CASE STUDY: METRIX – Vibration Monitoring of Integrally Geared Centrifugal (IGC) Compressors, Animated Video

Project Summary

In an endeavor to enhance understanding and implementation of vibration monitoring for Integrally Geared Centrifugal (IGC) Compressors, our client METRIX commissioned and collaborated with IMMIX Productions to create an insightful and educational animation video. This project aimed to provide comprehensive details on how METRIX’s scalable solutions can cater to the monitoring needs of both API 617 Process Compressors and API 672 Packaged Air Compressors.

Additional Project Information and Case Study Details

The animation meticulously covers the essential components of IGC Compressors, explaining the functionality of each part, including the Bull Gear, Pinions, Impellers, Radial Bearings, and Thrust Bearings. Additionally, it delves into the significance of monitoring with MX8030 Radial Vibration Proximity Probes, which are crucial for ensuring the precision and efficiency of these compressors.

IMMIX Productions worked closely with the METRIX design team to create a visually compelling and technically accurate animation. The video demonstrates the application of the METRIX Digital Proximity System, highlighting advanced features like Cross Talk elimination, Spike Suppression, and high-speed RPM measurements.

These features showcase the capability of METRIX products to handle the demands of industrial environments, thereby minimizing unplanned downtime and avoiding catastrophic failures.

The project’s objective was to provide a clear, concise, and engaging narrative that not only details the benefits of METRIX products but also educates the audience on the importance of proper vibration monitoring. The animation effectively simplifies complex concepts and offers a visual representation that enhances understanding and retention.

Project Specifications

The final video produced for METRIX by IMMIX Productions encapsulates technical precision and creative storytelling. To ensure that the video meets the highest standards and serves its intended purpose effectively, the following specifications were adhered to:

  • Total Running Time: Approximately 5 minutes.
  • Output Resolution: Optimized for maximum resolution and playback performance at 1920 X 1080, suitable for website or local desktop delivery.
  • Content Style: A hybrid of 3D elements and motion graphics, maintaining a consistent look and feel with previous animations produced by IMMIX for METRIX.
  • Optimization Focus: Ensured seamless playback performance and high-quality visuals to enhance viewer engagement and comprehension.

These specifications guarantee that the video delivers an impactful and educational experience, aligning with METRIX’s standards of excellence.


The collaboration between IMMIX Productions and METRIX proved to be highly fruitful, resulting in an educational tool that underscores the criticality of precision in vibration monitoring. The animation efficiently bridges the gap between technical specifications and practical applications, providing a resource that is both informative and engaging.

The use of advanced visualization techniques by IMMIX Productions has elevated the overall impact of the content, making complex machinery and monitoring systems accessible to a broader audience. By utilizing real-world scenarios and practical examples, the animation underscores the robustness and reliability of METRIX’s offerings in the realm of industrial monitoring.

This project stands as a testament to the power of collaboration and the importance of pairing technical expertise with creative storytelling to deliver impactful educational resources.
