Application Note | Power Steering Pump: Vane Defect Detection Using Signature Analysis

Application note coverA power steering pump manufacturer required a solution that accurately detected the most subtle vane defects prior to final assembly to avoid costly tear downs due to the objectionable noise and vibration (NVH) they can create. A Sciemetric test and analysis system was installed and configured to observe the pressure waveform, allowing easy detection of missing, nicked, bent and slightly stuck vanes.
