By monitoring vibration, we can detect inefficiencies. Comparing against a known model determines opportunities to reduce fuel consumption and lower overall cost.
Vibration Analysis Goals
- Identify increases in power
- Early warning of pending failure
- Record operational conditions
- Evaluate over time
- Simple solutions with trending
Example of Dashboard
The yellow area below indicates an early warning condition within the propulsion plant.
Clicking on Trend Display indicates how quickly the vibration is increasing, and what actions can be taken to avoid catastrophic failure.
By monitoring vibration, we can provide valuable information and appropriate recommendations to the maintenance staff to reduce operational costs.
