Introduction to Vibration in Rotodynamic Pumps

1-Part On-Demand Webinar


This webinar presents an introduction to vibration analysis of rotodynamic pumps and will provide basic concepts of vibration analysis and provide some guidelines to help the diagnostic process of dynamic behavior on rotodynamic pumps and their systems. The focus is on centrifugal pumps of all types regarding their typical vibration issues such as imbalance, misalignment, rubs, looseness, etc.  Troubleshooting methods and fixes are discussed with real life case histories.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, learners should be able to understand:

  • Fundamentals of vibration theory
  • Types of vibration
  • Vibration data management and display/plots (FFT – amplitude vs. frequency)
  • Vibration measurement and instrumentation
  • Most common vibration issues: imbalance and misalignment
