Rotating equipment vibration can correlate directly to the health of the equipment. There are many techniques to minimize vibration and it is generally understood that lowering vibration can extend the life of the equipment. Balancing, alignment, isolation, and damping are just a few basic techniques that can have a positive impact on the equipment life.
Defining the right vibration measurement techniques, applied at the right location and at the right time, are all key components of an effective vibration monitoring program. Monitoring amplitudes and trends can provide advance warning of an impending failure. Proper diagnostics can trigger correction of misalignment and imbalance before damage occurs to bearings, gears or other internal components of the system.
Our staff conduct full plant audits, trouble shooting surveys, and equipment set-to-work programs tailored to your needs. We are skilled at defining custom vibration monitoring programs for your facilities including test equipment, route plans, monitoring frequency, and provide full training for your staff to execute these programs. We offer remote monitoring services and engineering expertise to ensure the program provides the expected return on investment through decreased maintenance costs, extended life and improved safety.
