What is Vibration Monitoring and its benefits?

Vibration Monitoring and its benefits: Monitoring the system when it is under vibrations is called vibration monitoring. Vibrations in the system take place for many reasons and some are discussed below. In this article, I am going to explain What is Vibration Monitoring and its benefits in a detailed manner.

Other details of Vibration Monitoring and its benefits:

Explanation of Vibration Monitoring:

How the typical machine problems are detected in a machine when it is under vibration was shown below.

Detect Typical Machine Problems:

    • Imbalance
    • misalignment
    • looseness
    • Rolling element bearing defects
    • Gear defects
    • Pump cavitation etc.

Advantages of Vibration Monitoring:

  • Vibration magnitude is proportional to the magnitude of the problem.
  • Vibration can help to find the location of the fault.
  • Vibration can help to find the cause of the fault.
  • Vibration measurement is non-invasive.
  • Most faults show increased vibrations in an early stage of the deterioration sequence.
  • Vibration can be measured instantaneously.
  • Vibration can indicate severity and deterioration rate of a fault.
Monitoring Benefits:
  • • An advance indication of developing problems
    • Keep people out of hazardous areas
    • Protect health, safety, and environment
    • Monitor inaccessible equipment
  • Complement portable monitoring programs.

The remaining explanation of Vibration monitoring is presented in the PPT which is shown below.
