Vibration Sensor from ADIY – Our Product range is Vibration sensors.
What is a Vibration sensor?
A vibration sensor is a device that measures the amount and frequency of vibration in a given system, machine, or piece of equipment. Vibration sensors can be used to give maintenance teams insight into conditions within key assets that might lead to equipment failure, allowing them to predict the maintenance of the machinery, to reduce overall costs and increase the performance of the machinery.
Modern-day vibration sensors are electronic devices, using either piezoelectric or piezoresistive technology. Most models used in plant monitoring applications are the piezoelectric types.
Which industries use the vibration sensor the most?
Below is a list of the most common industrial sectors that employ vibration sensors to monitor the vibrations:
- Automotive & Transportation
- Pulp and Paper
- Food and Beverage
- Oil and Gas, Refining, Petrochemicals
- Power Generation (fossil fuel, nuclear, hydro, wind turbines)
- Machine tools
- Mining, Mineral Processing, and Cement
The most common industrial applications of vibration sensors include rotating equipment such as pumps, motors, fans, compressors, gearboxes, gas turbines, bearings on conveyor systems, wind turbine gearboxes, wind turbine generators, dryer sections (pulp & paper), ovens & kilns (mineral processing), and hot rolling mills (metalworking).
More and more industries are becoming aware of the importance of vibration condition monitoring of their process or production plant.
In recent years, the global automotive industry has witnessed strong growth and profitability. The increased demand for automobiles has also encouraged automobile manufacturers to monitor the health of their plant machinery effectively to keep the production line in operating condition. Moreover, condition monitoring has become crucial for maintaining the quality of products and the stability of manufacturing processes. With the help of vibration monitoring equipment and vibration sensors, automobile manufacturing plant managers can ensure the proper functioning of automated machines, metalworking equipment, and robotics, thus ensuring the smooth flow of different production processes.
How to use or work with a vibration sensor
Before taking a vibration measurement, you need to attach a sensor that can detect vibration behavior to the machine that is being measured. A vibration sensor either connects directly to an asset or monitors it wirelessly. Once placed, it will detect vibrations from the asset through various means, depending on the type of sensor.
When determining the correct vibration sensor for your application it is important to consider:
- The range and accuracy
- Environment conditions
- The shape of the measuring surface
So that the sensor will perform the best in your application.
