Field and Lab Testing for Performance and Troubleshooting

Field testing and vibration troubleshooting is essential to finding the problem root cause in all industries using rotating machinery.  Field performance testing is recommended prior to existing equipment replacement, repair, or modifications to characterize current performance. Post-installation performance and vibration testing services in new or retrofitted plants provide measurements for comparison with contract acceptance criteria.

Lab testing includes building fully instrumented test rigs for conducting machine performance testing and accelerated life testing. For example, our capabilities are routinely applied to blowers & fans (for certified aerodynamic performance ratings), pumps, compressors, bearings and seals.
