So many machines. So little time. What’s the best approach?
Vibration analysts are often faced with scores—perhaps hundreds—of machines, many of which exhibit vibration frequencies that are very hard (if not impossible) to identify. Some machines can absorb countless hours of an analyst’s time before he/she can confidently identify all the discernible peaks in their FFT signatures. The danger is that an analyst could waste precious analyzing time trying to identify the source of a vibration that will never cause a problem, and possibly miss the rise of another, more lethal vibration. What does an efficient analyst do?
