We are aware that industrial machinery plays an essential role in numerous economic sectors, from power generation to product manufacturing. As this machinery operates at high speeds and loads during use, it is essential to ensure both safety and optimum performance. At Espirales CHIA we manufacture industrial machinery for the port, oil and mining sectors, but we are also experts in repair and maintenance.

Engine and system performance evaluation

The main purpose of overspeed testing on industrial machinery is to evaluate the ability of an engine or system to withstand high speeds for an extended period of time. This is especially crucial in applications such as compressors, where the motor is subjected to extreme loads and speeds during normal operation.

Test techniques used

To carry out these tests, techniques similar to those used in other industries, such as aerospace and automotive, are employed. This includes the use of a dynamic test platform, such as a test rig or wind tunnel, to simulate high-speed conditions.

Evaluation of key parameters

During these tests, the engine or system is subjected to high-speed loads for an extended period, while various parameters such as temperature, pressure and vibration are measured and recorded.

Expanding the scope of testing

In addition to evaluating engine performance, these tests can also be used to examine other parts of the machinery, such as the chassis, transmission and braking system.

Safety as a priority

It is essential to keep in mind that overspeed tests are not only intended to evaluate the performance of the machinery. They are also crucial to ensure the safety of workers and the general public.

For example, in applications such as power production, a failure of the engine or drive system at high speeds can have serious consequences.

In summary, overspeed testing of industrial machinery is an integral part of the maintenance and safe operation of any type of industrial machinery. These tests not only help to ensure the optimal performance of the machinery, but also contribute significantly to workplace safety and the protection of the general public.
