Nine Minutes of Knowledge
Infrared inspections are now a matter of routine for many commercial and industrial facilities. By proactively addressing incipient or latent failures detected during a single inspection, facility managers are able to avoid costs associated with unscheduled downtime and damage to electrical and mechanical equipment. Even greater savings can be achieved through...

The early detection and fault analysis of bearing problems is crucial. When a rolling-element bearing develops flaws on the races and/or rolling elements, there are four vibration frequencies that can result...

In the last 20 years the industry has improved predictive maintenance processes and the tools used to perform it. In particular, vibration analysis technology has evolved to unimaginable levels.
What is vibration analysis? And more importantly, what do you need to know to start learning about it? Well, I invite you to read this article to explore it with me.

Today, there is a new generation of CMS devices that overcomes the barriers that have traditionally prevented an adequate condition monitoring service on critical rotating machinery. The use of these new CMS, in combination with the usually pre-installed Machine Protection Systems (MPS), requires a proportionally small investment, but provides numerous advantages that increase the reliability of those assets...
As wireless sensor are starting to become mainstream in the condition monitoring world, there are now many more choices to consider when selecting a system to fit your needs. This tip aims to look at the key features that will impact your decision..

Gearbox defects can be identified with a quite high accuracy using vibration analysis. This is because the fact the most common defect frequencies are the fundamental Gear Mesh Frequency (GMF) and its harmonics (such 2x GMF, 3x GMF) which can easily detected.
