Vibration and noise analysis

Improving the integrity, reliability and performance of piping systems, structures and rotating equipment

We're the leading consultants for vibration, dynamics and noise. Our expertise is backed by global support, innovative software and decades of experience.

Static equipment and structures (piping vibration) – managing vibration and reducing the risk of fatigue failure, including small bore, AIV, FIV and all other vibration sources

Machinery analysis – providing design analyses to avoid vibration in compressor and pump systems, including pulsation, surge, torsional vibration and resonances

Rotating equipment reliability – supporting rotating equipment assets with comprehensive monitoring, performance and reliability services

Noise management – helping you manage noise risks, ensuring health, safety and environmental compliance

Field services – mobilizing quickly to provide failure analysis, vibration measurements, improvement plans and site support

Anti-vibration products – solutions to address vibration and thermal stress, including DamperX clamps and supports
