ADA™ the Automated Diagnostic Assistant – Saves you time

We believe that your most valuable commodity is time. ADA™ the Automated Diagnostic Assistant is designed to save both time and money by automatically detecting the onset of a range of common vibration problems.

ADA™ can predict stage 2, 3 and 4 bearing failure and detect a wide range of other common fault conditions that impact on the reliability of your equipment. It helps set priorities for busy maintenance people and save time by indicating from a mass of data what might be important to improve reliability.

The ADA™ algorithms have been developed by AVT Reliability® vibration experts based upon thousands of hours of vibration data coupled with field experience. ADA™ acts as an aide to the on-site maintenance team identifying potential causes for concern.

Faults diagnosed include:

  • Bearing stage 2, 3, or 4
  • Unbalance (couple, static, dynamic and overhung)
  • Bent shaft
  • Resonance
  • Parallel, angular, or complex misalignment
  • Cocked bearing
  • Structural or rotating looseness
  • Blade or vane pass issues
  • Soft foot
  • Cavitation
  • Lack of lubrication
  • Gear misalignment
  • Gear backlash / eccentricity
  • Gear tooth broken
  • Gear tooth wear

Machine Sentry® uses a combination of ISO standard velocity, acceleration and statistical alarms to highlight assets which are of concern.

An expert at your fingertips

ADA™ is intended to benefit maintenance departments who are passionate about using predictive and / or preventative maintenance to improve reliability. Early action on the detected fault conditions will prevent some catastrophic failures that would have consumed costly materials and most importantly time to rectify.

Having highlighted an issue, ADA™ provides verification guidance to confirm the diagnosis.
