When is Vibration in Piping or Rotating Machinery Acceptable?

Discover Practical Solutions to Complex Vibration Problems

Vibration in industrial equipment and facilities may lead to equipment degradation, failure, loss of production, or safety issues. Often it’s difficult to determine whether the vibration is acceptable or if it requires immediate attention. You need practical advice on whether to run, repair, or replace your in-service equipment.

Contact our E2G REVD Experts

At E2G, we approach vibration problems differently. We believe not all equipment needs to be fixed.

Our structural vibration and rotating equipment engineers use state-of-the-art technology to provide practical and actionable recommendations to extend the life of in-service piping, structures, and rotating equipment. We use a fitness-for-service (FFS) approach to identify the highest-risk systems to manage risk, minimize failures, and save money.

Rotating Equipment, Vibration, & Dynamics Consulting Service Areas

Apply RBI principles to piping and other rotating equipment to assess fatigue failures and prioritize remediation for in-service installations.

On-site piping and structural vibration surveys and testing to evaluate the equipment, assess the risk of vibration, and provide recommendations to mitigate vibration fatigue failures. 

Utilize advanced FFS techniques to design temporary or permanent solutions, reduce fatigue risk, and extend equipment life.

Unnoticed acoustic vibration can be catastrophic – complete a pulsation analysis to design or retrofit machinery and proactively extend the equipment’s lifecycle.

Gain valuable insight into the source and location of flow-induced turbulence (FIT) and maximize flow rates while avoiding flow-induced vibrations.

Machinery risk management audits to help prevent loss of containment, equipment failures, and a potential process safety event.
