Vibration Testing & Analysis
Used to determine the mechanical health of machines. Typical measurements include vibration testing to identify mechanical and electrical issues and Stress Wave measurements to identify bearing and gear faults. Including Route Database Creation & Monthly Route Based Vibration Testing, Analysis. Email us for a program overview
Using the IRIS MX from RDI Technologies we are able to detect subtle motion and amplify that motion to a level visible with the naked eye. Spectrum and waveform data can be calculated from the video images. 4X Diagnostics is Trained & Certified to complete testing for you.
Remote Data Analysis
Remote analysis and reporting of route based data, online data or any diagnostic measurements.
Time or frequency based Operational Deflection Shape (ODS) is used to analyze the motion of rotating equipment and structures. MEscope ODS animates a computer generated model of the machine with phase and magnitude data or simultaneously measured time waveform captures.
An experimental method of determining the natural frequencies, damping values and mode shapes of a structure. Modal analysis is needed when machine vibration is amplified due to resonance.
Resonant amplification (Resonance) results whenever forced vibration, from mechanical faults, coincides with a natural frequency. A natural frequency is the frequency or frequencies that a machine “likes” to vibrate or “ring”.
Seismic Vibration Studies
Floor vibration, structure or ground vibration monitoring and analysis. Used for vibration sensitive equipment and slow speed equipment.
Short & Long Term Monitoring
Short or long-term monitoring of vibration or process signals. Monitoring instrumentation is 24 channels and is capable of measuring and storing long time waveform captures, trends, spectrums, waveforms.
Airborne noise measurement used to diagnose vibration on rotating machines or to investigate neighborhood noise complaints, or document fence-line noise and human exposure levels.
Ultrasonic testing is a test method that utilizes sound waves to detect cracks and defects in parts and materials. It can also be used to determine a material's thickness.
Dynamic balancing of rotating equipment in-situ or in a balance stand.
Relative or absolute phase studies to diagnose or confirm the source of vibration issues.
Multi-channel measurement and data analysis of turbine startups and shutdowns. Including Speed, Orbits, Shaft Centerline, and Shaft Position measurements.
Transient Capture Analysis
Long time waveform captures used to study periodic or non-periodic signals. Transient capture analysis is commonly used when impacting or randomly occurring signals are present.
Vibration Sensor Installs
Typical installations include spot face/surface prep, epoxy/drill and tap, and connector/junction box wiring.
