Pumping sets play an important role in industrial plant and need continuous monitoring to minimize the loss of production. Pump defects can cause major problems if it is not repaired in the early stages, as it might cause process downtime and high cost of repair. Thus, it is important to detect the early signs of wear in the pump so precautions can be taken and process shut down can be planned in advance so that it does not affect the production or process. Vibration analysis is one the proven reliable method in determing the early signs of problems in pumps by interpreting the vibration data from the rotary components. Abnormal vibration data are studied thoroughly by experts to determine the source of the problem and the intensity of the problem. In this case study, the vibration of the vertical centrifugal pump are studied. The vibration data of vertical centrifugal pump is studied using MATLAB solution to determine the vibration of the pump at different parameters. The results obtain are compared with LUDECA Machinery Fault Diagnosis Guidelines to determine the type of problem and the severity of the problem, where the amplitude of the graph obtained shows the severity of the problem and the frequency of the graph shows the type of fault.
