1.5X,2X, 3X ,4X multiples causes

y@sh ·
Hello Every one, Recently i am facinga issue in so many motor and pumps in my site. 1.5X harmonics 1.5, 3, 4.5, 6, ........1.5 is dominant 2x harmonics 2x,4x,6x,8x, even harmonics .......2x is dominant 3X harmonics 3x,7x,9x,11X odd harmonics. 3X harmonics 3x,6x,9x,12x harmonics 4x harmonics 4x, 8x, 12x,16x guys anyone please give some valuable suggestion for above mentioned problem.

Loose hold down/anchor bolts on motor/pump/base, loose bearing to shaft/housing, worn bearings, worn/loose coupling and/or its element, rotor stack loose on motor shaft, electrical noise, inner race fault, imbalance, misalignment to name a few Dave

I agree.....when you see harmonics (as you've described) = LOOSENESS It may or may not be the root cause however. post edit - as I re-read this, I'm concerned that you may not be talking about a specific machine but in general. So I would ask you clarify what you mean by "having issues with so many motor and pumps in my site". You dont go into any detail at all and It would seem odd to me that there is a generic problem with harmonics in so many (sic) machines. Harmonics (generally) are a...

High Vibration at 1.5X in electrical motor

Andre Alburqueque ·
Hello everyone, I measured the vibration in the vertical direction of the electrical motor (1800 rpm) shown in the picture below. And the spectrum showed a high peak at exactly 1.5X. Someone could tell me what problem it should be? Thank you

The driven machine is a Homogenizer Rannie APV (3 pistons) with ABB motor. The driven speed is 600 rpm.

Please provide more info, number of lobes, sync gears, model looks like an aerzen? i think its harmonic of a 0.5x.

Walt, totally agree, investigation steps would include searching for structural resonance, on the other hand reviewing my math homogenizer running speed is 600/1800=1/3=0.333x piston discharge frequency is 600*3/2=900 rpm or 900/1800=0.5x therefore i think it could be normal operation for the Homogenizer to show this frequencies. the third harmonic of piston discharge frequency (900*3=2700) is 1.5x motor speed a very odd combination why i was thinking harmonics of 300rpm must be all around,...

Dear Walt, FBurgos, We are gonna make routine monitoring, because I also think that it is a low level vibration. The parameters of instalation are good as recommended by manufacturer. what makes me surprise were both peaks higher than 1x. Any way, we are gonna look how does it change over time. Thanks both of you.

Is hard to understand the problem if we leave all to the imagination, but 3 pistons, and imagin two strokes, I think 300rpm (0.1667x) harmonics would be normal but 0.5x harmonics its loseness

I have not worked on a Homogenizer, but I did some online searching. There is a good possibility that the Homogenizer has an internal gearbox (like some blowers) that further reduces speed of piston crankshaft. According to this excerpt from a pulsation damper supplier, the pulsation frequency is at 3x crankshaft speed (not necessarily at input sheave speed). "the most frequently used homogenizer type with 3 pistons delivering 12000 liters per hour has been used as a reference in the below...

300 rpm for Homogenizer is 0.3333 x motor speed (300/1800) Vibration at 1.5 x motor shaft speed is a symptom of looseness from motor rotation speed. Possible locations for looseness include: shaft bearings, cabinet base at floor/foundation, motor base, homogenizer base, pipes connected to homogenizer and cabinet. Since homogenizer runs at or near 0.333 x motor speed, the vibration at 1.5 x motor speed would be nearly equal to 4.5 x homogenizer speed. Cannot rule out either mechanical...

Vibration at 5X NDE AND DE V for Centrifugal Pump

wss ·
Vibration was observed in a recently overhauled centrifugal pump in 5X at pump NDE and DE V.FFT is attached There is no chance of vane pass effect since the pump was overhauled recently and no damages where observed.

Re: Vibration at 5X NDE AND DE V for Centrifugal Pump

The pump was overhauled as a part of routine maintenance ,there was no indication of vibration prior to overhauling. LPT was carried out on impeller during overhauling and no damages where observed also when we calibrated the rotor for balancing we found that it was already under tolerance. This are the main reasons I ruled out vane pass. This horizontally mounted centrifugal pump acts as a overhung rotor,having a bellow in the suction side and connected to motor using a flexible...

WSS spectrum wasn't sufficient enough for analysing, if you could provide enveloping and TWF will help to know what is fault. try to run motor alone and gathered the data and check if this frequency arise. regards,

Re: Vibration at 5X NDE AND DE V for Centrifugal Pump

WSS Many styles of centrifugal pumps, can you add more detail Most of the time, pumps have 2-3 bearings/shaft/impeller/coupling. So if you truly have a 5x peak synchronous to machine running speed and you have 5 vanes on the impeller, then it is vane pass. Bearings will be non-synchronous data I also see what appears to be harmonics of vane pass, did you change impeller size recently, is there a check valve or valve in general that is stuck or not working properly? Just by "overhauling" a...

The pump was overhauled as a part of routine maintenance ,there was no indication of vibration prior to overhauling. ok, then it should not be vibrating now right....then something changed...is the pump running backwards, just because the valve handle moved does not mean the internals moved, did something fall/collapse and block pump inlet, are flows and pressure normal, did you change impeller size I assume "calibrated" means balanced the impeller This are the main reasons I ruled out vane...

Thank you guys for your reply.The pump is at site and we are service contractors.So is it safe to conclude that occurrence of vibration is not due to any wrong procedure in overhauling (ie. balancing,Replaced bearings and gasket,mech seal test)? Please note we had changed the bearings too.

Greetings Good case study. Team members covered well in all aspects. Please take vibrations on Homogenizer and motor NDE and DE side. When )0.5x, 1,5x and even 2.5x indicating, though the values are on lower end, the looseness is creating in the driving system. Please look into pulley tightness and when was last tightening performed. Rest all others covered by Mr. Walt Strong effectively. Request you to share once the problem identified about the looseness or else any other for this forum to...

Dear Mr.Chary, Its 4.8mm/s now.We are planing to take it down once it peaks over 5.5mm/s and give a check of the valves and other flow condition.The check valve on discharge line is normally on full open or full closed condition.

Greetings team Very Interesting case. only 5X dominating. No problems noticed in spectrum. All unique components are in good condition. 3.84 mm/s at 5X is still in normal condition. However, the cause of 5X dominant can appear due to flow conditions like impeller stall. Check the pump suction and delivery valves, system flow conditions (full flow or throttled flow) Load on motor etc., Pleased to see such isolated case. regards Chary

GREETINGS WELL NOTED. THANKS FOR YOUR FEEDBACK. PLEASE FOLLOW THIS METHOD AND TRY HOW YOUR VIBRATIONS ARE INDICATING. 1. CLOSE DISCHARGE VALVE AND START THE PUMP AFTER FEW SECONDS AT FULL SPEED AT MAXIMUM PRESSURE MEASURE THE VIBRATION SLOWLY OPEN DISCHARGE VALVE AND MEASURE THE VIBRATION. IF FLOW INCREASING TIME VIBRATION RISING IT IS RELATED TO FLOW SURGES CAUSING THE VIBRATION. IF STEADY AT EVERY DISCHARGE VALVE POSITION THEN THE VIBRATION IS NOT FLOW RELATED. ALSO TAKE RUN UP AND COAST...
