Vibration Analysis & Monitoring

Vibration Analysis is defined as the technique of measuring vibration to identify anomalies in industrial machinery. Using FFT algorithms, Vibration Analyzers separate vibration signals into amplitude and frequency components to facilitate failure recognition.

Vibration analysis technique is capable of identifying almost all the faults that a machine can have. As a result, occasionally analysis need complementary methods to confirm a diagnosis. The following are the most common faults that vibration analysis identifies:

  1. Imbalance
  2. Bearing failures
  3. Mechanical looseness
  4. Misalignment
  5. Resonance and natural frequencies
  6. Electrical faults in motors
  7. Bent shaft
  8. Gearbox failures
  9. Cavitation in pumps
  10. Critical speeds
