Condition Monitoring Systems

Radial Vibration Monitoring

Radial Vibration Monitoring is the backbone of the entire machinery condition monitoring ethos; it provides invaluable information as to the condition of the machine, and is used in virtually every machinery monitoring installation.

Vibration is simply a measurement of the components of oscillatory motion, and is typically expressed in terms of peak-to-peak displacement, peak velocity or peak acceleration. The particular parameter used is partially based on the environmental conditions at the site to be monitored, but is also conditioned by the speed of rotation, the type of bearing to be monitored, the parameter required and and the potential for damage if failure might occur.
