➢ VIBRATIONAL/ MOTOR CONDITIONING AUDIT
Vibration Analysis is a Powerful Tool that when integrated into an overall inspection program will help save maintenance cost by: Reducing the Risk of unexpected downtime, Extremely effective safeguard against total cost, Time ordering of replacement parts to reduce expediting costs, Advance planning shortens repair and inspection times.
Specific types of vibration causing problems that can be detected in analysis: Bearing defects or wear, Damaged or worn teeth, Misalignment , Rotating looseness or Imbalance, Resonance of loose components, Blending or Eccentricity, Unequal Thermal Effect & Bad Belt Drives
A vibration analysis program will include the following:
Natural forcing frequencies from the shaft speeds, gear mesh frequencies and bearing frequencies shall first be determined, A record of operational parameters will be established which shall include such items as the lubricating oil temperature, load, history of work done, etc.
The initial visit will establish the baseline criteria, Readings are taken at designated points & Results will determine the source of vibration , Subsequent visits are compared to the baseline such that statistical alarm and warning limits maybe established & Each set of measurements are analyzed for frequency, phase, and amplitude
The service will provide you with a comprehensive report summarizing findings and observations. It will also determine how your data centre fares in terms of compliance with industry best practices. The report will also contain Emerson recommendations, together with implementation challenges and cost implications.
