Currently, there are no industry standards for reciprocating compressor piston rod vibration to be used for protection. In addition to American Petroleum Institute (API) recommended shutdown parameters, there is an emergent need to look towards peak-to-peak piston rod vibration as another protection mechanism.

Part 1 of this article introduced steady-state plots for data from highly critical rotating machines with fluid film bearings and proximity probes. In Part 2 of this article, learn how “dynamic” (waveform) plots and “transient” (changing machine speed) plots can provide vital information for machinery diagnostics.


Bently Nevada is pleased to present System 1 Version 18.1. The added capabilities continue to strengthen our industry-leading Machinery Condition Monitoring & Diagnostics toolset for Turbomachinery, Reciprocating Compressors, and General Rotating Equipment.

Maximize the benefit of your Bently Nevada equipment and strengthen the machinery diagnostic capabilities of your organization by taking advantage of our hands-on training courses. Our Advanced Machinery Dynamics and Advanced Field Balancing courses in June provide advanced training on skills to diagnose and solve complex machinery problems.

Even if your Adapt 3701 monitors are not connected to a permanent network for continuous online monitoring, they still capture extremely useful trend data and dynamic data during machine startup and shutdown events and whenever alarms occur.
