Operating Deflection Shape (ODS) analysis is a highly detailed motion study to determine root cause(s) of complex vibration issues of a machine and as needed, its accompanying foundation, platform, piping, ductwork etc. Interviews with customer and preliminary testing and will determine the size and scope of the ODS model for optimum results.
An ODS scale model of the test subject is created in the ODS software. Hundreds of frequency, amplitude, and phase measurements are recorded to animate the model with true in-service data.
The model is animated at all applicable frequencies around a full 3D view for motion analysis and videos of important findings are recorded to accompany a full written report of findings and recommended solutions.
For some rotating assets, and the processes associated with them, periodic route-based data collection is insufficient to indicate asset health. Online condition monitoring provides the frequency and types of data necessary to stay on top of developing issues during normal operations and to respond quickly to sudden changes during transient conditions. Emerson’s AMS 6500 Machinery Health Monitor is a versatile, scalable system that can be deployed in a variety of configurations to deliver online condition monitoring exactly as needed for the application.
The AMS 6500 Prediction rack mounted multi-channel machinery health monitor and analyzer help troubleshoot your entire machine or group of machines. It offers optional transient analysis for turbo machinery startup, coast down, and production state monitoring. Monitor and record all channels continuously and simultaneously for hours, days, or weeks – unattended.
AMS Suite integration saves time and facilitates multi-technology integration. PeakVue™ technology can be added for early identification of bearing wear in paper machines, rolling mills, complex gearboxes, and rolling element bearing machines. The CSI 6500 Machinery Health Expert has all the capabilities of the CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyzer. Portable vibration analyzers are the cornerstone of a successful predictive maintenance program. However, some anomalies, like root-cause investigations and machine train evaluations, can surpass the capabilities of even the most sophisticated 4-channel portable data collector. For example, turbo machinery start-ups, coast downs and production state monitoring require multi-channel, simultaneous recording, vibration monitoring, and real-time feedback to capture rapidly changing events across an entire machine train. For balance of plant critical machines, multi-channel monitoring solution with journal bearing, rolling element bearing, and gearbox monitoring technology is necessary for root cause analysis and to determine if the machine will survive to the next outage.
