Overview of Vibration Monitoring

Vibration Monitoring is a form of condition based monitoring that involves listening to vibrations in an operating piece of equipment in order to determine whether abnormal vibration patterns exist. Vibration monitoring is an important part of effective asset integrity management, because changes in vibration levels can be indicative of advanced wear and a number of other problems, including equipment coming loose from mountings or malfunctioning parts. Information gathered while monitoring for vibration inconsistencies can be used while planning predictive maintenance activities.
