Example text

To help understand the results of the survey, the velocities and frequencies were coded, with a black square indicating the highest-velocity reading, along with the frequency it represented. The oil injection line into the rotary screw compressor had the highest vibration level. 6, it was actually a header to which several other oil lines were connected. The analysis disclosed that the vibration was caused by the oil injected being forced back into the injection line by the rotor lobes. This caused a 240-cps frequency, which was the lobe passing frequency.

When this isn’t possible, the offending frequencies are altered by changing springs and masses. When this also isn’t practical, a tuned vibration absorber [2, p. 183] may be the solution. 10 shows a vibration absorber system. ), two masses, W1 and W2 (lb), and a cycling force, ±F0 (lb), are applied to W1 . ) on each respective mass. This is of practical importance since it is used in one form or another to reduce vibrations on engine crankshafts and structures in industry. It can also be used to explain local resonance vibration.

10. 10a is widely used on turbomachinery to measure the actual shaft displacement at any position. Velocity and acceleration are also available through electronic differentiation, a method not widely utilized, as the real benefit comes from orbit diagrams. Knowing the movement of the shaft is very useful and can be done at both low and high speeds. Since it measures the shaft directly, care is needed in the calibration of the probes and condition of the shaft, as magnetized shafts can result in erroneous readings.
