Do you use accurate alarm values for your vibration analysis program or other CM technologies? Setting accurate alarm values will help you identify equipment defects occurring in your equipment. However, the benefits go beyond this. Missing alarms or inaccurate alarms may force your analyst to review every machine each time data is collected. This wastes a lot of time reviewing data that could be used more productively for other reliability efforts. Setting accurate vibration alarms means that data for each machine does not have to be reviewed each time it is collected. The vibration analysis software, vibration data collector or other CM technology can alert your analyst of those machines that actually need review. This will increase the analysis accuracy and save you time and money.
