The frequency of encounter with such a defect as misalignment depends on the culture of equipment installation and repair at your enterprise. On mine there are some problems with this, which makes my professional career more diverse. I propose to consider the classic practical case of misalignment and evaluate its effect on vibration parameters.

This article discusses another defect in the design / installation of the fan, which led to increased vibration. We determine the cause and find a solution to the problem.

The fight against vibration of fans is a special niche in the practice of vibration diagnostics. In many enterprises, fans turn a blind eye - they say cheap, low-liability, etc. But in my opinion, fans are the main source of experience for a beginner vibration diagnostics / vibration adjuster. Fans, as a rule, are mounted / operated in violation of the requirements, have low rigidity, and accordingly a huge mass of defects is manifested on them. In this article, we consider the effect of improper installation on the vibration of the unit, we localize the defect and eliminate it.

In this article I want to highlight a relatively rare defect, which is usually called the coupling leash effect. The problem is the uneven loading of fingers in the holes, which leads to an uneven load on the fingers during operation of the unit. As a result, a radial force appears, transmitted to the bearings, the vibration of which we measure. The defect is manifested the stronger, the more fingers in a row are incorrectly loaded (in other words, the more fingers do not participate in the operation of the coupling). Let's move on to a real practice example.

In this article, we consider a practical example of the diagnosis of extraneous noise from a pump D 2500-62-3 (N = 500 kW, n = 750 rpm) from the side of bearing No. 4. We identify the defect and determine the root cause of its formation.

More recently, an interesting case has occurred during maintenance of the electric motor of the pumping unit. Anyway for me. But it is interesting for the experiment and the consequences that will certainly replenish the piggy bank of my technical experience, and therefore yours. But first things first.

Friction is all around us. Without it we would find it very difficult to run, walk, or even stand on our own two feet. We need friction to drive our cars and fly our aeroplanes; and we need friction for our motors to drive pumps. But when it comes to our plant machinery, friction is both friend and foe.

In this article I want to talk about the difficulties encountered during vibration adjustment, the interweaving of many different defects at the rotational speed, the search for solutions to the problem, and the possibilities of the vibration adjustment specialist are not unlimited. A story without a happy ending, as always from our own real practice.

Defects of electric motors of electromagnetic origin occupy a special niche in technical diagnostics, their identification is complicated, separate books are devoted to them. In this article I will share a recent case from my practice.

Another interesting example from practice. Two centrifugal fans of 3000 rpm are installed side by side, conventional air filters are at the inlets, the pressure pipe is common, the pressure pipes are rigidly connected to the cochlear flange. One is always at work, the second is in reserve. Switching once a month.
