VIBRATION ANALYSIS

DESCRIPTION

APPLICATIONS

FAILURE MODE

P-F Curve

A systemic machine condition monitoring technique that measures equipment vibration with nonintrusive tools in order to extract valuable information about the cause of vibration and quantify Potential Failure as it progresses to Functional & Catastrophic Failure.

The following common, but not exhaustive, applications include:

Common failure signatures include:

  • Mechanical Looseness 

  • Unbalance

  • Misalignment

  • Bent Shaft

  • Gear Drive Faults

  • Rolling-Element Bearing Defects

  • Sleeve Bearing Defects

  • Cavitation

  • Resonant Frequencies
