RBTS specialists offer the following consulting services based on experience and know-how developed for over 50 years: 

Analytical Vibration of Machinery & Support Structure

  • Rotating Machinery Dynamics (Lateral, Torsional, Axial)
  • Fluid-Film Bearings (Hydrodynamic, Hydrostatic & Hybrid)
  • Rolling Element Bearings
  • Seals (Mechanical Face Seals)
  • Finite Element Stress and Dynamic Analyses
  • Failure Analysis & Troubleshooting
  • Retrofit and Design Audits
  • Interface with OEM and Witness Testing of Machinery

Vibration Measurements 

  • All Types of Vibration Measurements and Analysis for Excessive Vibrations, Mechanical Failures, Structural Failures, Torsional and Horsepower Issues
  • Periodic and Online Condition Monitoring Programs
  • Reliability and Production Limitations
  • Equipment Design and Performance Deficiencies
  • Ultrasonic Measurements
  • Infrared Monitoring
  • Oil Analysis

Advanced Diagnostic Services 

  • Torsional Vibration - Experimental and analytical torsional modeling services for single and multi-branch systems. Telemetry technology with high speed data collection to accurately measure and analyze torque and torsional stresses in drive train systems.
  • Structural Dynamics & Modal Testing - Detailed structural dynamic analysis combining Modal-Finite Element-Stress-Fatigue analysis is performed to assess potential failures resulting from stress cycles of vibration. Modal deflected shapes are captured experimentally and natural frequencies are determined to assess failure modes and recommend modifications to resolve problems.
  • Reciprocating Equipment - Comprehensive vibration surveys are performed on reciprocating engine and compressor assemblies. Tri-axis data are acquired on all measurement points, scanned and compared to identify components exhibiting high vibrations and exceeding guideline limits. Advanced diagnostic techniques, Torsional and Modal Analysis, Operating and Real Time Base Deflection shapes are often used for in-depth analysis of machinery problems.
