This was to be the final of the five case studies brought to you with the Reliability Training Institute. But, following on from feedback we will have one more case study next week, this will be an extra long project case study!
In this case study we demonstrate vibration analysis of a slow rotational 4 Point Contact Bearing, with a 23RPM Defect. This is to remind us that correct database set up, and Time Waveform Analysis is so important in slow rotational bearings.
In this case study we show that by measuring the correct vibration parameters you can resolve defects in harsh applications, even an inner raceway defect on a vibrating screen. Hopefully, you are finding them of use and helpful.
Here is the third of the five case studies brought to you with the Reliability Training Institute. In this case study we show how vibration analysis detected a hidden failure in a variable frequency drive. Hopefully, you are finding them of use and helpful.
As promised and to follow up on my previous post on bearing failures here is the first of five technical detailed case studies presentation. This is my first voice over presentation so please excuse the English Farmer accent mixed in with some Australian twang.
Hello everyone, I have created short presentation to share some different bearing failures that were detected before function failure. This has been put together for meetings and toolbox talks to promote the benefits of what defects a condition monitoring program can detect. Every bearing here has a story of how it was detected and what actions were/were not put in place to protect the functionability of the system.
This is aimed to highlight (at a high level) to management and production what we can detect if a suitable system is set up correctly.
I am working on another case study presentation that follows up on these and some other cases. In this one it will have the technical testing data (thermal, electrical and vibration) and a full case study also showing the ‘The Cause’ ‘The Mechanism of Failure’ and ‘The Failure Mode’. This will be posted over 5 videos.
Please feel free to share and spread the knowledge
Increase your Plant Reliability
and Increase Profit with a Seasoned Analyst.
Do you have unplanned failures? –
How much is this costing the company per hour? – Do you have any repeat
failures that causes disruption to production? – Are you firefighting faults? –
Do you have any equipment that is vibrating heavily that you can’t reduce? –
How can you improve your current maintenance practices?
Many companies don’t have the
expertise of a Seasoned Analyst to help them increase Plant
Reliability via an effective Condition Monitoring Program. Attached is a PDF
that contains information that can assist you in this.
With over 30 years’ experience in
the fields of Vibration Analysis, Infrared Thermography, Condition Monitoring
and Maintenance Engineering I have put together a book that your Engineers and
Maintenance Team will find extremely useful. Having worked with many of the
Blue-Chip companies in the UK and Australia, I have collated my experiences to
help and support the Non-Seasoned Analyst.
My experience ranges from
Lubrication, Thermal Imaging, Vibration Analysis, Ultrasound, NDT, Maintenance
Planning, Maintenance Improvements, Project Management and Mechanical
Maintenance including on site Dynamic Balancing and Laser Alignment.
I can provide an integrated condition
monitoring support service that will manage and drive your maintenance tasks
through Health Based Maintenance. This will enable you to know the health of
your system, engineer out repeat defects and increase production uptime.
Please read the attached book flyer for more details of how we can help you and your team. If you require further information, please contact us
We have managed to secure discounted postage with the printing company direct, this update has the new reduced postage costs.
This technical reference book comprises of over 20 years’ experience in the fields of Vibration Analysis, Condition Monitoring and Reliability Engineering. It is written with the technical tradesperson in mind, interpreting Vibration principles into layman’s terms. It has taken 7 years to fine tune the book and I have been though three demo versions. This is the first published version.
All data is from real-life situations with over 20 case studies throughout the book. This is to be used as material to help support knowledge sharing, practical training and mentoring to enhance System Reliability though Vibration technology

CBM Conference 2019 UK
I presented at my first Conference, and it was the first CBM Conference in the UK. It was well worth attending as I got to discuss various challenges in the condition monitoring and reliability sector, and the most common discussion point was buying from senior management and how to continually highlight the benefits of a condition monitoring program.
In addition there were vendors there demonstrating the latest advancements in condition motioning technology from vibration online and walk around, thermal imaging safety, ultrasound new high sampling rates time waveform analysis to motor electrical condition monitoring.
