2011 Developed DataMiner2 building on the original DataMiner™, first introduced in 2007. More points over the operating map can be accurately measured in a much shorter time, lessening guesswork and helping equipment operators and owners make better and more informed decisions.
2010 Launched a new website, solutions.betamachinery.com. This website offers useful products to address vibration and pulsation issues on machines and piping systems. Structural dynamics testing program on offshore productions programs introduced.
2009 Pioneered the System Performance Model™ (SPM™) program in collaboration with ACI Services, Inc. For the first time ever, owners and packagers are provided with crucial information about compressor performance across the whole operating map. This service evaluates different alternatives resulting in improved reliability, safety, and profitability. Originally geared to optimizing pipeline compressor stations, this service is also ideal for midstream, injection-withdrawal, and other larger compressor applications.
2008 Partnered with M2M Data Corporation (M2M) to develop Intelligent Machinery Service, or iMA™. This is a breakthrough new multi-tiered machinery diagnostic and optimization service, representing the most cost effective real-time monitoring, analysis, predictive maintenance, and optimization solution available. Among the benefits are increased throughput, optimized performance, lower cost of maintenance, and emissions monitoring.
2007 Introduced DataMiner™, an innovative method to "mine" valuable results across many different operating conditions, speeds, or designs. This tool enables our experts to optimize the compressor design resulting in lower horsepower losses (operating costs) and improved reliability. End users realize more efficient units and lower costs.
2006 Re-developed the B Probe™ in partnership with Dynalco for sale to the market. Has enhanced performance and capability and still the only non-intrusive inspection tool of its kind to evaluate the condition of power cylinders, wrist pins and con rod bearings on spark-ignited and diesel engines.
2005 Release of MAPAK™ version 22 with enhanced modeling of meter error, dynamic pressure drop, time domain analysis and dual cylinder nozzle gas passages, compliance to API 618 5th Edition guidelines. Celebrated over 1900 acoustical analysis projects to minimize vibration problems on machine systems.
2004 Performed extensive speed trial at a premier Canadian paper mill, achieving new record speeds. Field capabilities enhanced with 80 channel data-capture instrumentation and unique data-mining software applications.
2002 Created the industry’s most comprehensive Finite Element Analysis (FEA) database for reciprocating gas compressor frames.
1998 Introduced advanced acoustical modeling capabilities using Time Domain analysis – a leap in accuracy compared to other software modeling techniques. (note: Time Domain modeling is not available with commercial software)
1997 Developed and patented a Field Installable Choke Tube to allow for on-site control of excessive pulsation in a reciprocating compressor.
1996 Developed and applied to patent a Method for Measuring Engine Static Stiffness.
