Understanding the Benefits of Vibration Analysis
Vibration analysis is challenging, but you can greatly reduce the costs associated with the operation of rotating equipment.
Do you do maintenance in order to meet production goals, increase running time, increase plant efficiency and thus increase profitability?
Early detection of mechanical damage and rapid response, maintenance correction and costs can be reduced.
Catastrophic failure, secondary damage, additional spare part cost, unnecessary overtime costs.
From the spares that need to be kept, to the overtime of maintenance hours, secondary damage to equipment, and loss of production time.
Break down Maintenance
Break down maintenance is also known as “run to failure”, “reactive” and “hysterical “maintenance among other things. It is the practice of allowing machines to fail rather than taking any pre-emptive action.
When to run breakdown maintenance?
Machine is not critical, does not impact production and is inexpensive to repair or replace equipment.
Predictive maintenance program gives a warning of failure and then the replacement can be ordered and a repair scheduled.
That’s great, but why did the bearing fail?
Alignment, balancing, poor maintenance or the base of the machine?
Knowing that answer and taking the required action to remove the cause, should enable the machine to last longer.
The objective of optimized shaft alignment is to increase the operating life span of rotating machinery. Misalignment produces excessive vibration, noise, coupling, and bearing temperature increases, and premature bearing, coupling, or shaft failure.
There are three types of motor misalignment: Angular misalignment, Parallel misalignment, Combination misalignment
Thermal scanning (IR) is used to identify and locate areas of abnormal heat in electrical and mechanical systems, which can help predict and prevent failure on your systems and equipment.
Thermal Scanning can also be used in daily inspections without open the equipment to inspect.
Couplings for misalignment, Bearing, Rotor and shaft defects, loose connections etc.
What makes us stand out from other companies is that with all our lubrication products, we deliver a service with our product and having the advantage of condition monitoring technics, we can change and improve lubrication, structure if needed and pipe lubrication points away.
By assisting with the vibration analysis we can show the client what is wrong and how we can improve the situation.
