Pumps are common in most plant environments and are critical to the operation of many processes. Even with proper installation and sizing, pump problems are a common concern for reliability programs.

As a vibration analyst, your ability to detect the early signs of rolling element bearing defects and track them as the fault progresses is key to your success. Unexpected failures should never happen, and late warnings will not be appreciated by the maintenance or production departments.

Leaks can form practically anywhere in a plant. This includes pressurised systems and systems under a vacuum.While it is important to locate potential safety hazards from leaks, the loss of gases through leaks can be very costly.

Spectral bands can be a very useful tool for the detection of machine faults. However, not all condition monitoring analysts use them or take advantage of their full potential.
The need for reliably detecting reciprocating compressor cylinder leaks is important because this gives an indication of excessive wear or damage of a consumable component, such as the valves (which account for the majority of maintenance), piston rings and packing.
