Vibration Analysis provides assessment of the current health of equipment and is used for those assets with rotational parts with bearing frequencies, imbalance, and misalignment issues which will increase vibration, will create consequential damage.
WHAT IS VIBRATION ANALYSIS?
In terms of mechanical vibrations for machine diagnosis, the vibration analysis is a very important technique. It is based on the high information content provided by the machine vibration signals that are an indicator of the machine condition, used for the diagnosis of faults.
WHY USE VIBRATION ANALYSIS?
It is used for early detection of mechanical fatigue and breakdown. All rotating equipment vibrates to some degree, but as older bearings and components reach the end of their product life they begin to vibrate more dramatically, and in distinct ways. Ongoing monitoring of equipment allows these signs of wear and damage to be identified well before the damage becomes an expensive problem. Vibration analysis is one of the most effective ways to detect and prevent equipment failure or costly downtime. It can screen most faults including imbalance, misalignment, looseness and late-stage bearing wear, gear mesh issues providing precipitous warning of impending failure.
Vibration Analysis can be used on all types of asset including:
- Land Rig
- Will take a snapshot of current equipment health
- Will start baseline and provide continuous trending results in graphical form
- ATEX rated Handheld Equipment allowing to be used at height
- Can be used in all extreme weather environments
- Can be used as part of a Preventative Maintenance Program
