Crack detection in rotating shaft kit (MV – 005.2) allows trainees to use of a computerized vibration analyzer and change in characteristic vibration behavior (natural frequency, resonance speed, amplitude and phase of vibrations) due to a crack. Trainees will be able to determine the detection of cracks in rotating shafts at the protruding shaft end.
- Crack Detection in Rotating Shaft Kit is mounted on the base plate of the machinery diagnostic base system.
- The crack is simulated by an asymmetric flange joint. Variable tightening of the flange bolts produces a temporary gaping of the butt joint, which closely approximates to the behavior of a crack.
- This module includes two shafts of different lengths: one short and one long.
- The short shaft simulates a protruding shaft end, and is loaded with the belt drive.
