Vibration analysis is a key component of a condition monitoring program and is most commonly used to detect faults in rotating machinery (fans, motors, pumps and gearboxes etc.) such as unbalance, misalignment, rolling element bearing faults and resonance conditions.

Used as part of an overall asset management programme, vibration analysis detects early problems in rotating machinery such as gearboxes, traction motors, axle boxes, diesel engines, fans, compressors, pumps, mixers, and bow thrusters.

Our engineers have over 30 years experience and are Safe Contractor accredited. Our vibration analysis services can be used as part of a condition monitoring programme or as a one off troubleshooting report.


  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Detect equipment faults early
  • Avoid equipment downtime
  • Increase plant up-time/profits
  • Improve maintenance scheduling
