Keep rotating machinery from getting all shook up.

Rotating machinery may have flaws that can cause a significant reduction in efficiency and lifespan, negatively affecting production, equipment operations and maintenance costs. Incorporating vibration monitoring inspections into your condition-based maintenance strategy will ensure your equipment is operating as designed.

Designing a best-in-class vibration analysis program

Effective vibration programs incorporate these important areas:

  • Allocating time and/or resources to run the program effectively
  • Turning the raw data into actionable information
  • Implementing a “closed loop” program process that ensures recommended actions are handled quickly while correctly fixing the diagnosed problem
  • Guaranteeing the consistency and quality of the data
  • Sharing equipment problems and diagnostics effectively throughout your facility or corporation
  • Assigning annual cost benefit dollars to your program’s effectiveness
  • Track and achieve the stated goals

These issues are challenging to both new and established PdM programs. Many programs today simply survive by keeping the basic lifeline of the program functioning; collecting a mountain of data and performing basic analysis. The results are quick and dirty with limited maintenance recommendations. 

Predictive Service solutions track predictive work actions to establish repair effectiveness, new baselines, reviewing alarms for effectiveness, database management, root cause analysis and sharing valuable information across sites.

PDM : Condition Based Maintenance :

As a part of a formal PdM program, Motor Circuit Evaluation and dynamic Motor Current Analysis tests the motor and circuits providing insight into current operating conditions and identifies potential operational concerns. Motor asset management, inventory levels, in-service failures and scheduled preventive maintenance can all be challenges for any facility manager or maintenance professional.


Oil Analysis :

From the smallest motor to multimillion dollar machines, lubricants are the key to their proper function, and in many cases, the key to keeping an entire business operational. All sampling equipment, bottles and labels to facilitate oil sampling will be provided. Predictive Service can train your staff in proper lubrication oil sampling.


Infrared Inspections :

That’s why facility and operation managers continue to rely on this proven, cost-effective means of nondestructive testing to keep their electrical and mechanical equipment operating safely and efficiently. Infrared is a proven and applied technology for early detection of pending failures, reducing risk, increasing operational safety and production efficiency.
