Just as the doctor examines his patient, the vibration specialist also checks out the machine when its condition worsens. The first signs appear with excessive vibration values, which are recorded during condition monitoring. The specialist uses high-performance analyzers and suitable methods to find the root-cause of the increased vibrations in order to remedy the problem as soon as possible.
PRUFTECHNIK has more than 30 years of experience in the development and manufacturing of portable vibration analyzers for industrial use.
Vibration analysis - An overview
Vibration analysis consists in listening inside the machine. Each component vibrates differently and generates a characteristic noise that leaves a typical fingerprint in the spectrum in the form of a linear pattern. If damage is present, the pattern stands out from the noise floor. This allows the specialist to recognize, for example, whether the problem comes from unbalance, misalignment or bearing damage. In addition to an accurate diagnosis it is generally also possible to determine whether urgent action is necessary or whether it can wait until the next scheduled servicing.
Vibration analysis - The benefits
The bottom line is that vibration analysis benefits both the operator and the maintenance technician:
