Basic Machine Vibrations An analyst without a knowledge of the basics is like a machine with an inferior foundation. .

It can also be referred to as a "cyclical" movement .What is vibration? • Vibration is a "back and forth" movement of a structure.

What Is Vibration Caused By ? Imperfections in the Machine caused by: • Design • Assembly • Manufacture • Operation • Installation • Maintenance .

What Is Vibration Caused By ? • What Are Some Common Machine Problems That Generate Mechanical Vibration: • Misalignment • Unbalance • Worn belts & pulleys • Bearing Defects • Hydraulic Forces • Aerodynamic Forces • Reaction Forces • Reciprocating Forces • Bent Shafts • Rubbing • Gear Problems • Housing Distortion • Certain Electrical Problems • Frictional Forces .

What Are Some Common Machine Problems • That Amplify Mechanical Vibration (But Don't Cause It): • Resonance • Looseness .

By performing this task effectively.Why Do We Measure Vibration ? 1. we can extend the life of bearings and other components that are absorbing the stresses and fatiguing forces that are causing the symptom of excessive vibration. 2. Diagnose the root cause(s) of any excessive (destructive) vibration. we can eliminate catastrophic failures due to component degradation. Assess the condition (primarily the bearings) of a machine. By performing this task effectively. .

For example. The time between onset and failure in these cases .which are rare may take only minutes (in extreme cases).) are not protected against via any program that only collects data periodically. many programs are based on monthly data collection. days or weeks. loss of lubrication.e. . sudden fracture of a component. This is not a failure of the program or the technology any more than driving a fork truck into a machine and destroying it. hours. The good news is that the vast majority of potential and actual failures will NOT fall into this category and DO lend themselves to being detected. Any event occurring during that month interval may cause failure prior to the next data collection. etc. monitored and corrected through a well-run vibration program.Why Do We Measure Vibration ? It should be understood that short-term event-based failures (i. .

What Vibration "Characteristics" Do We Measure ? Amplitude Frequency How much movement occurs? Severity of vibration How often the movement occurs? What’s the defect or root cause? Phase In what direction is the movement? .

Common Bearing Numbering Convention Consistency Is The Key .

Common Bearing Numbering Convention

Belt drives can be oriented in any direction and thereby require a directional convention.

Vertical machines present another opportunity to assign a directional convention since parallel to the shaft (axial) is now straight up out of the ground

• Severity of vibration based on ISO 10816 • What are its units? – Displacement - measures the total distance the transducer (bearing) travels back and forth during one 'cycle' of movement (a 'cycle' is the process of moving from one extreme to the other and back again to the starting point). – Velocity - measures the maximum speed the transducer achieves during a cycle.
– Acceleration - measures the force(s) that are causing the back and forth movement.

What Does Phase Tell Us? • Phase enables us to compare the relative direction of movement of various locations on a machine • Accessories used with vibration analyzer – Strobe light – Optical Phase Sensor .

It is shown here at 12 o'clock but could appear at any angular location. we need a convention to use.Phase Convention • In order to discuss phase at the most basic level. general phase analysis (what we will be discussing here). Phase is represented by the 360° of a circle. Since a high degree of accuracy is not required in a simple.e. The phase "angle" is based on where the mark appears (the red key in the example shown here) on the clock face. phase is most easily referred to in terms of clock face numbers: 1 o'clock through 12 o'clock. balancing or phase monitoring on a turbine) will require the use of specific angular references (0 .359°). • .

This applies to spectrum plots as well. simply a number from which we make certain generalizations about the machine long as you are CONSISTENT (another very important convention) !! Amplitude is. precise number above which disaster awaits and below which you are safe. . • Be aware of the conversion if comparing values between programs that use RMS and Peak values.

Database Acquisition Decisions are only as good as the facts they are based on .

