VIBE.Fx OFFERS vibration analysis services for predictive maintenance.

Vibration Analysis overview

Unwanted vibration can cause a variety of issues to your equipment including balancing issues, equipment failures, pump cavitation, alignment, and bearing or gear wear.

Vibration analysis is used to determine these developing problems to prevent equipment downtime and possible failure.


  • Unbalance
  • Bearing failures
  • Mechanical looseness
  • Misalignment
  • Resonance and natural frequencies
  • Electrical motor faults
  • Bent shafts
  • Gearbox failures
  • Cavitation
  • Critical speeds

About Vibration Analysis

When done properly vibration analysis allows for preventative maintenance of rotating equipment during normal maintenance shutdowns. Vibration Analysis involves the interpretation of vibrational frequencies in rotating equipment.

Vibration Analysis and Motion amplification

We pioneered utilizing RDI Technologies’ motion amplification  software in western Canada – this technology allows us to quickly and easily see and measure your equipment’s deflection, displacement, movement, and vibration. This visualization technology aids in vibration analysis, allowing us to see what we physically cannot see with our eyes. Using motion amplification, we can create an actual video – not just a model – of your equipment to see the subtleties in its bends, twists, and shakes and diagnose the problem quickly and accurately.

Typical Vibration analysis in-plant scenario

Plant Services   provides an example of a pump and motor unit with high vertical frequencies at one end and high axial(horizontal) readings at the other. Causes of these vibrations can be from alignment, or even a poor bond on the sole plate allowing the motor to lift. These issues can lead to many hours of downtime or permanent equipment damage.

Vibration analysis capability

Due to the highly technical nature of vibration analysis the majority of companies trust vibration analysis specialists like Vibe FX to perform this task. Examining the cost of downtime, savings in the form of productivity or even trying to build up the expertise in house more than justify the need for vibration analysis experts like Vibe FX.
