95 Page Technical Paper on Required Vibration Analysis Techniques
& Instrumentation on Low-Speed Machines (particularly 20-300
Number LSM-1 (95 page booklet) - $79
comprehensive paper is based on many years of research and field
experience on this unique class of machines.
paper extensively covers the special techniques which must be
employed on machines that may operate at speeds of only 20 to
100 RPM (plus shows how numerous problems can be detected even
those operating below 20 RPM).
the paper discusses in detail the requirements of both instruments
and transducers which must be employed if successful analysis
of low-speed machines is to be performed.
openly discusses what difficulties will be encountered and makes
strong recommendations on what type of transducers and instruments
will have to be used.
also discusses the optimum vibration parameter which should
be used to analyze low-speed machines when using both spectral
analysis and time waveform analysis.
then covers how one should successfully evaluate rolling element
bearings on low-speed machines.
the paper discusses how one should specify both overall and
spectral band alarms for such low-speed machines (it reveals
how and why such alarm levels will be significantly lower than
those on nominal speed machines operating at speeds of 600 to
paper closes with a number of real-world case histories which
have been performed on low-speed machines, including both problem
detection and correction.
