Vibration Monitoring

Vibration Monitoring

Vibration Monitoring involves measuring and analysing the vibration levels of components and the environment.

Vibration monitoring is important for manufacturers and users of devices such as cooling towers, gas turbines, pumps, generators, motors, reciprocating compressors, fans and other rotating machinery. Many of the products we can offer for Vibration Monitoring come from our supplier Metrix. Metrix have more than 50 year experience in this field and their products are diverse and well used within the industry.

Because of the industries which require vibration monitoring, many of the Metrix products hold hazardous area approvals such as ATEX and IECEx as well as CE marks for compliance

Industries Where Vibration Monitoring is Important

Vibration Monitoring is important across many industries including:

·         Air separation

·         Cooling tower

·         Oil and gas

·         Petrochemical

·         Waste management

·         Chemical industries

Products are used within these industries to monitor vibration on gas and steam turbines, pumps, gear boxes, cooling towers, compressors, motors, generators and other critical machinery.

Products for Vibration Monitoring

There are a wide range of products available for Vibration Monitoring. The range that Ixthus can offer consists of;

Proximity Products – Proximity systems offer a single field configurable package which can work with probes and cables from different manufacturers. We have products which offer TightView for applications with limited clearance.

Seismic – these instruments are used to measure structural vibration on components such as bearing housings, piping and supporting structures.

Switches – both electronical and vibration switches well suited to a variety of applications for vibration monitoring with hazardous area rating and explosion proof housings available.

Shakers – Shakers are used to ensure that Seismic sensors and transmitters have been installed and are working properly to give accurate results. Shakers are used for calibration and help to ensure the maintenance of vibration products is effective.

Portable Sensors – these are economical solutions and are ideal for obtaining radial vibration casing measurements. As with other products, intrinsically safe ratings and hazardous area approvals are available.

Monitors – local displays, alarm and shut down monitors are available with the ability to communicate using Modbus over Ethernet TC/IP.
