Vibration Analysis

What are Vibration Analysis Techniques?

Vibration Analysis Techniques are the interpretation of aquired vibration analysis data, to determine the cause of specific machinery defects.

Vibration Analysis Service

Vibrotech has the ability and equipment to tackle the most complex of vibration analysis issues. This is the foundation on which the company has been built. As well as being able to identify the causes of vibration through Vibration Analysis, our engineers are able to correct most faults with our Laser Alignment and In-situ Balancing services. These services are used by our customers overseas and offshore as well as throughout the UK.

Below is a list of the most popular tests and failures that can be carried out and identified using various vibration analysis techniques:

Bearing FailureWear and Lubrication Faults
Phase AnalysisUnbalance, Bent Shafts and Cocked Bearings
Time WaveformsWorn/Damaged Gear Teeth
ResonanceBump Tests
Critical SpeedsRun up, Coast down
MisalignmentDynamic (i.e. with machine running)
LoosenessStructural, Internal & External
Drive BeltsWear & Misalignment

Opposite are some sample reports from a mixture of case history Vibration Analysis tests.

Root Cause Analysis

Through our close working relationship with OEM's and repair facilities we are able to access information and feed back identified machine defects. This not only identifies current faults, but assists in any future Route Cause Analysis.
