Vibration monitoring for aero engines

Sensing and monitoring solutions to increase engine safety and reliability

Improving engine reliability to enhance safety, increase engine efficiency and minimise downtime as part of condition-based maintenance are top priorities for engine manufacturers. Maintenance teams depend on vibration analysis and diagnostics as a key part of preventive maintenance programmes. Excessive vibration can indicate potential engine faults including unbalance, misalignment or looseness.

For decades, Meggitt’s sensing and monitoring solutions have been used to detect faults, prevent damage and avoid costly repairs. They optimise the maintenance and performance of the engines and provide engine efficiency and lower noise in the cabin.

Our pressure sensors, temperature sensors and speed sensors have been used to indicate engine faults. By detecting serious problems at an early stage, our sensors enable technical personnel to perform maintenance and reduce unplanned downtime.

Meggitt’s engine vibration monitoring units (EVM) acquire engine vibration data for efficient post-flight calculation and implementation of cold fan trim balancing with minimal disruption and reducing costs.

Using our engine health/condition monitoring units (EMU), in addition to vibration monitoring, can provide additional sensor inputs, including pressure, temperature, strain gauge, fuel meter, oil debris and oil level.
