All rotating systems such as fans, pumps, motors, gearboxes and turbines vibrate when they are operating. To measure this vibration signal, we utilise a specialist sensor and software. The vibration patterns change as the system condition changes and this is where Vibration Analysis is used as a tool to improve reliability.
Changing forces within the system generates the vibration which is transferred to the bearings and is the result of rotational and frictional forces. The vibration measured at the bearing of a machine; it is actually the response of the bearing housing to the forces generated inside the machine.
Indeed, vibration analysis provides very early warnings of fault conditions and mechanical problems. Additionally, we can detect faults before there is any affect to the system operations. An example of these faults is:
