The use of Vibration has made great strides in optimising the health of industrial machinery.
Vibration Analysis (VA) detects and measures vibration levels within your machinery that can be potentially harmful towards your machine components. These problems, often caused by and many more, can be detected long before the damage is physically visible.
and many more, can be detected long before the damage is physically visible.
The initial preparation of condition monitoring program is to survey the plant to identify machines, points, crew and parameters. The schematic plant layout is drawn and machine history record is organized.
Condition monitoring can be merged with the planned maintenance schedule without interfering with it. Time based maintenance is not to be immediately discarded but the combination of both maintenance programs certainly upgrades the maintenance quality and reliability.
Vibration analysis can be performed on all equipment that is subject to vibration problems in all the industrial application.
Piping that transport fluid equipment that cycles between different temperature and pressures, and rotating equipment are among the most susceptible components to experience vibration.
This analysis should be performed shortly after start-ups and repairs to ensure equipment is operating within integrity operating windows.
