The fall season is upon us and some hardworking machinery like cooling towers, compressors, and chillers will have reduce demand. That makes this season the perfect time to perform important maintenance on these essential systems. While your cooling machinery is not at peak demand, repairs and tests can be made without the stress of interrupting critical equipment operations.
The Perfect Time for Vibration Analysis
Vibration analysis provides customized online or periodic monitoring programs to accurately predict mechanical problems within a variety of compressors and cooling systems.
VSC uses the latest technology, computer analysis, and trending to identify specific faults before a breakdown, enabling the convenience of scheduled repairs. Vibration analysis periodic monitoring can identify existing problems and accurately forecast future ones. The program’s efficiencies streamline customer maintenance, offering up to a 10 to 1 return on investment.

Over 100 Years of Maintenance Experience
VSC, the leader in vibration analysis since 1918, can design a seasonal program that will help to maximize your production and profits by significantly reducing machinery downtime and operational costs. All machinery produces vibration, whether it is benign or harmful. It is, therefore, necessary to distinguish between the two forms and, when entrusted in the hands of our experienced analysts, the distinction is clear and concise. Our comprehensive reports include detailed analysis with simple recommendations for correcting problems before failure occurs.
When initiating a seasonal vibration analysis program for compressor, chiller, cooling water pump, or cooling tower maintenance, immediate results may reveal numerous equipment faults. While some of these faults are known and common, others are more long-term in nature and can cause issues in the future. As problems are resolved, the numbers of major faults wane, turning a customer’s maintenance program from reactive to proactive. A proactive seasonal maintenance program can help improve productivity, reduce downtime, and allow for easier scheduling of repairs. That type of program is very beneficial as temperatures are cooling in the fall, rather than warming in the spring.
Over time, proactive maintenance creates reliable machinery requiring fewer personnel to maintain it. That means keeping skilled employees active on higher-value tasks, making a difference in your productivity and profitability. Keep your cooling towers, compressors and chillers running in peak condition with seasonal vibration analysis by the experts at VSC.
