MISTRAS offers hundreds of quality vibration and predictive maintenance (PdM) products including vibration accelerometers, data delivery systems, and a comprehensive assortment of ancillary products.
Rotating machinery in power plants, refineries, manufacturing plants, and other industrial facilities generates mechanical forces during their normal operation, creating normal vibration patterns that reflect the activity involved in regular use. As a machine’s condition deteriorates over time, these forces change, causing an increase in vibration amplitude and frequency.
MISTRAS offers specialized equipment that can help you to analyze the rate of change, which can be used to diagnose the problem in the machine by correlating these frequencies to the forces that are generated by the various components (bearings, couplings, gears, rotors, etc.) which could be wearing or failing. This helps plant operators accurately assess machine health, operating condition, and rates of degradation.
MISTRAS’ vibration technology solutions include:
MISTRAS provides NDT inspection and monitoring technology to provide your facility with the capabilities to efficiently detect changes in vibration and asset condition. Predictive Maintenance (PdM) equipment from MISTRAS helps plant technicians stay on top of asset condition in order to prevent the costly and hazardous surprise of asset failure.
Our systems and equipment analyze your assets while they remain in service, allowing technicians to record and save vibration patterns for future comparison and testing. MISTRAS’ vibration and PdM equipment helps facilities detect damage before it could potentially lead to complete asset failure. Efficient condition assessment technology helps asset operators better plan repair and maintenance activities, which limits downtime and promotes production for your facility.
Some of the most common assets that our customers use our vibration technology to inspect include:
Even new equipment can experience defects and damages that can lead to accelerated degradation and more serious damage. Consistent vibration testing and monitoring allows plant operators to detect discontinuities in real time, so defects and damage can be accurately prioritized and repaired, along with increased insight over the initial source of asset flaws.
Vibration testing can detect defects before they are visible to the naked eye, preventing damage from accumulating to a status past repair. Our equipment can help you effectively analyze key performance indicators (KPIs) in order to assist your in-house or offsite engineering services with technical activities.
Efficient vibration analysis and predictive maintenance can provide sufficient information for cost benefit analyses, return on investment calculations, and asset health assessments, allowing your facility to be equipped with all the information necessary to perform optimal resource and labor allocation.
