SERVICES | MEASUREMENTS
The process of taking measurements is more than operating the sophisticated equipment and collecting data. Details such as where to place the measuring equipment, how many readings to take, at what time intervals to take the readings, conditions that may affect the readings, these factors need to be thoroughly considered prior to measurements to ensure readings taken are relevant and accurate for analysis. This is where technical know-how and experience comes into place.
Noise MeasurementsNoise measurement is carried out in various fields. In acoustics, it can be for the purpose of measuring environmental noise, or part of a test procedure using white noise, or some other specialised form of test signal.
Vibration MeasurementsVibration is a time-based (periodic/cyclic) displacement of an object around a center static position. The following contributing factors have a complex relationship with the magnitude and rate of the vibration:
- The object’s own natural frequencies and stiffness
- The amplitude and frequencies of any external energy source(s) inducing the vibration
- The coupling mechanism between vibration energy source and the object of interest.
Commissioning MeasurementsThe finishing touch to the design and build, where readings / measurements need to be taken while the machinery or system undergo operational conditions. This is to ensure that the machinery or system can survive the “test” and thereafter, be commissioned to be fully capable of performing at its intended capacity and ability.
