Applications of Acoustic Emission Techniques for Diagnosis of Large Rotating Machinery and Mass Production Products


In order to maintain efficient plant operability, better reliability and preventive maintenance are required. When a machine experiences some problem during use, operators must find the cause of trouble, then take measures to prevent serious damage. Acoustic emission (AE) is a useful means of machine condition diagnosis. The AE technique can detect incipient failure and locate the source.

This paper describes applications of AE techniques for large rotating machinery diagnosis, development of diagnosis systems using algorithms obtained from AE characteristics analyses, and applications for the diagnosis of rotary compressors in air conditioners.
