Rotatek offers condition monitoring service programs which are customized to monitor the condition of your rotating machinery to identify any significant change which is indicative of a developing fault.
Vibration monitoring is a process of continuously or periodically measuring and analyzing vibrations in machinery, structures, or systems to assess their health and performance. It involves the use of vibration sensors to detect and record vibrations, followed by data analysis to gain insights into the condition of the monitored equipment.

Vibration monitoring begins with the installation of vibration sensors, typically accelerometers, at specific locations on the equipment or structure of interest. These sensors measure the amplitude, frequency, and other characteristics of vibrations generated by the machinery’s operation or external forces.
The collected vibration data is analyzed to identify any anomalies, patterns, or trends that could indicate potential issues with the equipment. Frequency domain analysis, time-domain analysis, and other analytical techniques are used to interpret the data and extract meaningful information.
Vibration monitoring is a critical aspect of condition monitoring and predictive maintenance strategies. By continuously monitoring vibration levels, engineers can detect early signs of faults, misalignments, unbalance, bearing wear, and other mechanical issues. Early detection allows for proactive maintenance, reducing the risk of unexpected failures and costly downtime.
