Vibration Analysis and Wireless Vibration Solutions from Banner

Introduction: What is Vibration Analysis?

Vibration analysis studies vibration's frequency, amplitude, and damping in mechanical structures to detect and diagnose faults in machinery and industrial equipment. Vibration analysis aims to identify the source of a potential or existing problem and provide a solution to fix it.

What are the Different Types of Industrial Vibrations?

Industrial vibrations are a common occurrence in many industries. They cause damage to equipment, structures, and even people if not controlled. It's critical to understand different industrial vibrations and how to manage them and minimize their effect on people and equipment.

The different types of industrial vibrations are:

  • Shock Vibration - This is when an object is suddenly moved or released, causing it to move rapidly back and forth.
  • Random Vibration - An object moves randomly with no pattern or specific frequency.
  • Steady State Vibration - Steady-state vibration occurs when an object moves at a constant rate with no change in amplitude or frequency.
  • Random Excitation - This vibration occurs when something vibrates because it has been disturbed by some external force such as noise or wind.
  • Resonance

The Banner QM30VT Series sensor has a low-profile design and rigid metal construction that reduces resonant interference and increases surface contact, enabling exceptional levels of accuracy in measuring RMS velocity and temperature. They can detect even slight increases in machine vibration and temperature for early identification of potential problems.

The QM30VT continuously monitors machine health and run time and detects unexpected failures such as early bearing failure, unbalance, misalignment, etc. The QM30VT2 works in various machines to identify and predict failures in rotating components. Paired with a Sure Cross wireless radio, the QM30VT2 becomes the ultimate predictive maintenance tool for wireless vibration and temperature monitoring.
