Vibration is a characteristic of virtually all industrial machines. When vibration increases beyond normal levels, it may indicate only normal wear - or it may be a sign or source of trouble such as shaft misalignment and signal the need for further assessment of the underlying causes, or for immediate maintenance action.
Understanding why vibration occurs and how it manifests itself is a key first step toward preventing vibration from causing trouble in the production environment.
But how can the plant maintenance professional tell the difference between acceptable, normal vibration, and the kind of vibration that requires immediate attention to service or replace troubled equipment?
Make go or no-go maintenance decisions with confidence. The Fluke 805 FC Vibration Meter is the most reliable vibration screening device available for front-line mechanical troubleshooting teams that need repeatable, severity-scaled readings of overall vibration and bearing condition.
