We provide pre-modification performance testing services for older systems prior to replacement, repair, or modifications to characterize current performance. Test results form the basis for recommending repair, retrofit, or replacement, and help set expectations for post-modification performance levels.
We also perform pre-modification mechanical testing services to document the current rotating machinery system’s vibration levels and natural frequencies prior to upgrading or replacing. Test results are used for dynamic modeling of new or upgraded systems.
Finally, we perform post-installation performance and vibration testing services in new or retrofitted plants, providing 3rd party independent measurements for comparison with contract acceptance criteria.
An engineering construction firm needed help in determining the root cause for the repetitive pump bearing and seal failures of a solids handling pump and to provide a solution to eliminate the issue.
A design assessment was carried out in an effort to prevent potential premature bladed disk and impeller fatigue failures of three newly installed critical compressor trains.
