditions and gives actionable economic data to support maintenance and operational decision-making.
“The 6400 analyzer offers better utility and easier operation compared to our other analyzers,” said Flanagan. “One of the key features of the 6400 is that we’ve consolidated infrared and ultrasonic measurement into one sensor, making the analyzer tool much more convenient and compact. Not only do you have less equipment to carry in your kit, but you can now take both of those measurements at the same time.”
