Vibration Monitoring Services

Vibration monitoring is the process of using sensors to monitor changes in various types of machines and equipment sets.

Increased levels of vibration can be an indication of a developing malfunction, process restriction, or even a failure. Proper vibration monitoring of rotating equipment is vital to a competent and successful maintenance program.

It can lead to a reduction in unplanned downtime, as well as repair and maintenance costs while optimizing machine performance.

Predicting repair with vibration monitoring and analysis

Almost all factories have rotating machinery and equipment, like motors, pumps, and gearboxes. All of these equipment sets tend to run smoothly at first, but then usage, as well as slight imperfections in installation or manufacturing, takes a toll.

Their shafts bend and go out of alignment, couplings start to fail and bearings begin to wear. As these failures develop, the vibration of the equipment starts to increase. At first, it’s a gradual progression, accelerating as the equipment reaches the point of failure.

The vibration of any object in motion tends to be characterized by variations in frequency, intensity, and amplitude. Such vibration signatures can be correlated to a physical phenomenon, which makes it possible to make use of the vibration data in order to gain insights into the overall efficiency and health of the equipment.

Vibration monitoring services typically are a part of the overall maintenance program. It aids manufacturers in avoiding breakdowns and quality issues. These services aid in identifying characteristic vibration signatures and subsequently predict when key components need replacing.

By partnering with a company like Nanoprecise Sci Corp that specializes in Gearbox Vibration Monitoring, you can get adequate time to source the new parts for your equipment, plan their installation, and maintain your production schedules properly, without having to deal with the hassles of quality problems or overdue orders.

Getting the most from vibration monitoring

Detecting common problems using vibration

Vibration may prematurely wear components, result in safety issues, shorten the life of the equipment, and create noise. Misalignment and imbalance in rotating assets may break driveshafts and other components.

Visually illustrating the severity of vibration

Vibration monitors make use of a color-coded hierarchy to inform maintenance teams of the vibration intensity. As the performance indicators of assets deviate from pre-set baselines, the predictive maintenance software sends an alarm indicating that the thresholds have been exceeded.

Tracking asset health with temperature and vibration

Capturing changes in surface temperature may not precisely identify the internal problem, but condition changes in regards to ambient temperature are known to be a good indicator of the impending fault and can be used to notify engineers/technicians for further evaluation. 

Providing specialized Vibration Monitoring services

  • Establishing a robust vibration monitoring system includes much more than just buying a vibration analyzer.
  • It requires an in-depth knowledge of vibration testing software and devices, along with an understanding of rotating equipment design.

Frequently Asked Questions

Vibration Analysis is used to detect early precursors to machine failure; thereby enabling the maintenance & reliability teams to repair or replace the machine before an expensive failure occurs.

Gearbox Vibration Monitoring, Rotor Vibration Monitoring, Bearing Condition Monitoring, and Motor Vibration Monitoring are the common forms of vibration monitoring.

Even though a range of sophisticated techniques can be used for this purpose, time waveform and the frequency spectrum are known to be the two most fundamental methods for presenting vibration data.

Data from vibration monitoring services can reveal whether the equipment has broken bolts or welds or if the air gap between the rotor and stator in the motor is non-concentric and whether the rotor bars in a motor are intact.

Important objectives of vibration monitoring include:

  • Finding a developing issue that can be repaired in order to increase the life of a machine
  • Detecting a chronic issue that cannot be repaired and will require replacement, so as to schedule the maintenance activity at an appropriate time and avoid an unplanned shutdown
  • Make sure that repairs/installation has been conducted appropriately
  • Predicting failures as part of a predictive maintenance program.
