Cooling Tower Fan High Motor Vibration

Dears, We have a CT made by 22 cells, separated in 2 Blocks. Last week one of them tripped because of HH vibration on the Motor side (the limit is set to 9mm/s). I checked the spectrum and I found a “strange” frequency that I have never seen on these fans (around 88Hz). The behavior was confirmed by the SKF portable instrument. The speed of the motor is 1485 rpm and fan speed is 106 rpm (6blades). I suspected some looseness so I suggested to make an inspection, looking for some loose bolts...

High Vibration due to flow turbulence

Muhammad Faizan ·
When Turbine driven boiler feed water Booster pump was running on recirculation(minimum flow condition) the vibration readings at pump DE and NDE vertical were very high but when pump started to give flow to turbine driven pump(Main Pump) its readings drastically dropped. I saw the spectrum the peak is exactly at the vane pass frequency. Therefore it is suspected that this is purely due to flow turbulence when pump is running in minimum flow condition.

Hello to everybody, We have 6 ball mills in a cupper concentrator plant. These mills suport over two pad bearings (fixed and floating) that are lubricated with high pressure oil.

High axial vibration at 18x in a flowserve pump electric motor.

Re: High Rms @ x1 Axial

Edwin de B ·
Do you have any comparison with previous values or other simular equipment? Diesel engines can generate high vibration without anything wrong. If there is an increase in axial vibration, especially 1X and, as i see in your spectrum, harmonics of it, you should check the alignment and if the coupling rubber got hard by aging.

It just got alarm bells ringing in my head with the high reading of 8.41on the generator which is basically an emergency back up generator with the least running hours on.

Re: High Rms @ x1 Axial

I'm not sure about the Vulkan coupling but on a competitor type of coupling in a diesel driven test stand application there was some recommended maintenance in the form of application of a rubber lubricant. We used to do this every six months. It was a relatively simple task that involved unbolting a plate and spraying rubber lubricant on the rubber blocks. It might be worth checking if the Vulkan has a similar maintenance procedure.

Re: high absolute vibration in critical speed in a gas turbine

It is likely the rubbing when high vibration happen which show that it is dominant in 0.5X, the 2x in normal situation is due to misalignment but it is also by some other effects. how about the rotor? it is from OEM? how about a residual unbalance? The bent shaft after long time remaining in horizontal storage is able to be a case in this situation. But where the transducer probe located? how about the diagram of machine arrangement? type of bearings? how about clearance? type of...

Can you provide a multiple point waterfall, include HVA directions, at each bearing location on the gearbox and pump, if you can get the motor in there also that would help. 18 points maximum allowed in AMS software Resolution of your data is not sufficient enough to determine what frequencies are present, can you take a set of velocity readings on this machine with a 6000 cpm fmax, 1600 LOR, 4 avgs, 50% overlap.

High frequency plots may exhibit orders or other higher frequencies this HTML class. Value is...

In that case the CSI Function of Bump Test "Equipment Running" will be on any help?

However the suction 86" line which is coming from a Caustic crystallizer must have some supports (which am not very aware of).
