A reliable and revealing indicator of many different problems, vibration is one of the most useful measurements for machinery troubleshooting. Likewise, it is a key element of rotating equipment health monitoring for problem identification before costly or catastrophic failure occurs.
Accurate diagnosis of lateral and torsional – high speed, simultaneous acquisition of vibration signals as well as process and other machine instrumentation. Baseline measurements for future reference can be recorded for transient operating conditions.
Identify and correct resonance situations within casings, baseplates and piping as well as rotor lateral and torsional critical speeds. External excitation is applied for measurement of the specific natural frequencies and mode shapes.
Modeling complements field measurements for accurate diagnosis and resolution of vibration problems. To mitigate risk, such analysis permits evaluating design modifications before field implementation.
Our experience as leaders in turbo machinery and rotor dynamics analysis and design services since 1987 offers consistent results every time.
