Balancing & Alignment
There is virtually unanimous agreement among maintenance and engineering staffs that misalignment and imbalance are the most common faults found in rotating equipment. Improved balancing and alignment procedures and tools for certified installation have been found to extend the life of machines from months to years. This root-cause maintenance strategy, also
known as proactive maintenance, gives organizations a key management tool to maximize the reliability and availability of production assets.
Coservices does precision shaft alignments and rotor balancing to reduce vibration, reduce machine component wear, minimize power consumption and extend machine life.
Laser alignmentWith the Model 8215/8225 Balancing system , you have to attach sensor heads to shafts which are typically coupled. Laser beams are emitted from each sensor head and targeted on the opposite sensor head. Each shaft position is measured in relation to the other shaft by rotating the two shafts. Shaft misalignment is calculated from the position of each laser beam on its respective target, at a range of angular positions of the laser heads. The position of each laser beam on its target transmits from each sensor head to the Model 2130 analyzer through radio frequency (RF) or direct cable communication.
BalancingImbalance generates high vibrations at rotating speed. It occurs when the centerline of a shaft does not correspond with the mass centerline.
Coservices uses the CSI 2130 advanced analyser for balancing. It will typically take 3 machine run & stops to solve a balance problem.
