Vibration Analysis by Mechaniscan certified Vibration Analysts ensures longer equipment uptime

All rotating equipment vibrates in some manner however; equipment with functional failures or that is approaching the point where it will breakdown vibrates in distinct predictable ways. Our trained and certified vibration analysts utilize methodology and procedures to assist you in determining where to deploy this technology and provide detailed assessment of the operating condition of the asset. Monitoring critical equipment allows these types of failure modes to be identified in time for corrective actions to be planned and scheduled during routine availabilities. This ensures that uptime and availability are maximized while minimizing ancillary damages and production outages. Commissioning new equipment prior to signing off on installations is the best method of ensuring long productive lifecycle for expansion and repairs.

    Some of the more commonly identified defects identified are:

  • Gear mesh issues
  • Excessive backlash
  • Cracked or broken gear teeth
  • Rolling element bearing defects
  • Resonance
  • Imbalance
  • Misalignment
  • Bent shaft
  • Bearing issues
