By adopting a combination of preventive and predictive maintenance practices, companies can significantly reduce equipment malfunctions and their associated costs. Vibration analysis is one of the most cost-effective ways to detect and resolve minor equipment issues before they significantly affect operations.
Motors, pumps, bearings, fans, and other equipment and components may vibrate in ways that they aren’t meant to, causing uneven wear and damage. Our vibration analysis process establishes a vibration baseline for each piece of equipment, then compares performance against an equipment database of nearly 100,000 different machines.
We compare the operating history of each piece of equipment with industry thresholds and previous performance metrics. By performing this analysis on a regular basis, our experts can identify emerging malfunctions long before they lead to costly system failures.
A predictive maintenance approach that features vibration analysis helps our customers avoid common pitfalls, including:
