Acceptance Testing is an acceptability testing function, performed to give asset owners complete confidence in their critical equipment’s compliance and long-term durability.
The cost of transporting and installing critical equipment to site can prove extremely costly and resource intensive. The last thing that an asset owner needs to learn on the start-up of equipment is that a fault is present which could result in costly down-time and potentially, a loss of production.
Within ALS’s condition monitoring services, we offer a cost-effective workshop acceptance testing service, which aligns with the principles of ISO acceptance codes to steer clear of vibration anomalies. Performed at workshops and site facilities, this testing is designed to identify any potential faults on rotating assets that warrants urgent attention prior to the equipment being transported and commissioned.
This testing also provides equipment suppliers and repair companies with peace of mind, knowing that their equipment is in good condition prior to being handed over to the end client. ALS technicians are certified to ISO 18436 standards and are extensively experienced with equipment reliability, failure modes and symptoms of failure. Our technicians gather vibration data directly from machines and analyse this information both at the workshop facilities, for rapid interpretation turnaround, and at our ALS facilities.
Applications for workshop acceptance testing includes, but is not limited to:
- Vibrating screens and exciter gearboxes
- Conveyor pulleys
- Locomotive traction motors
- Fans and flywheels
