Can a Machine Learning System Advise You?

There is a new breed of software which is a subset of artificial intelligence (AI), called machine learning. And if you feed them the proper data, these “intelligent” software systems can find relationships, provide advice, and make even decisions for your plant and take action.

Vibration Basics: Mounting the Accelerometer

There is a reason, apart from a mechanical fault in the machine, why the vibration pattern could change. The reason is in the palm of your hand. When the sensor is attached to the machine, the vibration from inside the machine causes the sensor to vibrate, which is picked up by the electronics inside.

A Bit of Ultrasound Theory

Ultrasound and sound are mechanical waves that move through a medium and travel in a straight line. This directionality of ultrasound can be very helpful. Jason Tranter tells us more about ultrasound theory.

An Animated Introduction to Vibration Analysis

Have you ever wondered how vibration analysis works but were afraid to get into the technical jargon? Well, you will love this webinar. Using a ton of 3D animations and animated simulators, we make it easy to understand how vibration analysis is able to reveal the nature and severity of a whole range of fault conditions and conditions that will result in future failures.

Vibration Analysis

Go Beyond Condition Monitoring; Condition Improvement

We all know what a great job vibration analyst’s perform. They are all that stands between a manageable plant and the chaos and mayhem that can result from machines failing unexpectedly. It takes skill, knowledge, and experience to be a good vibration analyst. But in many cases, the vibration analyst is only delivering half of the benefits they are capable of.

Criticality Analysis is Critical

How do you decide which assets should be monitored? How do you decide whether you can justify the use of more than one technology? Criticality analysis provides a means to prioritize which assets will be monitored and how much effort will be put into collecting data and performing the analysis.

One Technology Is Not Enough

There is no doubt that technologies such as vibration analysis, oil analysis, ultrasound and infrared are very powerful. They can tell you a great deal about fault conditions in rotating machinery, electrical systems, and more. But if the criticality warrants it, you will be in a much stronger position if you have multiple technologies indicating that a fault condition exists rather than relying on just one.
