Vibration measurement will provide important data on the maintenance status of your equipment.
By analyzing the collected data, faults like misalignment, worn bearings or poor lubrication can be detected. By trending measurements during time (condition monitoring), failures can be detected in an early stage and the data can help to predict the maintenance intervals. A “Smart Maintenance” strategy can be developed to minimize unexpected failures and downtime of your equipment. This will cut your cost on downtime and emergency repairs.
EMHA INDUSTRIAL SERVICES is an experienced partner for reciprocating compressor systems. We can compare the data collected on your machine with ISO 10816-8 and the EFRC guidelines and we are also able to give you advise on how to improve.
Many problems (like insufficient anchor bolt clamping force or poor rigidity in a system part,) can be visualized in an ODS (Operating Deflection Shape) animation. This visualization of the machine movement can help you to detect and solve problems.
Example of an ODS animation:
- FAULT DETECTION
- TRENDING MEASUREMENTS
- ANALYSING MACHINERY VIBRATIONS
