MISTRAS provides vibration testing, traditional and advanced non-destructive testing (NDT/ANDT), and engineering consultations for the implementation and execution of comprehensive predictive maintenance (PdM) programs.

A well-designed PdM program enables facilities to predict potential damages and equipment failures before they happen, enhancing safety and maximizing operational uptime. As a OneSource provider of asset protection solutions, MISTRAS offers the high level of technical knowledge and proficiency in inspection, engineering consulting, and vibration testing solutions necessary for your predictive maintenance program to deliver maximum value.

MISTRAS custom-tailors predictive maintenance services and programs to our client's individual facility needs. This can be as simple as supplying an inspector to collect and analyze equipment vibration data, or as complex as having our engineering, inspection, and mechanical teams design, implement, and execute a comprehensive PdM program.

Predictive Maintenance (PdM) Program Implementation Services

Whether your facility needs to design and implement a brand-new PdM program, or upgrade an existing one, MISTRAS offers engineering support and fully-developed PdM procedures and guides.

Our PdM program implementation consulting services include:

  • Gap Analyses
  • Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
  • Key Performance Indicator (KPI) definition
  • Procedure Development
  • Root Cause Engineering Analysis
  • Third Party Acceptance Testing
  • Training of In-House Personnel

Our PdM engineers bring expertise in database construction/management and data collection, reporting, analysis and documentation. We are also able to assist you maximizing the value of your capital investments and performing a cost-benefit analysis of your program.

Predictive Maintenance (PdM) Inspection & Testing Services

In addition to designing PdM programs, MISTRAS will also execute a full range of PdM inspection and testing services.

We can conduct the entire PdM program for you by assessing your machines and writing your entire database, including analysis parameters and vibration limit specs. We’ll provide an engineering report that diagnoses possible problems and recommends maintenance actions.

Our goal is to provide an integrated solution that lowers facility maintenance costs and increases production and profits.

Our other predictive maintenance services include:

  • On-line Vibration Monitoring
  • Walk-Around Vibration Services
  • Advance Vibration Diagnostics
  • Field Balancing Services
  • Infrared Thermography Inspections
  • Lube Oil and Grease Analysis
  • Ultrasonic Lubrication and Leak Detection Services
  • Motor Condition Monitoring (Motor Current Signature Analysis)
  • Strain Gage Materials Testing and Stress Analysis
  • Laser Shaft Alignment
  • Installation of Permanent Online Vibration Monitoring Systems

Vibration Testing, Monitoring, and Analysis Services

Vibration analysis are used heavily in predictive maintenance (PdM) programs, where MISTRAS technicians measure and identify signs of irregular or excessive in-service movement occurring within rotating equipment. Vibration analysis measures amplitude, intensity, and frequency to detect mechanical failures, such as core/winding loosening.

Vibration analysis is one of the most popular techniques utilized in PdM programs. MISTRAS analyzes vibrations of machinery and rotating equipment as part of condition assessments, enabling us to more accurately predict failures before they cause more costly damages.

MISTRAS' vibration sensors and monitoring equipment include local read-out meters and alarms that can be wired to your control room for trending and shutdown capabilities. These sensors and systems are useful for machinery in locations that may be difficult or unsafe for personnel to access. Vibration systems also provide consistent and accurate trending data on operating conditions, helping operators make more informed maintenance decisions.
