Vibration testing can be used for a number of applications including machinery, ground vibrations and also personal whole body vibrations.
Analysis of rotating machinery vibrations is a vital as part of any preventative maintenance schedule. It can provide a warning of impending problems, what the cause of the problem is, where the problem lies and the severity of the problem. Prevent costly breakdowns is the objective of regular vibration assessments. Some of the equipment available today does not require a vibration expert, tests can be completed by a Technician and then only call in the experts if a problem is identified.
Ground vibration measurement and analysis can be used to monitor vibrations caused by demolition work, traffic etc and their risks including those to buildings, people or other equipment. Alarms can be set to alert you if pre-set limits are breached.
Whole body vibration assessment units are available to measure the impact of vibration on a person. A typical application is the measurement of vibration in a truck/forklift seat (or similar) and assess the effects on a person who sits in this location. This may be necessary as part of your OH&S assessments.
