Top 5 industrial vibration sensor applications | Fluke

While including vibration sensors in industrial maintenance programs may seem like a daunting task, it has never been easier to screen assets for abnormal vibration. With vibration monitoring, simply install the sensor and start receiving data. With the right vibration sensor, you will have the information you need to make data-driven decisions.

Access data in the plant or across the globe by adding wireless vibration sensors to your maintenance and reliability program. Cloud-based software stores data and enables analysis, giving you actionable insights concerning asset health. Vibration screening is an economical way to monitor more assets by automating data collection, furthering your team’s predictive maintenance journey.

Nearly 90% of machinery benefits from condition monitoring. By including sensors in your industrial maintenance and reliability programs, you and your team will have a clear view of asset health and efficiency.

HVAC Systems

Fans and compressors are critical for ensuring that HVAC systems work properly. View remote measurements on smart devices while remaining at safe distances from the assets. Keep air flowing and machinery cool by installing remote vibration sensors, helping your team pinpoint problems before they occur.

Food & Beverage

Gearboxes, chillers, and rollers drive Food & Beverage operations. Downtime in these systems can cause a ripple effect through the entire production line. Real-time and historical data collected from the assets can be trended and analyzed.

Water & Wastewater

Pump downtime in water distribution and wastewater plants not only has financial costs, but more importantly, it negatively impacts customer access and water quality. Installing vibration sensors on a greater number of assets helps water plant teams move more maintenance in-house, reduce costs, and minimize time-based routes.

Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas operators have facilities in remote places that experience weather extremes, dust, and sand. Engineers and technicians need rugged technology to live up to the rigors of these locations. Instead of traveling to outlying sites, you can see asset status from your monitor in real time.


Scaling condition monitoring programs for enterprise-level facilities may seem cost prohibitive, but it doesn’t have to be. With a multitude of assets, cost-effective installation of vibration sensors is key. Sensors that are easy to install and use enable teams to extend coverage throughout the plant or even multiple locations.
