The Company

Who We Are

We've come a long way since our early days, troubleshooting problems in the field back in 1967. We've built on this experience, and over the past four decades, Beta Machinery Analysis (BETA) has become a premier machinery consultant specializing in rotating and reciprocating machines.

BETA remains an independent, employee owned company with offices in Houston, Calgary, Kuala Lumpur, and sales support in Beijing and Abu Dhabi.

BETA has more than 60 experienced staff involved in three main areas of expertise; 

> design studies for compressors, pumps, and associated equipment

> field troubleshooting, and 

> condition and performance monitoring.

A few of our people are pictured here and throughout our web site.

Our professional engineers and technical staff have helped BETA become a leader in compressor design studies – which include the analysis of pulsations (acoustics), torsional vibration, mechanical resonance, skids, foundation, and structural dynamics. We enjoy a global leadership position by working with OEMs, Compressor Packagers, Engineering Consultants, and directly with Owners, or End Users. We validate our designs in the field and get real time feedback, resulting in solid designs, proven recommendations, and practical solutions.
