Measurement Points on Air-Cooled HE Fans
This is a question to those of you whose plants have air-cooled heat exchangers with fans. A common brand of this type of asset is Hudson's Fin Fans.
What are the vibration measurment points you/your team use for portable analyzer data collection? I'm also interested to hear from you on the access to the bearing housings from the walking level (grating), what do you do to reach the measurement points.
I've attached an example of the fan's layout to refer to and to give an idea about this type of machine for those who are not familiar with it.
