Vibration Analysis & Bearing Monitoring

SPM Instrument AB – Sweden

SPM Instrument for Vibration Analysis & Bearing Monitoring Equipment

As accredited distributors for SPM Instrument, Machinery Vibration Specialists carry a complete range of Vibration / Bearing Monitoring equipment. With over 30 years experience in the machinery vibration / bearing monitoring industry we have become recognised as experts in our field and are continuously providing cost efficient solutions for large and small scale clients. Vibration / Bearing Monitoring is an integral part of Predictive Maintenance through the process of detecting a change in machine condition BEFORE it becomes a major problem. Not only does Vibration / Bearing Monitoring save hours and production losses due to unnecessary downtime.

SPM Instrument are also experts in the measurement of general vibration characteristics of machinery and offer an extensive range of portable instruments and fixed monitors for both vibration and Shock Pulse. measurement and assessment.

Machinery Vibration Specialists have been distributors for SPM Instrument for over 20 years during this time we have offered sales and service of the full range of their products and support including customer training, instrument calibration and repair. 

The SPM Range of Equipment Includes:

SPM Shock Pulse Measuring Techniques

For over 47 years SPM Instrument AB of Sweden have led the way in developing unique techniques, design and manufacture of products for measurement, analysis and very early warning of ball or roller bearing condition.

SPM Instrument have been world leaders for over 47 years in the early detection of ball and roller bearing assessment. They developed the Shock Pulse Method which measured the ultrasonic signal generated by the microscopic defects that occur at the very early stages of bearing failure. They have patented techniques and algorithms for measuring the Shock Pulse resulting in an measure of the mechanical condition, HDm, and the lubrication film thickness, HDc. These values can be trended to the pre-set alarm levels and will give a very early indication of bearing condition enabling corrective action to be scheduled with long lead times.

When we say slow speed we mean down to as low as one (1) rpm.

Portable Instruments for Detection

Simple low cost instruments are available for first level detection of either Bearing Shock Pulse or Vibration Velocity to ISO 10816 standards. They are also available with EX certification.

Measuring physical parameters such as vibration and shock pulse for detection and trending values over time, early warning of machine problems can easily be ascertained. Once the level has been reached detailed vibration analysis using the frequency of the vibration signal can quickly determine the source of the problem. The next step is of the problem that may require dynamic balancing , laser shaft alignment or just bearing lubrication. The final step in a good Predictive Maintenance Plan is the root cause analysis to minimise the re-occurrence of the problem.

Machinery Vibration / Bearing Analysis

SPM announces the New Leonova DIAMOND (Leonova Diamond) which is a 3x channel simultaneous Vibration / Bearing Analyser.

The New Leonova EMERALD (Leonova Emerald) is a sister instrument to the Diamond but has only 2x input channels, similar features but at lower cost. Using the new SPM HD condition monitoring technology enabling measurements of very slow bearings and machinery resulting in information not previously available.

The high performance vibration analysis provides razor sharp spectrums even of very weak signal with low energy content. Using the 120dB signal-to-noise ratio and the 24bit processor results in very accurate and sensitive spectra. Using advanced order tracking algorithms gives very precise spectral information and avoids “spectral smearing”.

The new DIAMOND has additional measurement features of Dynamic Balancing, Laser Shaft Alignment, Motor Current Analysis, Stroboscope Interface and Voice Recording features. Both instruments are also available with “Ex” Intrinsically Safe Certification.

Protection and On-Line Monitoring

SPM have a range of protection monitors suitable for all types of rotating machinery. Their Model MG4 range are fully programmable with both relay and PLC outputs, analogue 4-20mA or digital Modbus. Intellinova Online Monitoring Systems enable parameter trending and analysis. These are ideal for very low speed bearings. Intellinova Online Units are multi-channel, multi-parameter systems, connected via the plant Ethernet for plant wide trending, analysis and reporting. The new low cost Intellinova Compact units are ideal for small critical protection and monitoring, especially for low speed machinery such as conveyor drives, wind turbines, mills and wet presses.

Condition Monitoring Software

Condmaster Ruby is the latest update from SPM. This software supports Leonova Diamond & Emerald as well as communicating with all
SPM On-Line Ethernet Monitoring Systems and handheld SPM data logging instruments.

Root Cause Analysis with SPM CondMaster Ruby

Using the SPM Condition based software which includes modules such as Rule Based Evaluation RBE and Plant Performer enables plant machinery optimisation.

SPM Transducers Parts & Accessories

To support the range of instruments and monitors SPM have a full range of shock pulse and vibration transducers together with bearing adapters cables and machine fittings.

Shock Pulse Transducers
Used predominantly for Bearing Monitoring, Shock Pulse Transducers are used in all permanent SPM monitoring installations. Shock pulse transducers are mounted on the bearing housing via countersunk holes and work by converting shock pulses into electric signals. Vibration Transducers Solid Vibration Transducers are individually tuned piezo-electric accelerometers capable of withstanding extreme industrial environments whilst transmitting data on the vibration status of the machinery they are monitoring. The correct solution and equipment is only a phone call or email away so don’t hesitate. Contact Machinery Vibration Specialists today and get professional advice and first class service.

The NEW SPM DuoTech  Multi-Purpose Accelerometer for both Vibration and Shock Pulse measurements enables SPM HD bearing analysis and vibration HD Enveloping all from the one transducer. This powerful transducer minimises the cost of installation and cabling without compromising the available data to give maximum machine protection.
