Smart Vibration Analysis [Article]

by Richard Bierman It’s a commonly known fact that machine faults can be detected by changes in the vibration of the machinery. It’s also apparent that non-fault related conditions are also detectable in the vibration data. This means that everything related to a machine, good or bad, will show up in some way. Leading indicators, at very low amplitudes, show up in the vibration spectra. As a fault condition worsens, the damage rapidly becomes more obvious and easier to identify in the vibration signature. Once a fault is positively identified, an analyst can sometimes sort through the historical data and often identify the leading indicator that eventually led to the fault condition.
