Machinery vibration analysis is not magic:


Vibration analysis technology was developed for military purposes in the early 1950's. Over the past 20 years, industries have integrated this technology into existing maintenance programs. Think of vibration analysis as an EKG for your equipment. Vibration analysis allows you to look inside your machines non-intrusively during normal operation, saving costly downtime. Vibration analysis is useful in detecting specific faults early and monitoring the condition of the machine over time. This and other technologies allow maintenance departments to use their maintenance dollars more efficiently.


Today’s vibration analyzers can rapidly collect huge amounts of data. Good Vibrations can turn that data into useful information which will help you to prioritize your machine repairs. Good Vibrations collects data accurately and efficiently. We can provide onsite machinery vibration analysis to troubleshoot your problem equipment as well as long term trending of data in a route based format.


 In this picture you can see the spalling that occurred in the bearing’s outer race; this defect was discovered using vibration analysis and trended for 3 months before the replacement was scheduled. This allows you to repair your equipment on your schedule not the machines schedule. We use the latest data analyzers to troubleshoot high, low and variable speed machines.


Types of faults identifiable using vibration analysis:

  • Imbalance
  • Belt Misalignment
  • Coupling Misalignment
  • Looseness
  • Resonance
  • Bent Shafts
  • Cocked Bearings
  • Lubrication Faults
  • Flow Turbulence
  • Worn Impeller
  • Electrical Defects
  • Anti-friction Bearing Faults
    • Inner Race
    • Outer Race
    • Ball/Roller
    • Cage
  • Cracked & Broken Gear Teeth
  • More.......

Good Vibrations can offer a complete turnkey vibration analysis program for your facility. This could include database creation, data collection, analysis, and a report generated in your choice of formats.
