Rotating Equipment Diagnostics

download_sample_reportRotating equipment diagnostics typically are a result of several failed attempts to resolve a known or perceived problem with equipment. Unlike diagnosing a defective condition that arises during routine condition monitoring, the analyst may not have any history or comparative data to refer to. This leaves the analyst to draw upon current data and his/her experience in diagnosing a problem.

Without the benefit of historical data, the failure trend cannot be established. So it is virtually impossible to determine a projection to failure, for instance when a bearing defect is determined to be in advanced stages, how soon can it be expected to move into critical stages? When will the probability of catastrophic failure become more likely? When using phase and waveform analysis a reasonable determination can be made as to the location of the defect with respect to the load zone. An outer race defect located at the top (11-2 o’clock) is less likely to be aggressive as one at the bottom in the load zone, (4-8 o’clock). But even with this knowledge a determination still needs to be made on the expected remaining useful life of the unit. The customer must then decide if the unit needs to be taken off line and repaired, or schedule to collect additional data to establish the defect's severity and trend with enough accuracy to make a determination to schedule maintenance.

Many times the defective condition is a result of resonance, looseness, installation issues, process issues or of another mechanical related concern that a conclusion can be arrived upon and corrective action scheduled.

CMS has certified ANST Level III analysts and the field personnel to provide accurate diagnosis of equipment vibration issues. Many times the initial data collection is accomplished by CMS personnel and additional data collected via CMS rented analyzers then forwarded to the analyst for additional analysis and trending.

When applicable, CMS technicians also utilize additional technologies such as Infrared Inspection and Oil Analysis to compliment the vibration technology for a more comprehensive diagnosis.
