Vibration Analysis & Balancing
Turbine Diagnostic Service specializes in vibration analysis of turbine generator equipment. Our efforts specialize in multi-
Determining the cause of the vibration is vitally important in turbine generator equipment due to the costs of down time. Balancing efforts are only prescribed based on substantiating evidence that balance of the rotating equipment will have a positive improvement of the vibration conditions on the machines.
TDS utilizes state of the art, current Bently Nevada technology, for real time vibration data collection and analysis. TDS currently has 24 channels of real time vibration analysis equipment and capable of monitoring the largest steam turbine generator equipment in service in the world. TDS uses the Bently Nevada “Adre for Windows” software for vibration data presentation.
TDS is set up to monitor remote work sites over internet or modem connections for remote control of the onsite vibration equipment with laplink to the home office in Tampa.
While TDS uses the Bently Nevada vibration analysis equipment, it is our extensive experience in the field vibration analysis and balancing of an extremely wide range of turbine generator equipment that makes Turbine Diagnostic Services the most technically competent field balancing organization in the world.
TDS is proficient at the diagnostic techniques required to determine the vibration causes in steam and gas turbines and generators. TDS is intimate with internal construction of steam and gas turbines and generators, and the causes of problems and resulting vibration characteristic. TDS is fully aware of the normal expansion characteristics of steam and gas turbines and generator and aware of the binding points and misalignment that causes certain vibration patterns in turbine generator equipment. TDS can monitor the multi-
