The paper deals with the local damage detection in rolling element bearings in presence of a high level non-Gaussian noise. In practice, damage detection problem has to concern filtering, decomposition or extraction issue. Unfortunately, in the most of the industrial systems mentioned unwanted sources are in fact not Gaussian, so many of de-noising techniques cannot be applied directly or at least might give unexpected results. In this paper an industrial example will be discussed and novel approach based on advanced cyclostationary-based technique will be proposed. In the paper disturbances include periodic impacts in reciprocating compressor on an oil rig. Existing classical detection techniques (statistics in time domain, analysis of envelope spectrum, time-frequency decompositions) are insufficient to perform the task due to high power of disturbance contribution in comparison to damage signature. In the proposed technique, the Spectral Coherence Density Map (SCDM) is estimated first. Next step is related to analysis of SCDM contents and selection of informative part of the map.
