Vibration monitoring

We believe in adopting a proactive approach to the lifecycle of compressors and other critical equipment installed and maintained by ACE.

Vibration monitoring plays a key role in our predictive maintenance programmes. Using vibration analysis instruments, we monitor set condition parameters in equipment to identify any significant changes which can be indicative of a developing fault.

Vibration levels can be compared with historical baseline values such as former start ups and shutdowns, and in some cases established standards such as load changes, to assess the severity of any issues arising.

Accurate measurement of absolute and relative vibration on critical equipment to identify developing faults before they become a major problem enables us to schedule preventative maintenance works and dramatically reduce any risk of catastrophic failure and expensive process shutdown.
