Vibration Trending & Analysis

Vibration analysis and trending is a method of evaluating current machine condition and monitoring a machine’s changes over a period of time. It can also be used to pinpoint a source of several problems such as misalignment, imbalance and bearing issues. Vibration trending and analysis can be performed on all rotating equipment.

Benefits of Vibration Trending and Analysis

  • Diagnose imbalance and misalignment
  • Discover bearing issues
  • Applicable on any rotating equipment
  • Improve equipment reliability and uptime
  • Prevent catastrophic failure
  • Improve machine safety levels

Applications for Vibration Trending and Analysis

  • Motors
  • Pumps
  • Air handlers
  • Fans
  • Gearboxes
  • Driven machines

Infrared Thermography

Infrared thermography can provide significant warning of potential problems with critical equipment before catastrophic failure. With infrared thermography you can identify overheating electrical connections and other machine components, scheduling repairs to be made during planned downtime.


Benefits of Infrared Thermography

  • Reduce unscheduled downtime
  • Detect problems quickly
  • Assess priorities for corrective action
  • Reduce catastrophic failure of equipment

Applications for Infrared Thermography

  • Power distribution and control cabinets
  • Building envelopes & structures
  • Electric motor conduit box & frame temperature
  • Mechanical bearing inspections
  • Electrical systems
  • Process problems due to heat loss

Dynamic Balancing & Laser Alignment

Nearly anything that rotates, or is supported in bearings that allow it to rotate, needs balancing to insure quality performance. Schulz Electric utilizes CSI & various Schenck models of balancing equipment and have the capability to balance up to 60,000 lbs. in house. All precision equipment must be aligned in order to function accurately. Schulz technicians can provide print outs and live visual displays detailing specifications and tolerances for alignment. Laser alignment can be done on any size equipment from 5 HP and up on both horizontal and vertical motors. We also have the capability for aligning pulleys and belts.

Benefits of Dynamic Balancing & Laser Alignment

  • Increased operating time
  • Increased productivity
  • Decreased downtime
  • Applicable for vertical and horizontal motors
