Mechanical vibration - Evaluation of machine vibration by measurements on non-rotating parts - Part 5: Machine sets in hydraulic power generating and pumping plants
This part of ISO 10816 gives guidelines for applying bearing housing vibration evaluation criteria measured under normal operating conditions at the bearings, bearing pedestals or bearing housings of the main machine sets in hydraulic power generating and pumping plants. These guidelines are presented in terms of both steady-state running vibration and any amplitude changes which may occur in these steady values. The numerical values specified are not intended to serve as the only basis for vibration evaluation, since, in general, the vibratory condition of a machine is assessed by consideration of both the bearing housing vibration and the associated shaft vibration (see introduction of ISO 10816-1 and ISO 7919-1).
This part of ISO 10816 is applicable to machine sets in hydraulic power generating and pumping plants where the hydraulic machines have speeds from 60 r/min to 1800 r/min, shell or shoe type sleeve bearings and a main engine power of 1 MW and more. The position of the shaft line may be vertical, horizontal or at an arbitrary angle between these two directions.
