Vibration Analysis

Vibration Analysis

Hire the Finest Vibration Analysis

One of the factors that significantly affect industrial machinery is vibration. Excessive or abnormal vibration can cause fatigue and accelerate partial or permanent damage to the equipment.

It is therefore essential to include vibration measurement in inspection and maintenance plans. These methodologies help diagnose and detect unusual movements that can compromise the integrity of assets. If you have a company that operates machinery, it is essential that you know more about vibration terminology, and that you know the most important tips regarding these analysis methods.

Top-5 Tips for Vibration Analysis (VA)

  1. How is VA Done?

To diagnose the vibration of a piece of equipment, Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) algorithms are used. This mathematical calculation allows decomposing a signal (vibration) in all its frequencies. Using these algorithms, graphs are generated to diagnose the different faults according to their frequencies. Besides, the intensity of each of them can be evaluated as a function of the amplitude of the waves. It can be said that the FFT is the fundamental unit for vibration diagnose.

  1. Parameters Measured in a VA

These are the three essential parameters of vibration measuring:

  1. Acceleration: which gives greater relevance to high-frequency vibrations. It is ideal for checking the condition of bearings, for example.
  2. Velocity: allows the analysis of high and low frequencies. Vibration signals related to velocity are also related to the destructive force, so it is the most relevant parameter.
  3. Displacement: it is more related to low frequencies. It is very useful during dynamic equilibrium, orbits, and ODS (Operating Deflection Shapes).
  4. Faults You Can Detect

With a top-of-line vibration analysis, it is possible to diagnose almost all failures that equipment may have due to vibrations. That is why in most cases, it is necessary to use a second method to verify the VA assessment. These are the most common anomalies that can be detected:

  • Bearing failures
  • Unbalance
  • Misalignment
  • Mechanical Loosening
  • Electrical Motor Failures
  • Resonance and Natural Frequencies
  • Gearbox Failures
  • Bent Shafts
  • Critical Speeds
  • Cavitation in Pumps
  1. How Do You Measure Vibration?

One of the advantages of VA is that it is not necessary to disassemble or stop the device to make the diagnosis, which makes it a non-invasive method. Sensors are one of the most common devices for wave detection. Among them, the most commonly used are accelerometers. They provide a voltage output with amplitude proportional to the vibration acceleration.

  1. Maintenance Plans

Vibration preventive maintenance plans use vibration analyzers. These accurately establish machinery vibration amplitude trends. They can also identify changes in wave behavior patterns, thus detecting anomalies. Today, some proactive maintenance techniques are also trending, which aim not only to predict the times and frequencies of vibrations but also what type of failure they may generate.
