Noise change as an indicator of maintenance requirement

Noise change as an indicator of maintenance requirement Machine malfunction may be detected from the change in its noise level sensed by the ear or measured by a sound level meter. When various machines run concurrently in a workshop, it is not easy to detect noise change. This paper presents the development of a system of equations relating to the combined noise level at each machine with the individual noise level and the inter‐machine distances. A method is presented to detect a malfunctioned machine by solving a system of equations and a case study is included. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Machine malfunction may be detected from the change in its noise level sensed by the ear or measured by a sound level meter. When various machines run concurrently in a workshop, it is not easy to detect noise change. This paper presents the development of a system of equations relating to the combined noise level at each machine with the individual noise level and the inter‐machine distances. A method is presented to detect a malfunctioned machine by solving a system of equations and a case study is included.
