Our Advanced Diagnostics service brings solutions to the difficult problems not addressed with standard technologies. These engineering-based services include the detailed analysis of machinery and vibration problems using advanced techniques such as machinery motion modelling (ODS) and transient testing using multi-channel systems for correlation of phase and amplitude data.
Problems that are challenging to solve using conventional techniques, such as resonance, can be diagnosed accurately and effectively with the advanced techniques. From this information, solutions can be found that are both effective and efficient to implement.
Advanced Diagnostics Services List
- Machinery Modeling / ODS
- Run Up / Coast Down Testing
- Resonance Diagnostics
Our newest service, developed with clients over the past few years, is Remote Analysis Service. This is a collaborative service approach between the client site personnel, who collect the data, and our technology specialists who analyze and report on it. This creates a program in which the roles are distributed, and the ownership is shared. The result is a more results-effective and cost-efficient program when properly implemented.
Remote Analysis Programs (RAPs) provide a unique combination of program ownership, the latest instrument technology, access to certified and experienced analysts, and a cost-efficient structure. The programs are established using a fixed monthly fee and dedicated site equipment for predictive maintenance programs owned and operated by the client and fully supported by PDM’s technical staff.
In additional to RAP’s, we offer both remote continuous and remote short-term machinery monitoring as well as remote trouble-shooting services.
