Vibration – What is it? How does it Affect My Operation? What can i do about it?
Abstract:This paper describes how pump vibration can create problems in conveyance systems. Potential sources of vibration are reviewed as well as factors that affect pump vibration. Examples are presented that demonstrate pump vibration problems: (1) when a wet well level was lowered to obtain system storage capacity, (2) in a new installation, and (3) when one pump in an installation functioned properly and the adjacent pump had a high vibration amplitude. The successful use of vibration testing as a condition of routine startup and acceptance is described.
