1 Vibration Analysis Services FES Systems Inc. 1

2 FES Systems Inc. 2

3 What is Vibration? Vibration is the movement of a body about its reference position. Vibration occurs because of an excitation force that causes motion. FES Systems Inc. 3

4 Vibration Terms FES Systems Inc. 4

5 Time Waveform Analysis overall vibration time frequency low freq. high freq. Individual vibration signals combine to form a complex time waveform showing overall vibration complex time waveform FES Systems Inc. 5

6 The total vibration energy measured within a specific frequency range. Overall Vibration includes a combination of all vibration signals within measured frequency range does not include vibration signals outside measured frequency range produces a numerical value FES Systems Inc. 6

7 Amplitude vs. Frequency Vibration amplitude indicates the severity of the problem. Vibration frequency indicates the source of the problem. 1X amplitude 2X 3X 4X frequency FES Systems Inc. 7

8 Vibration- Measurable Characteristics Velocity is the first derivative of displacement as a function of time, it is the rate of change in displacement (the speed of the vibration). Acceleration is the second derivative of displacement, it is the rate of change of velocity (the change in speed of the vibration) Acceleration Velocity Displacement Time FES Systems Inc. 8

9 Scale Factors When comparing overall vibration signals, it is imperative that both signals be measured on the same frequency range and with the same scale factors. NOTE: RMS is.707 of peak. FES Systems Inc. 9

10 Measurements & Units Displacement (Distance) mils or micrometer, mm Velocity (Speed - Rate of change of displcmt) in/sec or mm/sec Acceleration (Rate of change of velocity) G s or in/sec 2 or mm/sec 2 FES Systems Inc. 10

12 Accelerometers Rugged Devices Operate in Wide Frequency Range (Near 0 to above 40 khz) Good High Frequency Response Some Models Suitable For High Temperature Require Additional Electronics (may be built into the sensor housing) FES Systems Inc. 12

13 Velocity Sensors Often Measure Bearing Housings or Machinery Casing Vibration Effective in Low to Mid Frequency Range (10 Hz to around 1,500 Hz) Self Generating Devices FES Systems Inc. 13

17 Resonance typically 10% or greater FES Systems Inc. 17

18 Detection Detection vs. Analysis Alarm limits are established for each measurement. When the measurement s value exceeds its programmed alarm limits, the predictive maintenance software or data collector notifies the analyst of a problem. Analysis Once detected, analyzing exceptional measurements provides insight to the problem itself, and to its root cause. FES Systems Inc. 18

19 Important Frequency Peaks Rotational Speed or Even Multiples Always present but excessive amplitude or multiple harmonics can indicate a problem. Electric motors always have frequency peaks at shaft rotational speed and at line frequency i.e. 60 Hz. Two pole motors will always display a 2X line frequency peak. FES Systems Inc. 19

20 Important Frequency Peaks Gas Pulsation Frequencies Screw compressors - gas pulsation frequency(cpm) occurs at [No. of lobes on male rotor] X [ rotational speed (RPM)] Pumps or fans - fluid pulsation frequency(cpm) occurs at [No. of vanes, lobes or blades] X [ rotational speed (RPM)] Recip. Compressors - gas pulsation frequency (cpm) occurs at [No. of pistons] x [ rotational speed (RPM)] Harmonics or even multiples (2X and 3X) of gas pulsation frequencies always present and are most noticeable on oil separator vessels.

23 Selecting the Machinery Critical - If a failure or shutdown occurs, production is stopped, or machine performance creates an unsafe environment Essential Spared - If a failure or shutdown occurs, production is disrupted Non Essential Spared - If a failure or shutdown occurs, production loss is inconvenienced, however, a spare unit can be brought on-line, or a repair can bring the production unit back on-line without significant loss of production FES Systems Inc. 23

34 Acceptable Vibration Levels Tables are published that show overall vibration levels as a function of rotational speed or vibration frequency for the purpose of determining whether vibration levels are acceptable. As a general rule for compressors operating at 3600 RPM an overall vibration level of 0.3 ips RMS would be cause for concern For piping and valves overall readings exceeding 1.0 ips RMS would be cause for concern though actual stress values induced by the vibration may be quite low and no corrective action needed. Some engineering evaluation should be conducted to determine this. FES Systems Inc. 34

46 Sleeve Bearing Wear Pattern Latter stages of journal bearing wear are normally evidenced by presence of whole series of running speed harmonics (up to 10 or 20). Wiped journal bearings often will allow high vertical amplitudes compared to horizontal, but may show only one pronounced peak at 1X RPM. Journal bearings with excessive clearance may allow a minor unbalance and/or misalignment to cause high vibration which would be much lower if bearing clearances were set to specifications.

56 Stator problems generate high vibration at 2X line frequency (2 FL ). Stator eccentricity produces uneven stationary air gap between rotor and stator which produces very directional vibration. Differential Air Gap should not exceed 5% for induction motors and 10% for synchronous motors. Soft foot and warped bases can produce an eccentric stator. Loose iron is due to stator support weakness or looseness. Shorted stator laminations can cause uneven, localized heating which can distort the stator itself. This produces thermally-induced vibration which can significantly grow with operating time causing stator distortion and static air gap problems. Source: Technical Associates Inc. Illustrated Vibration Chart FES Systems Inc. 56

57 Eccentric Rotors produce a rotating variable air gap between the rotor and stator which induces pulsating vibration (normally between 2F L and closest running speed harmonic). Often requires "zoom" spectrum to separate 2F L and running speed harmonic. Eccentric rotors generate 2F L surrounded by Pole Pass frequency sidebands (F P ), as well as F P sidebands around running speed. F P appears itself at low frequency (Pole Pass Frequency = Slip Frequency X #Poles). Common values of F P range from about 20 to 120 CPM ( Hz). Soft foot or misalignment often induces a variable air gap due to distortion (actually a mechanical problem; not electrical). Source: Technical Associates Inc. Illustrated Vibration Chart FES Systems Inc. 57

58 Broken or Cracked rotor bars or shorting rings; bad joints between rotor bars and shorting rings; or shorted rotor laminations will produce high 1X running speed vibration with pole pass frequency sidebands (F P ). In addition, these problems generate F P sidebands around the second, third, fourth and fifth running speed harmonics. Source: Technical Associates Inc. Illustrated Vibration Chart FES Systems Inc. 58

59 Loose or open rotor bars are indicated by 2X line frequency (2F L ) sidebands surrounding Rotor Bar Pass Frequency (RBPF) and/or its harmonics (RBPF = Number of Bars X RPM). Often will cause high levels at 2X RBPF, with only a small amplitude at 1X RBPF. Electrically induced arcing between loose rotor bars and end rings will often show high levels at 2X RBPF (with 2F L sidebands); but little or no increase in amplitudes at 1X RBPF. Source: Technical Associates Inc. Illustrated Vibration Chart FES Systems Inc. 59

60 Phasing problems due to loose or broken connectors can cause excessive vibration at 2X Line Frequency (2F L ) which will have sidebands around it spaced at 1/3 Line Frequency (1/3 F L ). Levels at 2F L can exceed 1.0 in/sec if left uncorrected. This is particularly a problem if the defective connector is only sporadically making contact. Loose or broken connectors must be repaired to prevent catastrophic failure. Source: Technical Associates Inc. Illustrated Vibration Chart FES Systems Inc. 60
