CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyservideo deflection technology MORE INFO CONTACT Visualisation using video technology is a powerful tool to demonstrate evidence of issues directly impacting the life expectancy of key critical components within an asset’s make up

NON INVASIVE

Video Deflection Technology is a non-invasive VA technique

ADDED VALUE

Used in conjunction with our traditional VA monitoring service

TIME SAVING

Ideal tool for various types of vibration analysis

Video Deflection Technology

Our analysts use video deflection technology, a type of vibration analysis software called Dragon Vision, on ordinary video recordings to track microscopic movements of specific pixel points and convert the results into vibration signals. The software can detect thousands of vibration points in a single video.

This technique is used in conjunction with our traditional Vibration Analysis techniques as a value-added service. For more information on this service, contact us on +44(0)1709 876 712 or email info@pcmseng.co.uk

Visualise

Our reliability engineers capture video recordings of assets while out in the field

Measure

Our team of analysts process the video to identify microscopic movements of specific pixel points

Analyse

Animations, images & recommendations are uploaded to our cloud-based reporting platform

What kind of failures can be detected?

There are many failures that can be detected and confirmed with this technique. Mainly those related to low frequencies understanding the interaction of the amplitude and phase relationships. For example:

  • Imbalance and Misalignment
  • Structural/Mechanical Looseness
  • Bent Shaft
  • Eccentricity
  • Resonance

Video Deflection Technology

When would we use Video Deflection Technology?

We use Video Deflection Technology in conjunction with our traditional vibration monitoring techniques as a value-added service.

Visualisation using video technology is a powerful tool to demonstrate evidence of issues directly impacting the life expectancy of key critical components within an asset’s make up.

The technology is an ideal accompaniment to standard vibration analysis techniques and can also bolster animations created using Operational Deflection Shape (ODS).

Video Deflection Technology

Our Service

1

Step One

Where further confirmation and visualisation is required, our reliability engineers capture video recordings of assets while out in the field collecting data noting operational conditions and any potential external influences.

2

Step Two

The video is sent to our dedicated analysis centre, where our team of analysts process the video to identify micro-movements, essentially creating thousands of vibration analysis measurement points.

3

Step Three

Animations and images from all investigative techniques are uploaded to our cloud-based platform, OMEGA, where all recommendations are visible with the ability for clients to interact with the data to allow feedback of all action taken.
