  • Fan Balance and Vibration
    Vibration always has been a good indicator of how well a piece of equipment was designed, installed, and maintained. With sophisticated, computerized, preventative maintenance programs, vibration can now also be used as a precursor of future maintenance requirements.
  • Managing PdM with Web-based Software - The Chip Program
    With the advent of thermography, the days when companies had to rely on a vibration-based maintenance program alone to protect equipment are gone. Today's modern PdM program employs an integrated approach that includes vibration analysis, oil analysis, and thermography. In many cases, ultrasonic
  • When to Use Air Bearings and Mechanical Bearings
    in these situations. An air-bearing stage is a rotary or linear positioner that floats on a cushion of air, using one of several preloaded mechanisms, nearly eliminating mechanical contact and thus wear, friction, vibration, and hysteresis effects. These are the most common indicators that an air-bearing stage
  • Using Operating Deflection Shapes to Detect Unbalance in Rotating Equipment
    In this paper, we demonstrate the use of the operational deflection. shape (ODS) of a rotating machine as a means of. detecting unbalance in its rotating components. Our purpose. is to use a significant change in the ODS as an early. warning indicator of unbalance in the rotating components. Tests
