What if You Could Actually SEE Vibration?
Mechanical Solutions, Inc. is well-known for their ability to accurately diagnose difficult rotating machinery problems, AND to provide an engineered, implementable solution. They also have 22 years in solving problems using high-speed video. Recently, those two threads came together to bring the VibVue™ system to market through MSI’s Envision Motion division.
What is VibVue™?
This exciting new technology uses high-speed video to analyze vibration on a pixel-by-pixel basis, and then to visualize that vibration for the entire machine through significant amplification (up to 1000 times!) at distinct frequencies. The VibVue™ Pro system facilitates full-machine analysis and visualization at frequencies over 600Hz, enabling diagnoses involving many multiples of running speed, such as vane and blade pass. The resultant high-definition videos provide a comprehensive, realistic, data-enhanced view of the machine or piping system’s motion for problem identification and solution determination.
For example, this video of a pipeline station vent is amplifying vibration at 418 Hz. VibVue™ lets you find the needle in the haystack. To learn more, head to the Envision Motion website.
