The vibration measurements shall be made at the following locations: z a) on the bearing housing(s) or equivalent location(s) of all pumps, at the positions shown on Figure 27 and Figure 28; b) on the shaft of pumps with hydrodynamic bearings with proximity probes, if the pump has provisions for proximity probes.
