ISO 10816-3 (a new standard of International Organization for Standardization) was established as vibration criteria for industrial rotating machinery based on the bearing housing vibration in situ. The appropriateness of the application of the proposed vibration criteria to pumps was discussed and studied by a work group in Japan. For the assessment, the data of vibration level in field were measured, and the effects of driver output, rotational speed, and pump type were studied. This paper describes the applicability of the new ISO criteria to the evaluation of vibration level of pumps, based on the results of the field measurements. It was found that the new boundaries of evaluation zones, which are acceptable for unrestricted long-term operation of pumps, are quite appropriate and satisfactory.
