Abstract:

This paper is a series of case histories encountered over twenty - two years of performing vibration analysis. While each case history is not necessarily outstanding in its own right, they do show the type of problems one sees in an industrial environment. The paper will cover cases that are fairly routine to in depth problems that required rotor dynamic modeling, structural modeling or both. Equipment from paper machines to turbines and pumps vertical and horizontal are presented. Both sleeve bearing and rolling element bearings machines are discussed. This paper is an attempt at providing a resource of information with examples for the inexperienced analyst. The goal of the paper is to help point the analyst in the right direction for the analysis or to jog their memory to look further into the problem. Each history will include a brief discussion on what equipment was required for the analysis. In todays proactive maintenance society, it is thought the data collector is the all encompassing equipment for analysis, in many of the cases, mention of equipment required for each analysis will helpfully dispel this theory.
