Successfully using vibratory equipment requires understanding how unplanned vibration can affect your process and other equipment and structures. Part I of this two-part article, which appeared in the April 1995 issue, covers some vibration basics, then explains how vibration affects equipment and structures as well as bulk materials. It also discusses meeting vibratory equipment criteria and how to specify, install, and maintain vibratory equipment to minimize unplanned vibration effects.
Part II includes case histories describing successful applications of vibratory equipment and remedies for unplanned vibration effects in various processes. Also included is a list of dos and don'ts for selecting and using vibratory equipment. Related information covers the author's experience in educating engineers about vibration effects.
