What is Vibration Monitoring?
Vibration monitoring is a predictive testing science that has a wide range of applications. This nondestructive form of analysis can identify precursors to machine failure, making repairs or part replacements possible before catastrophic failure occurs. RTS offers vibration monitoring services to industrial and commercial clients.
All machinery produces vibrations while running normally. Vibration monitoring technologies plot this as a waveform of amplitude over time. Spectrum analysis breaks this signal into individual frequencies, converting the data into a spectrum of frequency and amplitude. Our experts can search for abnormalities, using the information to calculate more detailed, specific data about the machine’s operating condition. This examination can apply to many types of equipment, including:
  • Hydraulic pumps
  • Electric motors
  • Gearboxes
  • Mixers
  • Cooling tower systems
  • Air compressors
  • Coolant pumps
  • Mills
  • Thermal oxidizers
  • Conveyor drives
  • Air handlers
  • Turbines
Predictive Capabilities
By analyzing vibrational inconsistencies, vibration monitoring can detect issues before they cause unplanned downtime. Vibration analysis can identify a wide range of issues, such as:
  • Gearbox or bearing failures
  • Mechanical looseness
  • Pump cavitation
  • Imbalance
  • Electrical motor faults
  • Lubrication issues
  • Misalignment
  • Bent shafts
Regular vibration monitoring helps to assess heavily used machinery for changes in performance over time. Identifying potential issues early on allows proprietors to schedule maintenance at convenient times. Doing so through upholding a regular inspection schedule optimizes machine performance without causing any unnecessary maintenance.
Vibration Analysis Benefits
Reliability Testing Services offers custom programs utilizing predictive testing technology. We can supplement your existing vibration or monitoring program or start from scratch by establishing monitoring frequencies, routes, and alarm limits, among other things. Our certified, experienced vibration analysts work to satisfy your facility’s specific needs. Establishing a program can improve safety, maintenance planning, and energy savings. We aim to reduce costs while increasing uptime and efficiency. RTS also performs balancing and alignment to keep client machinery running optimally.
