During both implementation and operation, prime contractors and industrial companies sometimes have to face acoustics and vibration related problems.
Metravib team of experts is visiting sites around the world to assess and diagnose these issues. Indeed it is essential to measure phenomena such as noise emission, static or dynamic structural behavior in real operating conditions in order to analyze any deviations or the causes of faults.
Such field services go hand in hand with:
Equipment acceptance tests according to requirements imposed by international standards
Troubleshooting and seeking the causes of faults
Performance improvement and optimization
Competitive or benchmarking studies
Methodology for troubleshooting studies in the Oil and Gas market
When engineers or technicians are confronted with unapprehended vibration or acoustical phenomenon, they tend to use familiar analysis tools or refer themselves to past experiences. Sadly, physics cannot be summarized in one tool and has many ways to express itself !
When it comes to provide the right support in critical situations, Metravib team of engineers and technicians is at your side, responsive, making the best use of our experience, skills and tools offering:
Sound Power and Sound Intensity Measurements
Experimental Modal Analysis
Operational Deflection Shape
Vibration Impact testing
Static and dynamic calculation
Whenever needed a possible mix between tests and calculation helps consolidating the diagnostic, providing the good level of risk assessment and an evaluation of possible solutions to reduce the identified noise and/or vibration issues.
Equipment and tools
Equipment and tools for your needs that can be adapted to any specific context:
Displacement transducers such as laser, wire sensor, proximity probe, Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT)
