Case Study | Using Motion Amplification to Detect Mechanical Looseness

Westpower’s Reliability Engineering Services team helped reduce excessive horizontal vibrations of a client’s crude oil tank side entry mixer by 92%. Our reliability experts quickly diagnosed and rectified the issue using Motion Amplification technology, which filters high-speed video to specific frequencies and visualizes imperceptible movements to find the root cause of the issue. This client was able to mitigate any potential failures while significantly increasing their operational reliability.
