Sensors used to measure vibration come in three basic types: displacement, velocity, and acceleration. Displacement sensors measure changes in distance between a machine’s rotating element and its stationary housing (frame).
Application of Vibration Sensor/Transducers: Measurements on Structures or Machinery Casings: Accelerometers and Velocity Sensors Used in gas turbines, axial compressors, small and mid-size pumps. These sensors detect high frequency vibration
What vibration analysis tells you Among the most important mechanical faults that vibration analysis can reveal are: Imbalance: A “heavy spot” in a rotating component causes vibration when the unbalanced
Calibration checks of vibration Probe, extension cable and vibration monitor Calibration Procedure: 1. Physical check of vibration probe and extension cable for any damages, if it is please replaced with same
