Organised efforts directed towards ensuring long trouble-free operation of rotating and reciprocating machinery, vibration diagnostics, or machinery diagnostics, are now, more than ever, the focus of many industries. Turbines, generators, motors, pumps, and compressors in power and process service, aircraft engines, and automotive drive trains are examples of machines that are required to operate efficiently and safely, or the consequences can be catastrophic both in terms of personal injury and operational costs.
The measurement and analysis of vibration, or rotor dynamics analysis, is a cost-effective, non-destructive method of evaluating machinery condition and diagnosing the possible development of failure conditions. The SignalCalc family of Dynamic Signal Analysers provides a wealth of measurement and analysis options, designed to make effective vibration diagnostics and rotating machinery diagnostics efficient and accurate.
When critical turbomachinery in power generation or process industry service experiences a vibration problem, plant personnel must have the right information in order to make the best informed decision about their machinery. SignalCalc Turbo brings to the rotating machinery engineer and consultant the advanced diagnostics capability required to support comprehensive rotor dynamics analysis of turbomachinery vibration characteristics, including special measurement and graphical tools for analysis of fluid-film bearing machines fitted with proximity probes.
Acceptance testing of turbomachinery on the high-speed test stand often requires complete and accurate documentation of vibration characteristics to meet specific test objectives. Designed to suit the needs of the test engineer in the most demanding factory acceptance test environment, SignalCalc Turbo is well-suited for extended duration tests and delivers unlimited expandability, straightforward user setup, automated reporting, and streamlined in-house calibration to traceable standards.
