What is Condition Monitoring?

Condition Monitoring is the process to detect a fault in a machine or equipment by observing parameters such as vibration, temperature and current. Condition Monitoring systems give the opportunity to spot faults that can lead to catastrophic failures and allows maintenance teams to program their schedule. This provide a unique value proposition for taking care […]

Vibration Glossary

Heavy Point: It is the angular position of the unbalance vector at a given lateral position on the shaft. The heavy spot typically does not change with the rotational speed. Received Signal Strength Indication(RSSI): Shows the received signal strength. Larger Rssi value means stronger signal. It takes negative values due to the logarithmic formulation. Subharmonic: […]

How is Fault Detection Performed?

Although the great differences in the nature of maintenance operations in industrial facilities, it contains the processes where similar quantities such as; vibration, temperature, oil quality, etc. are measured. During these processes, data from sensors are converted into different units with transducers and comments are made about system health. RMS (Root Mean Square) is generally […]

Parameter Selections in Vibration Measurement

Vibration measurements are performed to determine the response of machine equipment to both internal and external forces. In mechanical systems, different points of the same equipment are different in geometry, material, etc. That’s why they may have distinctive vibrations due to effects. As an example, when an electric motor operates at high frequencies, frequency of […]

What is Vibration Analysis?

Vibration can be simply stated as a mechanical oscillation around an equilibrium point. In the first stage, vibrations can cause energy wastage and noise, but in later stages; they can even cause the machines to become unusable. This can lead to high maintenance costs, downtime, spare parts costs and even scrapping the equipment you spent […]
