Overview of Portable Vibration Analysis
“We are here at a combined heat and power plant within the control room, and we’ve built a database to reflect the machines and assets out on plant itself, and we’re now going to build a route list of machines.”
Measuring Vibration on Turbo Machinery
“We are alongside one of the prime movers at the CHP plant, this is a 25 megawatt steam turbine and to my right we have a 45 megawatt gas turbine. Both turbines have online vibration protection which are monitoring the shaft movement of a shaft and a journal within a white metal lining.”
Diagnosing a bearing defect
“Today we’re on a chemical plant, behind me is the thermal oxidizer unit, it destroys air pollutants from the plant process and then clean air goes up the stack. In this video we’re going to collect some vibration readings from the combustion fan.”
