PCH Engineering offer portable vibration meters to help you check and protect your rotating machinery anytime, anywhere.
If you are a machine owner or manufacturer, you know that a machine breakdown is a costly and frustrating situation.
Machine damage; costly repairs; unscheduled production stops eating away at your profits.
All of these are things that most machine owners would like to avoid. And often, they are caused by something as simple as a damaged roller bearing that was not attended to in due time.
Now here comes the good part:
avoid this. And we have just the tool for that: portable vibration meters.
The vibration meter can help you detect a fault in a roller bearing long before it causes unbalance in the machine. Here is how.
Roller bearing resonances can be detected in the 1 kHz to 10 kHz frequency range. In order to detect early roller bearing defects (and prevent costly machine damage and production stops), you can measure the overall acceleration value in this range with the vibration meter.
