Vibration Analysis

Vibration Analysis

Unbalanced bearings are always causes of machinery vibration. There comes a time when simply replacing bearings or balancing does not solve the problem. In depth analysis of your particular problem and determining the ‘root cause’ of vibration is the objective of our vibration analysis services. So you need the best tools available to manage your machinery availability. You get the fastest and most powerful vibration data collector out there. Small and lightweight, it’s part of an entire line of industry-leading analyzers. You can stay up-to date on the condition that can bring your asset down, like wear, looseness, imbalance, shaft alignment, motor electrical faults and pump cavitations etc. Which means you can manage your machinery instead of your machinery manages you.

Over the years vibration monitoring and trending has evolved as a prominent source of condition monitoring and fault diagnosis. Every rotating and reciprocating machinery is studied for its baseline acceptable vibration limits upon commissioning and then trended over standard deviations measured in a scheduled vibration data acquisition and monitoring. Plant maintenance activities shift from preventive to proactive by timely addressing the vibration diagnostics, and thus enabling a reliable operation.

Vibration Diagnostics

With the help of state of the art vibration analyzers and internationally trained professionals, IMMUSCO helps in identifying following major issues related to industrial machinery:

1. Structural looseness
2. Rotating looseness
3. Resonance
4. Unbalance
5. Pump cavitation
3. Misalignment
4. Soft Footing
5. Flow turbulence

Vibration Analysis is performed on Rotary and Reciprocating assets of plant:

• Turbine
• Motors
• Pumps
• Compressors
• Gensets
• Engines
• Gear Box

Benefits of Vibration Analysis

Manufacturers that implement vibration analysis services as part of a comprehensive maintenance solution with IMMUSCO Services reward in many areas. Better maintenance of machinery leads to:

• Consistent product quality
• Extended machinery life
• Reduced maintenance workload
• Diagnose equipment problems prior to purchases/warranty
• A reduction in “just in case” parts inventory
• More efficient use of maintenance resource.
