Vibration analysis allows the maximum interval between repairs to be realized through monitoring the actual mechanical condition of a piece of rotating machinery. Equipment down time is not required for monitoring activities to occur. The monitoring, in turn, directly minimizes the number and cost of unscheduled machine outages created by component failures. * Vibration Analysis is predicated on two basic facts:

1. All common failure modes have distinct vibration frequency components that can be isolated and identified.
2. The amplitude of each distinct vibration component will remain constant unless there is a change in the operating dynamics of the machinery. Monitoring the vibration from machinery can provide a direct correlation between the mechanical condition and recorded vibration data of each machine. Vibration analysis can be used to identify specific degrading machine components or failure modes of machinery before serious damage occurs.
