Vibration isolation can be used to solve two types of problems: To avoid resonance of the machine itself. To limit vibrations from being transmitted to other components (pipes, machines etc.) connected to the same foundation as the machine. Isolators can in many cases also be used to loosen up existing pipe supports in order to … Read moreVibration isolator calculator
Background Having control over vibration might seem like a daunting task. On one side there are many sources to vibration, ie. pulsation, flow, external forces, machinery. On the other hand, there are many mechanical structures that can be put into motion, ie. internal components, pipes, main structure, valves. When you know that Vibration = Force * … Read morePipe vibration assessment
Background A simple support will increase the mechanical stiffness of the pipelines and make it more robust against vibration. This tool is intended to be used as an aid for operational personnel at a process facility for doing a rough estimate of recommended maximum distances between supports. The calculator is not meant to be a … Read moreSupport calculator: Calculation of maximum recommended pipe length between supports

To get in control, is mostly about understanding. If you understand the cause and mechanisms behind, you are often able to identify both possibilities and risks. In Momentum Technologies we are committed to vibration control. Our ambition is to always understand the problem – finding the root cause, assess the severity and – if needed … Read morePresenting: Vibration toolbox by Momentum Technologies
EFRC (the European Forum for Reciprocating Compressors) has within their guidelines, defined criterias for vibration assessment of reciprocating compressors. Measurements of vibrations at the main parts of the compressor individually may only give a rough indication of the stress levels. In order to enable a more holistic and reliable vibration assessment of the compressor, you … Read moreEFRC Vibration criteria
Vibrations may be triggered from a variety of sources. When vibrations coincidently match the eigenfrequencies of a structure, resonance occure which can end up in catastrophic result. Understanding and controlling this amplification factor is the key to a safe and healthy process plant. A simple clamp on damper can do the job of reducing over 90% … Read moreVibration problems?
