Vibration Analysis

Predictive & Preventative Maintenance

Predictive Maintenance

The Pruftechnik VibXpert data collector with Omnitrend Software is also utilized to perform vibration analysis on a multitude of equipment. Our technicians can analyze collected data and provide reports that identify problems in the very early stages of failure. Trending this data over periods of time is also a powerful tool, allowing our customers to schedule repairs, thereby avoiding downtime and costly emergency repairs.

Laser shaft alignment on a 2500HP electric motor and screw compressor. After the cold alignment is completed the transmitter and receiver are repositioned on both pieces of equipment so that the thermal growth and torsional deflection can be documented. Those values can be utilized for the hot alignment.

Laser Shaft Alignment

Having optimum facility production and reliability starts with proper equipment installation and setup, as well as performing regular maintenance. Using the Rotalign Ultra, we perform precision laser shaft alignments and provide reports for your documentation that indicate initial misalignment and the actions taken to correct it. From start-ups and annual alignment verifications on multi-thousand horsepower compression equipment in the gas and oil fields to critical equipment such as fire pumps and chilled water pumps in buildings downtown, RMSC will enhance equipment operation, reducing downtime and costly repairs.

Reliability Services: Rotating Mechanical Solutions Corp. offers a full line of state of the art equipment to perform services including vibration analysis, laser shaft alignment with Live Trend capability, laser belt alignment, laser roll alignment, ultrasonic testing, infrared thermography, on site electric motor evaluation with online and offline testing capabilities, and dynamic balancing both on site and in shop on our high speed balancing stand.

Condition Monitoring: A major component of predictive maintenance, it is a process of monitoring a parameter of condition in machinery.

Electric Motor Evaluation: Online testing (performed while the motor is in operation) and offline testing (performed on deenergized motors) can provide critical information to the overall health and condition of an electric motor, including insulation testing (resistance to ground and capacitance to ground), motor circuit analysis, and power quality. Based on the results of these tests, recommendations can be made as to what corrective actions need to be made.
