Vibration Spectrum Analysis or Vibration Analysis is an important part of keeping your rotating equipment working at peak performance. By implementing a vibration analysis program, you will be able to identify a significant amount of rotating equipment problems including bearing failures before they become disasters. Implementing a customized program developed by The Vibration Guys™ can solve your equipment issues.
The Vibration Guys™ use state of the art analysis tools, specifically, Benstone multi-channel cadre of vibration instruments, and the latest and fastest analyzer on the market currently – the Emerson CSI 2140. We are experts in analysis and in vibration analysis software including the PRUFTECHNIK’s OMNITREND software and CSI’s AMS for analysis and developing customized reports to provide all the health and welfare information for your machines.
Advanced Analysis Techniques
The Vibration Guys™ specialists can employ advanced analysis techniques such as a Bump Test, Modal Analysis, and Operating Defection Shapes (ODS) studies which are all progressively more complex and accurate methods to understand and remedy vibration and resonance.
Modal Analysis and ODS can provide non-linear or out-of-phase translational/rotational motions in the entire structure. Analyzing the relationships of these points provides the underlying cause for excessively high vibration levels. These advanced analysis methods can identify and locate problems that may not be identified in other types of analysis.
Bump Testing is able to determine the natural frequencies present in a structure and using modal analysis provides important information and visualization about the manner in which structures are flexing and bending to vibration.
Ensure that new machines are ready to meet life cycle plans. New machines can fail, but with an acceptance test designed and performed by the highly qualified Vibration Guys™, confirmation that the machine will perform as required is ensured.
Permanent Vibration Monitoring Installations
Permanent vibration monitoring installations allow The Vibration Guys™ to monitor your critical equipment dynamically online. This application is ideal for machine trains with high downtime costs, high failure probabilities, rapid damage progression, and those with high environmental and safety risks.
