A Comprehensive Approach to

Machine Vibration Monitoring

Vibration Analysis has been instrumental in advancing machine reliability since its inception. 
 
Vibration occurs when an alternating force or motion is applied to a mechanical system, or when a mechanical system is set off with an initial input and then allowed to vibrate freely.

Independent evaluation on rotating machines and structures can provide detailed information, for quality control and maintenance purposes. Evaluation of mechanical vibration ISO 10816, including other appropriate standards, are used to evaluate plant condition with other important vibration monitoring techniques.

Regular vibration monitoring, otherwise known as Condition Monitoring, has proven an industry success for machine reliability. Dynamic Monitoring services are provided across an array of industry sectors;

  • Energy - Power Stations, EFW (energy from waste), Oil and Gas

  • Paper Mills

  • Aggregates 

  • Water Works and Pumping Stations

  • Recycling Centres

  • Building Facilities

  • Manufacturing

  • Transportation (Railways)

  • Aerospace 

 

Trending vibration data has detected many machine faults whilst preventing downtime, thus increasing plant availability and production across many key facilities and industries throughout the UK. 

In order to determine the frequency of vibration monitoring, a number of factors need to considered in the following aspects:

  • Operating requirements and criticality

  • Type of plant and operating environments

  • High or low speed machinery

  • Business impact caused by machine failure

  • Availability and lead time of replacement parts and machinery

  • Standby / duplicate machines

  • Maintenance intervals and availability of technicians
