The Predictive Maintenance Value of Vibration Monitors

Falling costs and greater simplicity in vibration monitoring systems enable plant operators to do predictive maintenance on high-value and basic equipment.
The Predictive Maintenance Value of Vibration Monitors
Vibration sensors (accelerometers) must be mounted correctly in order to yield useful information about machine operating conditions. They can detect conditions such as imbalance, bearing wear, misalignment, cavitation, looseness, gear defects and belt problems.

Water and wastewater plant maintenance has undergone a revolution. Operators have moved from routinely servicing machinery at predetermined intervals regardless of condition to applying predictive maintenance.

Until recently, costly and complex technology and low awareness of...
