Multi-Axis Machine Platforms
Since 2005 MPAC Ltd. have been carrying out predictive maintenance and condition monitoring services for customers in all industries across the county, we have developed a strong understanding of the various technologies used in industrial and commercial predictive maintenance and have invested in state of the art equipment to allow us to carry out inspections on electrical and mechanical systems for our customers.
MPAC Ltd. can offer vibration analysis services to customers for condition monitoring on mechanical rotating systems including
- Electric motors
- Vacuum Pumps
- Fans and blowers
And many more standard and non-standard rotating machine types.
Our system is based on the Mitsubishi / FAG SCM kit which we also sell and integrate for customers. Our offering as a vibration analysis service differentiates itself from other vibration analysis surveys where a “spot check is carried out” and the short sample gathered is analysed.
Our survey involves fitting an SCM kit to your machine and teaching the system to the conditions present, we then leave the system in place for a period of time and the SCM kit will display any anomalies via the built in touchscreen. Once the data gathering period is complete we remove the system and download the complete dataset for offsite analysis.
This method allows us to build a bigger picture of the machine over a period of time and can give a lot of information not only about the bearings but also other things such as Misalignment, Imbalance, Gearmesh problems, Resonance problems and poor foundations beneath the machine leading to increased vibration.
Because this condition method is more time consuming than traditional spot check type surveys it can be cost prohibitive to apply this to every machine in the facility however if applied to the key items of plant it can give much better results and much more accurate analysis than just spot checking. This deeper analysis allows the root cause of failures to be identified for important or expensive machines.
1Because we offer a spectrum of condition monitoring services we can combine vibration analysis, electrical systems analysis, thermal imaging and oil analysis to discover the root cause of failures and keep your equipment working correctly.
