Vibration measurements and calibration

Posted by beamexcalibration on Jan 18, 2016 11:00:13 AM

Seismic velocity measurements provide ideal resolution at typical rotating equipment running speeds. Vibration is always transmitted through the bearings used on rotating equipment. It has been proven time and time again that measuring vibration on rotating equipment is the most universally effective predictive maintenance practice for critical pumps, motors, compressors, fans, cooling towers and rollers.

For example, over time, industrial motor bearings wear out and begin to wobble. Eventually these bearings will need to be replaced, or the machine will fail. But how do you measure the bearing performance to be sure you aren’t changing them out too soon, or in an even worse case, waiting until the machine breaks down and it’s too late? There is a whole world of 4-20 mA loop vibration sensors, like the Seismic Velocity 4-20 mA transmitter from Metrix or IMI Sensors, and they are gaining in popularity.

How to calibrate a pressure switch

Posted by beamexcalibration on Nov 30, 2015 12:14:35 PM

We often get asked questions regarding the calibration of a pressure switch.
Since we didn’t have any videos on the topic on our YouTube channel, our dynamic duo from our US office, Roy and Ned, decided to make one.
