Ba- Intermediate Vibration - Analysis Course

ISO 18436-2 Cat-2

The results of these tests yield information that can save maintenance dollars, avoid unnecessary repairs, and help lower repair costs. Particles, moisture, soot, heat, air, glycol, fuel, detergents and process fluids are all contaminants commonly found in industriallubricants and hydraulic fluids.

Quick review [just in case you have forgotten anything]


Learn where sidebands, harmonics, and beating come from

The FFT, averaging, windowing, resolution, Fmax.

What is it, what does it tell us about machine condition, what is a time waveform, what is a spectrum, and what are overall level readings.

Data collection:

Transducer types, mounting methods, mounting locations, recognising and avoiding measurement errors.

Spectrum analysis:

Forcing frequencies, the analysis process, harmonics and sidebands, setting alarm limits.
