Today's vibration testing equipment has made huge strides in being able to detect equipment and structural wear. Early detection allows industries to reduce or shorten maintenance stoppages thus keeping an operation running longer.
With a full range of machine monitoring and equipment analysis technology, it's now possible to find any problematic situations up to 6 times faster. Integral parts of the monitoring and analysis equipment are the sensitive sensors that measure the slightest variation from the norm.
The MHC range of on-site condition monitoring equipment is effective, versatile and simple to use. Very early stages of degradation are detected and with proprietary signal processing, the operator can ascertain the current condition of the machinery or structure. The adaptability of the vibration testing equipment makes it capable of being used for high speed or low speed machinery, as low as 0.25 rpm (4 minutes per revolution). The distinguishing feature that makes the MHC series different is the sensors that incorporate a patented crystal arrangement that allows accurate communication between sensors. The clear communication between sensors provided by the crystal arrangement makes the difference between standard and early detection.
Condition monitoring applications have different requirements, and the MHC sensor range can provide from a simple transducer with an integral preamplifier to a microprocessor with built-in alarm levels, fully processed outputs and a built-in trend history. A variety of mounting options are available: magnetic, adhesive, bolts or screws. As an alternative, the 1000 series of the MHC Memo range has a handheld monitoring device that has sensors installed for vibration testing. For permanent applications and for continuous monitoring, the 2000 series of sensors has 10 VDC drives, and for extended coverage the 3000 series is identical except it has 24 VDC. The 4000 series allows for the monitoring of slow and intermittent operations, while the 5000 series are for research and diagnostic applications and include bluetooth wireless versions.
The SIMPAL system is designed for structural monitoring to analyze early metal failure by detecting tiny vibrations. As structures are a static application, the SIMPAL vibration testing system is designed to record the progress of any deterioration over a period of time, and the findings can be viewed on a PC.
