Hi guys, We are having an issue with a centrifugal pump which needs your advice. The motor has an abnormal sound, the vibration of both motor and pump are fluctuating from 4.6 to 5.7 mm/; the dominant vibration frequency is 100 Hz and the strange frequency range of 2800 to 3500 Hz appears. The brief information of equipment as follows: In May 2016, the vibration increased at both the motor and pump from 3 mm/s to around 6 mm/s and fluctuated from 5.3 to 6 mm/s, the dominant frequency at 100...Read More...

An unknown frequency observed at Gearbox

Hi, This is equipment of Steel Industry from Bar Rod Mill unit. Equipment is Mill Stand, Which is having reducer gear. The Input shaft have 24teeth and mating gear has 63teeth. Intermediate having 19,66 teeth and output shaft having 31,31teeth. I didnt have any problem with vibration whenever the higher dia bar is rolled vibration will be 4.0mm/sec peak and during lesser dia bar rolled it will 2.5mm/sec peak. The spectrum is showing a high amplitude dominant peak of 73.1orders of input speed...Read More...

We have 5 identical pumps running side by side all at the same speed, and I know what you're going to say... "Their vibration frequencies are modulating each other!" Unfortunately I don't think that's case (but I could still be wrong). We've only noticed on one of the motors that there is this relatively long beat frequency. See attached. Bearing faults aren't lining up, rotor bar and stator slot frequencies aren't lining up either. The motor is a 400HP, GE L5011VP, 460Volts, 1180 RPM. It is...Read More...

Oil Vapour Extraction Fan - High Vibration

Dear Friends, I need your suggestion regarding oil vapor extraction fan. Motor speed 2900 R.P.M, we are frequently facing high vibration in the fan. Spectrum indicates unbalance 1X. High radial & axial vibration. Especially after P.M The vibration was very high.in P.M we are replacing the filters only. Sometime new Fan itself high vibration .Yearly 3 times we are replacing new fan drum,Due to high vibration. It’s very expensive. What necessary action or modification required in this fan.Read More...

Worn - Idler, rollers on conveyor belt for mining operation

Some of the rollers/idler surfaces may have "worn spots" on them. It's conceivable that the ware spots could create noise in the ultrasonic frequency that can be detected by the ultrasonic receiver. Worn "through" spots (hole) could conceivably deposit materials into the roller and the material could be heard using ultrasound. This may/could sound like slag in a roller/shaft, after the end-caps are welded onto the ends of pipe shaft. My question is specifically to those with belted conveyors...Read More...

Creating an epicyclic gearbox with RBM wizard

Greetings, I have some problems when trying to create an epicyclic gearbox with RBM wizard in AMS machinery suite, we have a gear box that has a bevel gear as an input from the drive, which is connected to the first stage's sun by a bull gear and a shaft, the problems to create such gearboxes with RBM is as follow: You can only create one type of gearboxes at time (simple or epicyclic), and when you choose epicyclic you will not be able to have the bevel gear inside, you only have the...Read More...
