All rotating machinery like pumps, motors, gears, ecc . during their normal functioning generate vibrations with measurable values and frequencies through specific instrumentation. The measurement of vibration levels that exceed the predetermined amplitude range indicates the presence of an anomaly, which could affect the quality of operation of the machine, or its operation itself, leading to a breakdown, and therefore to plant shutdown.
The periodic monitoring of vibration measurements allows the identification of the anomaly and for this reason a prediction of a probable breakage period. In this way it is possible to plan the moment and maintenance intervention mode with obvious time and cost saves.
Vibration measures analysis on rotating machinery means monitoring its actual functioning. Vibrations can be measured with online systems, permanently installed on the machines, or with portable equipment at fixed intervals. In both cases, ISE offers a high quality service for data analysis and acquisition through the use of advanced equipment with the support of Vibration Institute accredited analysts that work in accordance with ISO and ANSI procedures.
The ISE vibration analysis service provides various implementation possibilities: in the Full Service solution, the acquisition, data analysis and reporting activities are managed by ISE technicians. In other cases, the measurements are carried out by the customer and the data is automatically transferred via a database replicator system to ISE, which analyzes the data and prepares the report.
