Field Testing & Troubleshooting
MSI specializes in field testing and vibration troubleshooting of critical service rotating machinery for all industries including energy, oil & gas, water & wastewater, transportation, and others. Typical equipment includes pumps, compressors, turbines, fans, bearings, gearboxes, motors, generators, and more. A vibration troubleshooting effort may include experimental modal analysis (EMA) to determine system natural frequencies, operating deflection shape (ODS) characterization to observe system behavior under operational loading, and continuous monitoring during transient events. By evaluating the entire system, including foundation, support structures, piping, etc., and employing supplementary tools such as finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), MSI is able to solve the most challenging problems when others have failed.
