What is Vibration Analysis

Vibration Analysis (VA), aims are to reduce maintenance costs and equipment downtime by detecting equipment faults in there earliest detectable state.  Vibration Analysis is a key component and cornerstone of a Condition Monitoring (CM) programme, and is often referred to as Predictive Maintenance (PdM). Most commonly VA is used to detect faults in rotating equipment (Fans, Motors, Pumps, and Gearboxes etc.) such as Unbalance, Misalignment, rolling element bearing faults and resonance conditions.

Vibration Analysis uses a Time Waveform (TWF), but most commonly the spectrum is used, derived from a Fast Fourier Transform of the TWF. The vibration spectrum provides important frequency information that can pinpoint the faulty component. See the FFT video on how the the time wavefrom becomes the Spectrum
