Triaxial accelerometers are a useful combination of three sensing pellets, each taken from a single-axis accelerometer and oriented in a new package to cover all three Euclidean axes, that can quickly evaluate a machine’s condition. Obtaining data from just a single measurement axis can certainly clue you into developing machine faults and their severity, but monitoring all three axes, especially at both ends of the machine, gives the clearest picture of overall machine health.

There are many faults that cause a rotating component to breakdown and fail, some of the most common being misalignment, unbalance and soft foot. One of the most common faults that cause a component to breakdown are bearing defects.

As predictive maintenance teams in industrial facilities strive for a more complete picture of their equipment’s health, high frequency vibration measurements have become a crucial addition to identify faults such as motor and pump bearing defects and gear tooth inconsistencies in high-speed gearboxes. As a result, there is an upsurge in demand for vibration sensors with a high frequency response.

‘The Cloud’ refers to software, services and data that are stored on the internet. However, this data is not just stored in a random location; it will be located on a group of computers operated by a service provider. Typically it will be Microsoft, Amazon, or Google, but other providers are available. These companies have vast arrays of computer servers located in Data Centres around the world, and your data will be kept in one or more of these data centres – and generally restricted to one region (for example, the US or EU) upon request.

The ISO 10816-3 standard provides criteria for evaluating the vibration of machinery according to measurements taken on non-rotating parts, such as bearings, bearing pedestals, or housings. It serves as a general guideline for determining overall machine condition based on the magnitude of vibration and changes in vibration levels over time. While these aren’t always the only factors that need to be considered when identifying faults, the standard is very useful for performing basic vibration analysis.

The size of a motor doesn’t matter if it is a critical motor. In this case study had 2 hp motor failed it would have cost $40,000 a day in lost electricity production. See how the technicians using, newly acquired data analysis knowledge, discovered a heat problem with the motor before it failed.
