Acceptance Testing & Contracts

MDS can take part in rotating machinery factory acceptance testing. Testing ensures that machines meet the specifications specified in the customer contract. MDS is well-versed in all API specifications. Furthermore, we can collaborate with you to develop testing procedures tailored to your specific machine and application. Acceptance testing also aids in the determination and verification of synchronous machinery characteristics such as balance resonance speeds, amplification factor, and potential issues. This information provides the insight required for accepting the machine as well as reference data for comparison during commissioning. It also provides feedback to the machine manufacturer on the mechanical behaviour of the machine. Prior to putting a machine into service, potential problems can be identified and appropriate action taken.

Acceptance testing documentation is customised to your specifications. It can be as simple as an executive summary with supporting data or as detailed as a rotor model based on actual machine behaviour.

"NIMDC" can also offer annual contracts for Machinery Diagnostics Services, which include monitoring, analysis, troubleshooting, and balancing of your plant's turbomachinery and other rotating equipment  

Field commissioning is carried out during the initial start-up of new or recently rebuilt machinery. MDS engineers from "NIMDC" collect reference data on the machines and provide detailed engineering reports to document the initial installation performance. These reports are used to compare the machine's performance and overall mechanical integrity in the future for predictive maintenance programmes, as well as to evaluate the effectiveness of maintenance and turnaround procedures.nbsp;
