Wired or wireless Accelerometers are used to collect vibration readings which are analysed by software systems.
Vibration levels & frequencies of machines and structures are analysed to detect otherwise imperceptible anomalies. Algorithms are used to identify faults early enough for maintenance teams to take remedial action before those faults develop to become failures.
Our philosophy with Vibration Analysis is that “undetected failures are not an option”. Vibration Analysis allows us to detect >80% of rotating equipment faults. Other techniques like oil analysis, ultrasound and Thermal Imaging are used to complement Vibration Analysis where they are best suited to certain failure modes.
A well managed Condition Monitoring Program ROI is typically between 5 & 7 times!
Professional application of Vibration Analysis will identify the majority of machine faults:
“VA” should be at the core of any integrated Condition Based Maintenance Strategy.
