Vibration Analysis

Your key to maximum machine life…

Vibration Analysis evaluates actual machine condition – preventing damage from machine faults you don’t even know about. Vibration measurements identify individual machine faults and help to identify the root cause, determining if balancing or alignment will correct the problem. Vibration analysis offers advance warning of developing problems so that you can avoid damage to machines and untimely shutdowns. It allows you to KNOW actual machine condition and avoid replacement of good components.


Be prepared, reduce damage, prevent unplanned downtime, enhance safety.


Periodic monitoring over time provides data that makes any deviation from baseline noticeable. This allows you to spot trends through consistent measurement.

What can Vibration Analysis do for YOU?
  • Increase plant safety
  • Increase productivity
  • Reduce unnecessary
  • Reduce power consumption
  • Schedule predictive
  • Increase machine life
  • Prevent early structural failure
  • Replace worn or damaged parts
         BEFORE they cause damage to other
         components (as shown here)

What can be detected?

  • Looseness
  • Gear wear
  • Rubbing
  • Resonance
  • Eccentricity of rotating components
         such as “V” belt pulleys or gears
  • Misalignment of couplings, bearings and gears
  • Unbalance of rotating components
  • Aerodynamic/hydraulic problems in fans, blowers and pumps
  • Electrical problems (unbalance magnetic forces in motors)
  • Deterioration of rolling-element bearings
