Vibration and Operational Deflection Shape Analysis
Whether it is a high frequency rattle resulting in increased mechanical wear, or a broadband and damaging impulsive event, Xi can help minimise and mitigate these effects on the rotating machinery which is so key to the energy industry.
Everything has resonant frequencies and all moving equipment and machinery vibrates. The Xi team have experience in an extensive range of sectors, measuring, diagnosing, and solving our clients’ vibration concerns. Xi provide a complete solution, going further than just providing results by quantifying and explaining the vibration then suggesting and designing mitigation solutions.
Where necessary Xi can apply advanced measurement methods including techniques such as Operational Deflection Shape (ODS) analysis which allows acceleration or velocity data to be visualised showing the response of the machinery both in respect to time and vibration. This can be used to improve the operational efficiencies and extend the lifetime of your rotating machines.
