Turbine Vibration Specialist
A Turbine vibration specialist specializes in complex turbine vibration data acquisition, analysis, recommendations, and balancing.
Turbine generators require specialized vibration services as they are both complex and unique multi-bearing turbomachinery, with:
- Most large turbine generators have supercritical rotors, requiring a keen understanding of rotor dynamics, supercritical modal analysis, and compromise balancing for slow, at-speed, and critical speeds within operational range.
- Thermal growth effects on vibration phase, angle, and amplitude during modes of operation
- Multiple types of bearings can be used on a single machine, including: Tilting pad, elliptical, shortened elliptical, cylindrical, tapered land, Kingsbury, roller, etc
- Our Turbine vibration experts are also well versed in the particularly tough cases of turbine vibration, including Synchronizing condenser applications and SSS clutch vibration and alignment.
