Services Overview, Field Testing & Diagnostics
Shaker and Impact Testing
EDI maintains a range of sizes of custom built rotating shakers, including a large shaker capable of producing thousands of pounds of dynamic force.
Structural Component Failures
Most structural failures are due to fatigue (cyclic stress) rather than static loading. A combination of several analysis methods aid in defining the "root cause" of a structural failure. A combination of several analysis methods will aid in defining the “root cause” of a structural failure.
ODS (Operating Deflection Shapes)
ODS testing is an extremely useful tool for determining the vibration “shape” of machines and structures. Vibration data is obtained at various points on the structures and the data are animated using the amplitude and phase relationships and the corresponding test points of a 3-D model.
EDI has established a test group to provide routine engine/compressor maintenance and performance analysis services. A predictive maintenance program can significantly improve reliability and reduce maintenance costs of reciprocating machinery.
