Methods of correcting unbalance

Dynamic balancing involves the adjustment of a rotor’s balance by adding or removing weight. Firstly, we need to determine the components’ unbalance. We calculate this whilst the rotor is rotating at a predetermined speed. The information from this process gives insight into the amount of weight required to counterbalance areas that are either too light […]

The importance of impeller balancing and inspection

Impeller balancing and inspection is imperative to the smooth operation of your machine. The extremely high rotational speed of an impeller means that if it is vibrating, this could be the result of misalignment and unbalance, causing critical damage to other components and bearings.  When an impeller is out of balance, the tell-tale signs to […]

The benefits of Machine Condition Monitoring for rotating machinery

What is Machine Condition Monitoring? Machine Condition Monitoring is a critical component of a predictive maintenance program, and is usually carried out on rotating equipment and other machinery including pumps, electric motors and compressors.  Rotating machinery is often critical to the running of processing plants, and their reliability must be guaranteed at all times. Machine […]
