Vibration Monitoring Instrumentation & Field Practices ULTRA ENVIRO-SYSTEMS (P) LTD. New Delhi
ULTRA ENVIRO-SYSTEMS (P) LTD. Visionary and founder Late Shyam Sunder Sharma started Globe Agencies in 1969 to Sell Support and Service high technological instrumentation in Mining, Atmospheric and Earth Sciences. We have maintained over the years “High Quality Personalized Sales & After Sales Services to our customers”. We work in close coordination with customers and our foreign collaborators and principals to offer technological instruments and systems best suited to Indian conditions. We also offer total Indian Solutions using Local Contents, Layouts and Hardware.
Scientific Rock Blasting means breaking rock using controlled explosive energy in meaningful sizes suitable to the deployed plant & machinery. * Rock Blasting is a fine blend of Science & Art Blaster Artistic Kit * Blaster Artistic Kit is designed to promote: a) Enviro-friendly Blasting b) Quality & Blast optimization c) Blast Data Management
Overview of the Presentation Why use a Vibration Monitor Vibration Terminology Configuring your Seismograph Placement of your Geophone and Microphone Different type of sensors Understanding a Seismograph report Control Blasting Techniques
Why use a Vibration Monitor “Seismograph” Document Compliance with established vibration guidelines Protect Structures Minimize risk of damage or annoyance Protect yourself against claims and lawsuits Control Blasting and Optimizing Blast using Vibration Record
Vibration Terminology Geophone - The sensor for measuring ground vibrations Microphone - Sensor used for measuring air blast Peak Particle Velocity (PPV): - Maximum velocity over the record time on each channel measured in mm/sec Air Overpressure - Air pressure wave resulting from the blast is reported in dB(L) for linear or dB(A) weight Peak Sound Pressure Level Velocity (PSPL): - Maximum Air over pressure the record time on Microphone channel in dB(L) as unit of noise.
Configure the Seismograph Select your Instantel® Monitor:
Blastmate III™ Seismograph ISEE Linear, A-Weight, or High Pressure Microphone with windscreen Sectional Microphone Stand Storage for sensors, microphone stand, geophone spikes and accessories Integrated Thermal Printer ISEE or DIN Geophone or other supported Sensor (e.g. Hydrophone, Low/High Level Geophones, Accelerometers) Connectors: Auxiliary Power Geophone Microphone Water and shock resistant carrying case Monitor interface: Keypad and LCD Remote Alarm Modem Breakout Box Wire Trigger 120 VAC International VAC 12 VDC Battery Car Adaptor Solar Panel ISEE or DIN Accelerometer High/Low Level Geo Borehole Geo Hydrophone ISEE A-Weight High Pressure

15 Configure the Seismograph Step 1: Select the Record Mode Available Record Mode selections: –Single-Shot –Continuous –Manual –Histogram –Histogram Combo
16 Configure the Seismograph Step 2: Select the Sample Rate Available Sample Rates include 1024, 2048 and 4096 With the a Standard Geophone ISEE, a Sample Rate of 1024 samples per second is more than sufficient. With the a Standard Geophone DIN, a Sample Rate of 2048 samples per second is more than sufficient. In Storage Mode, ensure that the monitor is set to Save All Data
Step 2: Select the Sample Rate Available Sample Rates include 1024, 2048 and 4096 With the a Standard Geophone ISEE, a Sample Rate of 1024 samples per second is more than sufficient. With the a Standard Geophone DIN, a Sample Rate of 2048 samples per second is more than sufficient. In Storage Mode, ensure that the monitor is set to Save All Data Step 3: Set the Maximum Geophone Range 254 mm/s or 31.7 mm/s 17 Configure the Seismograph
Step 4: Select the Trigger Source Geo/Microphone/Geophone /Microphone Step 5: Select the Trigger Level Generally a level of <2 mm/s is sufficient for rock blasting/ construction vibration 18 Configure the Seismograph
Step 6: Set the Record Time (continued) NOTE: Add the blast duration plus 1 second of Record Time for every 335 m (1100 ft.) between the seismograph and the blast, otherwise you may cut off the recorded event, like the sample shown below: Configure the Seismograph
21 Configure the Seismograph Step 7: Option Notes Select the Option Notes key to enter site information. NOTE: These are text fields that will appear in the Event Report if populated. Location Client User name General Extended Notes Job Number Step 9: Adjust Special Setups Timer Mode:Select Daily or Off Daily Self Check: This will enter a line in the Monitor Log, telling the user that the monitor was functioning properly on the specified date Sensor Check: Select Before, After or Disable to determine if and when a Sensor Check will be performed. The results will appear on the Event Report Units of Measurements: Set the units to either Imperial or Metric Step 10: Set Time and Date

Placement of Geophone by Bolting or Attachment Right Wrong
Placement of Geophone by Sandbagging and Microphone Faces Blast Right Wrong 5 Kg
Remote Monitoring Need to gather data from your site – not looking forward to the two-hour roundtrip? Is your job site hard-to-reach? Or maybe the event results need to be forwarded to several customers, clients or regulatory agencies simultaneously. The solution may be to establish a permanent or semi- permanent monitoring station that can be downloaded using telemetry. Instantel provides the features you need to quickly and easily set up remote monitoring stations and networks. The Instantel® Auto Call Home™ automated call-in feature, allows remote access to your monitor and data. Whenever an event occurs, the monitor automatically places a call to your PC and downloads event data into one central location on your hard disk drive. Communication can be established using telephone, cellular, GSM or satellite modem connections. Once the files are on your computer, Instantel Blastware™ software enables automatic distribution of data to a wide variety of devices, such as cellular phones, pagers, PDA’s and PCs. You create "accounts" that specify what information will be sent to which recipients the entire event file, or selected data for each channel. You can also send different information to different recipients, or choose to time-delay distribution.Blastware™ software Auto Call Home™ feature NoYes PackagingCompact Standard

Why Calibration is Important Calibration is important to ensure the instrument is performing as per designed specification. Although seismographs are designed to be used in a rugged environment, they are still a sophisticated electronic monitoring device. Therefore, preventative maintenance becomes an important part of the annual calibration process. Calibrated vibration instrument can prevent legal litigations.
Different type of sensor
