Detecting and Analyzing Impact Energy on Rotating Equipment

Let’s end this very busy week with a video which may be of interest if reliability and the management of plant assets falls within your set of responsibilities.

In this 3:45 YouTube video, Impact Analysis with PeakVue and Autocorrelation, Emerson’s Mark Granger demonstrates how to analyze impact energy on rotating equipment. Using a CSI 2140 portable vibration analyzer, Mark shows how the impacts he creates by tapping on the rotor assembly are immediately picked up by the PeakVue analysis.

The PeakVue peak-to-peak Gs waveform is autocorrelated to show whether an impact is from a periodic source such as bearings or gears, or from a more random source such as lubrication.
