Vibration Analysis Services
Vibration analysis is a widely used condition monitoring technique that provides critical information on the health of rotating machinery. It is used to inform preventive maintenance programmes by detecting subtle changes in the vibrations (oscillations) emanating from machinery. The specific frequencies and patterns of vibrations (known as signatures) allow Ropax to detect a range of mechanical issues before they develop into faults, such as worn bearings and gearboxes, or general imbalances in rotating parts.
By monitoring periodically over time, the deterioration rates of internal components can be calculated, allowing maintenance works to be scheduled at times to suit production demands. This approach maximises the returns on your asset and reduces the likelihood of unexpected downtime resulting from sudden component failure during peak demand times.
Ropax can perform single or multi-channel data acquisition and analysis at commissioning stage (vibration acceptance testing) or whilst in service. These services can be performed using our own Zonic Book 618E and Ez-TOMAS Analysis software, or using a clients existing system. The Zonic Book 618E and EZ-TOMAS software offer full vibration amplitude and phase analysis capabilities for fault diagnosis. The software analysis features include: Trending, Time waveform, FFT, Waterfall Plots, Orbit Plots, Shaft Centre Line Plots, Polar Plot, and Bode Plots. Both AC and DC signals can be interrogated via the Ez-TOMAS software.
