I add here a simple Windowing Demo from RITEC. In this simulator, the user can generate single or dual frequency signals, and apply several different types of windows on them to view the effects of non-bin-centered data, whereby leakage of energy to adjacent bins occurs; a result of processing finite-duration records. There are several types of windows available in this simulator including: Hann (Hanning / Raised Cosine), Bartlett, 4-term Blackman-Harris, Flat-Top, and Hamming windows. The... [ more ]

I know this is an old post, but I am also thinking about this. What if the static imbalance is predominant in combination with a parallel alignement fault. In that case I would expect to measure 0° over the coupling, right? [ more ]
Angular misalignment will always show higher 1X in the axial direction. Parallel or offset misalignment will have a 2X component. If the 2X component is 50% or greater than the 1X component, you are likely measuring misalignment. I agree with Bill. Phase is rather ambiguous. Since laser alignment is now predominant, I rarely measure significant misalignment, which makes me "less hated" by the millwrights/mechanics. Note: I said "less" hated. [ more ]

Hello Dave, thank you for your reply. I have attached a cross section of the pump, the model i took readings on is a PFCS440, running at 1500 rpm These pumps are usually used with presses, but work great with other applications, so they the working pressure can continuously be changed, say 10 bar to 700 bar back to 200 bar to 300 and so on, just depending on what the customer desires. And it can also be left running at a constant pressure. Coupling is Flexible- Bush Pin Coupling Mounting:... [ more ]
Vibman, I see you asked this question awhile back, I will offer some knowledge, attached example, 9 piston axial hydraulic pump, varying load every month, velocity data shows piston pass up and down when pressure increases/decreases.

If you can provide additional details of make/model of your pump, how is it driven, operating speed, how is it mounted to earth, does the manufacturer have any vibration limits Dave [ more ]

Luz, Vibration readings can be expressed in different ways some of which are common and standard. You may want to keep using mil rms for your sleeve bearing machines but you take a risk of misinterpreting the readings if you use references based on mil p-p. Bode plot, for example, will be difficult to interpret. Using mil rms after converting mil p-p for shaft vibration (classic horizontal machines) may twist some of the results. For example, vibration alarms are harder to trigger from rms... [ more ]
Hi Ron, Thanks for the feedback. The machinery we are monitoring has sleeve bearings. They are 2000 hp pump units and operate between 450 - 695 rpms. We are tracking displacement due to thrust (mils), vibration displacement (mils pk-pk; or in our case mils rms), and vibration velocity (in/sec rms). I've been taught that vibration displacement is best for machines operating below 600 rpms. I don't know how true that is, but we do monitor displacement and velocity. For most of our smaller,... [ more ]
Luz, First, if someone wants a vibration specification set to mils displacement, then the sensor utilized to measure this should be measuring that as it's native units, such as a proximity probe. That said, the proper units to read would be peak to peak. Because displacement readings are weighted toward low frequency and higher frequencies tend to be attenuated, why would someone choose that parameter for acceptance? I can only think of one reason for using it and that would be for... [ more ]

If there is a mechanical pivot in (or near) the center of the pad, then the curvature of the back of the pad is irrelevant (other than that you don't want it to contact anything through the full possible range of pad tilt).

You are correct James! Walt [ more ]
The peak is at 7200, and the running speed is 3573, so it seems like this is 2XLF and not 2X running speed. Especially since there is a small peak before the one at 7200. That peak seems like it would be 2X running speed (7146CPM). Correct if I'm wrong, please, I'm new to this stuff. [ more ]
2*LF at these levels is relatively common and imo not a concern unless there is a significant deviation from trend or from sister units. There is another peak a few hundred cpm above 3x. If there is no obvious explanation (belt drive or gear drive), I’d be more worried about this, even though the magnitude is smaller. [ more ]

Personally I agree with Allan as far as using ultrasound, vibration and oil analysis to determine if you have bearing issues as well as to make your best attempt to control or eliminate future issues. Infrared is great and I have about 15 years of IR experience. However (again agreeing with Allan) by the time bearing issues show up with IR, it might be to late. You might want to look into a simple lube monitoring system such as the UE 201 or possibly a frequency adjustable ultrasound... [ more ]

In general, cavitation can take place if the suction pressure decreases, flow increases, suction temperature increases or the liquid being pumped changes its vapor... [ more ]

You can test the channels. just create a fake machine and shake the accelerometer in a particular direction. It's very likely that channel A is 1, B is 2 and C is 3.

Until now you haven't mentioned damage. Can you supply some pictures or a description of the damage you encounter? Early on I mentioned that the 1st reduction had 9 assembly phases. Are you aware of the ramifications of that statement and the potential for gear distress? Also, the 150mm flange, can you show a picture of that with the transducer mounted? Depending on the signal path there may not be much attenuation. [ more ]
I understand that you would not normally consider such a low amplitude in the vibration spectra, however my concern for the peaks and their amplitudes evolve from the the fact that the measurement points for this shaft is not in a particularly ideal spot. The vibration has to transmit through around about 150mm of flange before reaching the accelerometer so I find that all of my vibration amplitudes are very low in comparison to the amount of damage I find in the gearboxes. I will take into... [ more ]

Hi Luke, as Sinsk points out Peakvue can be very sensitive - with+ the correct settings if I can add that. So sensitive in fact that you don't want to make a changeout decision based on it alone (in most cases) Sinsk will know that paper machine dryer bearings or the like might show cracked inner races very well in Peakvue but they are almost always there in accel or vel as well.

I perhaps don't understand your question or perhaps you don't understand backlash. Backlash is a the clearance between mating gear teeth and allows gear teeth to mesh without binding. There is a minimum desirable backlash for any given gearset since the backlash clearance also allows for a film of lubricating oil between the teeth.

Alexis, We measure 2 x line frequency because it is usually alternating current. Synchronous motor speed (rpm) = 2 x line frequency (cpm)/number of motor poles In an AC induction motor, there will normally be a small degree of slip so a 4 pole motor on 7200 cpm would have a synchronous speed of 1800 rpm but a running speed of 1750-1800 rpm depending on the construction and load.

It's not "so much" the clearance you should look at to determine the thrust direction as it is the diameter of the wear rings. For years double suction pumps were made with wear rings that were the same size, as technology increased people began to see that this caused "axial shuttling" because the rotor was not loaded in one direction or another (would "hunt" during operation). Now standard practice is to offset the wear rings diametrically .125 or .250 to load the rotor in one direction... [ more ]

If the macine foot is resting solidly on a shim, and the shim is contacting the base solidly, it doesn't matter how tight you get it. The foot won't get any closer to the base than the thickness of the shim. You almost surely have a soft foot. Using a torque wrench just means you are getting about the same gap under the foot. You may still have soft foot related vibration, and the shim may "walk out" from under the foot. [ more ]
