Vibration Monitoring

Reduce Energy Usage, Improve Asset Longevity, and More

Throughout your organization, you have a variety of assets that are subject to significant, sustained vibration as part of their daily operation. While these assets are critical to your productivity, that prolonged vibration can lead to reduced performance, faster asset and component deterioration, unexpected and costly downtime, and even safety issues. These assets are expensive, support critical processes, operate at high speeds (and in aggressive environments), have a shorter failure cycle, and are difficult to replace. Because of this, ongoing vibration monitoring is essential to a successful asset management program.

Examples of Ideal Asset Candidates for Monitoring

  • Electric motors
  • Gearboxes
  • Air compressors
  • Air handlers
  • Hydraulic pumps
  • Coolant pumps
  • Conveyor drives
  • Mixers
  • Mills
  • Cooling tower systems
  • Thermal oxidizers (RTO)
  • Turbines

Our Approach to Vibration Monitoring Programs

SEAM Group uses advanced tools and technology for the vibration monitoring component of our asset management services. We use an accelerometer (piezoelectric sensor) to measure the dynamic acceleration of a physical device as an output voltage. From there, data allows our team and yours to view changes in amplitude, frequency, and forces that are problematic and could damage the asset. As a result of implementing this program, your organization realizes a variety of benefits, including:

  • Identifying developing problems before functional failure
  • Avoiding equipment damage, collateral damage, and scrapped products
  • Improved employee safety and position with your insurance provider
  • Improved asset availability and overall uptime
  • Improved maintenance planning and reduced costs
  • Improved energy savings and PM work reduction

As a leading asset management and optimization firm, SEAM Group is ready to assist you in developing and implementing a world-class vibration monitoring program. Experts project a 15-40% reduction in failures and a 5–15% reduction in energy consumption thanks to predictive maintenance efforts such as vibration monitoring. If you’re ready to realize those benefits, our team is ready to work with you.
