Ground vibration comes from many sources in the construction, mining and energy development industries - but no matter where it comes from, it can create concerns for equipment, structures or adjacent neighbors. When dealing with equipment, vibration levels may require monitoring and analysis to prevent damage. Where people are involved, there may be an even lower tolerance threshold to consider. GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech vibration monitoring services provide the solid technical information needed to assess such concerns and devise solutions.
Computers, electronics, manufacturing facilities, nanotechnology and similar sensitive equipment and structures require particularly special vibration monitoring and evaluation. GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech has specific range sensors to monitor vibration and noise below the threshold that humans feel, but which can still affect such equipment and structures. We have performed evaluations for locating nanotechnology research facilities and computer chip manufacturers. Our instrumentation has been used for isolation review for air conditioning, identification of vibration affecting hospital imaging systems, and much more. We can also prepare floor response studies and follow-up recommendations on structure modifications.
GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech vibration monitoring is also a critical tool to alleviate neighbor concerns and avoid or defend yourself against complaints. We use state-of-the-art instrumentation over and above standard blasting seismographs. Our capabilities far exceed others in the field, ensuring results of unassailable integrity. All of our units maintain the highest calibration evaluations and standards. When equipment works properly, no questions can be generated about the accuracy of the information, which also provides the basis for sound technical evaluations.
GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech's principals have authored numerous publications related to vibration monitoring and have assisted in developing standards for communities in the monitoring and assessment of vibration. High qualifications, third-party objectivity and professional ethics are the key to our services and success. You can count on us to identify and solve your vibration-related problems.
