Vibration monitoring with VibChecker
Vibration monitoring is a cost-effective predictive maintenance strategy. Changes in the vibration level always imply changes in operating condition, but in most cases, vibration measurement can detect a problem long before the machine is damaged. Conducting regular vibration measurements on fans, motors, pumps, compressors, and other rotating industrial machinery can help prevent premature replacement of machine parts and minimize downtime.
Machine vibration is the cause of many problems in industrial equipment. When integrated into your normal maintenance activities, periodic vibration measurement with VibChecker will go a long way to help keep your equipment operational. The instrument provides early detection of problems such as imbalance, misalignment, looseness, and gear mesh. Suited to both new and experienced users, VibChecker covers the basic vibration monitoring needs in predictive maintenance. Designed for quick and accurate on-site vibration checks, VibChecker makes a proactive approach to maintenance economically feasible for everyone.
The VibChecker instrument can be used to effectively monitor vibration levels in most types of rotating machinery, such as electric motors, fans, and pumps, in a diversity of industrial environments.
VibChecker is a compact-sized instrument for vibration measurement in the 10-1000 Hz frequency range. Measurement results are immediately and automatically evaluated against ISO standards with a clear, intuitive indication of vibration severity. Measurement results can be stored for trending of vibration levels and follow-up.
The instrument measures either with a built-in probe (VC200) or with an external transducer. It is push button controlled and basic measurement data are entered manually. Evaluated measuring results are indicated by green-yellow-red symbols, and a time signal and its FFT spectrum are produced for easy pattern recognition. Measurement results can also be transferred to a file for further processing, e.g. in Microsoft Excel.
