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.
