Gear damage on rotary kiln

This case study describes the detection of gear damage on an output shaft, detected during a capacity test involving a speed increase.

The Södra Cell Värö pulp mill in southern Sweden uses the Intellinova online system with HD measurement technology to monitor the drives of its rotary kiln. In conjunction with a capacity test where the rotary speed was slightly increased, rising shock pulse trends were observed. What was initially believed to be a problem with the internal gears or bearings turned out to be a crack on a gear on the output shaft.

System.Web.HttpException (0x80004005): Error executing child request for handler 'System.Web.Mvc.HttpHandlerUtil+ServerExecuteHttpHandlerAsyncWrapper'. ---> System.Exception: An error occured when fetching files; Cannot deserialize the current JSON object (e.g. {"name":"value"}) into type 'System.Collections.Generic.List`1[SPM.WebClient.Models.DTO.ExtranetApi.FileGroupCategory]' because the type requires a JSON array (e.g. [1,2,3]) to deserialize correctly.
To fix this error either change the JSON to a JSON array (e.g. [1,2,3]) or change the deserialized type so that it is a normal .NET type (e.g. not a primitive type like integer, not a collection type like an array or List<T>) that can be deserialized from a JSON object. JsonObjectAttribute can also be added to the type to force it to deserialize from a JSON object.
