Office Building Window Vibration

An office building had an open atrium that went from ground level up to the roof. In the center of the atrium was a large flowing fountain. Surrounding the fountain were meeting rooms. Each meeting room had a large plate glass window approximately 8 feet tall and 12 feet wide through which the individuals in the meeting room could view the fountain. The problem was that these large plate glass windows had high levels of vibration. The frequency of the vibration was 240 cycles/minute. The floors and walls were all tested and no significant level of the 240 cpm vibration was [...]

Vibration Of Microscope In Microsurgery Room

Equipment: A microscope mounted from the ceiling of a surgery room. The special microscope was used by the surgeon during micro-surgery operations which involved replanting severed fingers and toes. Symptoms: The chief surgeon complained that the image was jittery and that it was very tiring to operate under those conditions, particularly when the scope was set for its maximum magnification. Test Data and Observations: The scope was set to its greatest magnification and printed material was placed on the operating table. Vibration was clearly noticeable, just as the surgeon had indicated. Vibration spectra were taken on both the table and the [...]

From Scrap To Like New

A brick manufacturer had a large fan that pulls air, brick and cement dust thru an overhead duct system into a bag house then through the fan and up a stack. The baghouse requires cleaning frequently and during the cleaning cycle the baghouse is bypassed and the material goes through the fan. This causes buildup on the fan blades and thus an imbalance and vibration. The vibration is so severe it cracks the motor base, bearing base and fan housing. The customer has attempted to deal with this by filling the fan base with concrete, welding large angle iron to the [...]
