One of the most common causes of improper vibration in rotating machines is the imbalance. For this reason, balancing machines and industrial equipment, such as turbines, generators, fans (among others), is considered fundamental in industrial maintenance.
The imbalance is caused when the center of gravity doesn’t coincide with the center of rotation, thus generating a centrifugal force that is a function of the eccentricity and mass of the imbalance.
The procedure that we use at Vibro Technology for turbines, generators, fans or blowers, is the balance “In Situ” without the need to disassemble the rotor in order to use a balancing machine. We have triaxle accelerometers for fixing and phase measurement and specialized software for balancing in one, two, or multiple planes.