Deviation from the norm then triggers further investigation to determine the source and correct the actual cause of the excessive vibration. unfortunately. Once created. right at the beginning .database setup. it is very difficult to develop new ideas or drastically change things without creating a colossal mess. • A monitoring program tracks the condition of your equipment through the measurement of vibration amplitudes on a regular interval.Database Set up • A crucial step for any monitoring program is. This is unfortunate because it is a crucial task that is performed when the people doing it are most likely inexperienced and of limited education in the field. .

However.Purpose of Monitoring Program • To be sure. are always a wise course of action to take before proceeding with any corrective actions. a well designed vibration monitoring program will nearly always give you a specific direction in which to search for a problem and it will help you prioritize work by gauging the severity and source of most of the problems you will encounter. further analysis. or at the very least confirmation checks. .

Fault Diagnosis Frequencies are the key to the analysis .

k. an "FFT". a. allows you to assess severity (with the amplitude) and helps identify the source (with the frequency). • A spectrum. • This is the most commonly used analysis tool and is usually sufficient protection for general speed machinery.What is FFT? • FFT – Fast Fourier Transformation • Whereas a Trend is amplitude values versus time. a "Spectrum" Plot is amplitude versus frequency. .a.

For instance.A "base" cursor that can be moved to any frequency and identifies the amplitude at that frequency.Activating this tool creates additional cursors at frequencies to either side of the base cursor. the 2nd sideband cursors will be 100 cpm away from the base cursor. • .FFT Tools • • Moveable Cursor . If the base cursor is located at 1x rpm. etc. Harmonic Cursors . the 3rd will be 150 cpm away. etc.Activating this tool creates additional cursors (as many as are required) that appear at integer multiples of the base cursor. This is the most important analysis tool available. If the 1st (closest) sideband cursors are located 50 cpm to either side of the base cursor. 3x. 4x. additional sideband cursors (as many as required) will each be located an additional 50 cpm away. Sideband Cursors . harmonics will appear at 2x. All harmonic cursors are at higher frequencies than the base cursor.

Time Domain • Time domain analysis is a powerful but intimidating tool – Slow Speed Equipment (< 300 rpm) – Sleeve Bearings (particularly if readings reflect true shaft movement) – Gear Applications • This is where Kurtosis is applied .

Bearing defect due to mounting problem (Kurtosis) .

Enveloping .

Processing of Enveloping • • • Filters are used to help process the signal and focus on any impacts that may be occurring. The filters come in two classes: Envelope filter . Each manufacturer sets up its own signal processing and filters. although they each provide similar information. • • . Therefore.this type of filter sets a frequency 'envelope' that includes a high frequency (Fmax) and a low frequency (Fmin).this type of filter eliminates the Fmax but still sets an Fmin filter below which all vibration influences are filtered out. they are not directly comparable in the amplitude realm. Any vibration occurring outside that range is filtered out. Hi-Pass filter .

Like other aspects of vibration analysis. time domain. It is a powerful tool but must be used with care.Words of Warning • • The enveloping spectrum is extremely sensitive. Enveloping spectra should be used in conjunction with other analysis tools (velocity and acceleration spectra.) before performing any corrective actions. it can detect bearing defects before they have migrated to the surface of the bearing. For instance. your experience. etc. thermography. • • . It will pick up impact energy that is not necessarily a problem or is a very early stage problem. Pulling the bearing at that point will not reveal a defect and may cost you something more valuable than money credibility. experience will help greatly as it is acquired.

• It is important to note that resonance does not cause vibration it amplifies it.

Cavitation symptoms: • • • • • High frequency, random vibration. Sounds like the pump is pumping gravel. Although amplitudes may or may not be high enough to affect bearing life significantly, cavitation causes excessive wear on the impeller and other internal components. May come and go from one collection to the next as load varies. First step should be to assess operational parameters - flow rates and pressure - that can also influence this vibration. Actual flow & pressure should be compared to the pump curve and design point of the pump. Insufficient flows and/or pressures lead to cavitation. Second step should be an inspection of the internal components for excessive wear with particular attention paid to the impeller vanes.
