While all machinery vibrates, tracking excess vibration in rotating equipment is key to early identification of asset issues. A vibration program use sensors and tools to measure changes in amplitude, frequency, and intensity of forces that damage rotating equipment. Studying vibration measurements allows teams to discover imbalance, looseness, misalignment, or bearing wear in equipment prior to failure.
Tracking vibration enhances your maintenance and reliability program by:
Vibration can prematurely wear components, shorten the life of equipment, create noise, and result in safety issues. Imbalance or misalignment in rotating assets may crack or break driveshafts and other components.
Leverage customizable and auto-generated thresholds based on asset details and get warning notifications are via email and/or through the LIVE-Asset™ Portal software.
