Let’s continue our route-based maintenance video series with a look at diagnostics to detect misalignment issues on rotating machinery. In this 5:53 YouTube video, Misalignment Detection: Cross Channel Phase and Fault Frequencies, Emerson’s Drew Mackley demonstrates the analysis provided to data collected by portable vibration analyzers in route-based maintenance applications. He emphasizes the CSI 2140 […]

Many plants perform route-based, machinery condition monitoring with portable vibration analyzers. The most common vibration sensor used is a single-axis accelerometer mounted to a 2-pole magnet, which can easily attach to a variety of surfaces including curved ones. Vibration data collected from these sensors provide meaningful results for the detection and trending of many mechanical […]
