Abstract: Vibration analysis is one of the powerful tool used in condition monitoring of machinery. Through the years a variety of methods was developed to monitor the operation and onset of failures cost effectively.This analysis helps in early detection of faults and failures and thus reduces the losses in industry. This increases the operation and working efficiency of the machinery. Specific aspects to consider while doing vibration measurements are the placement of the probe, type of the probe to be used, operating frequency range etc. This information is relevant in predictive maintenance point of view to establish which component requires replacement and continuous running of plant without breakdown. Once the measurements are taken the method and the technique to analyse the problems are discussed in this paper using a case study. In this work the importance of vibration analysis in an industry is highlighted with a case study. The work was done at BPCL Kochi refinery. This work gives an overview of how vibration analysis can be used to monitor the operation of pumps.
