Machine alignment with the system BALTECH SA-4300

«Sven, the third pump has broken down again. The electricians said the strong vibration have damaged the front bearing and the pump failed». Such emergency situations often occur at the most inappropriate moment and your enterprise is probably no exception.

It is common knowledge that such problems can appear during the assembly and erection of machines and in the course of their further operation. To ensure proper bearing installation we recommend to use BALTECH TOOLS and BALTECH HI-1610. We have been scrutinizing the problems of rotor and dynamic equipment for more than fifteen years and came to the decision that this problem often takes place at the industrial enterprises and the specialists often try to quickly eliminate the problem without solving it totally.

One of such problems is shaft misalignment when the rotational centers of two shafts are not collinear. The misalignment can be angular or parallel. Based on our experience, more than 50 emergency shutdowns are caused by the shaft misalignment. So what can cause the misalignment?:

  1. Considerable reduction of equipment life, reliability and performance
  2. Increased power consumption
  3. Increased costs for consumables such as bearings, seals, oil, etc. We recommend to use BALTECH OA for oil analysis.
  4. Reduction of enterprise performance efficiency due to frequent failures of the equipment.
  5. How much can the enterprise get out of the unreliable equipment? Quality is always a very important factor.

To ensure fast and qualitative shaft alignment we offer you the electronic and mechanical system BALTECH SA-4300 and mechanical systems BALTECH SA-4200, -4100, -4000 that allow selecting between two alignment methods: the rim and face and reverse indicator method. The system provides high accuracy shaft alignment in accordance with the existing tolerances. The system is designed to perform a horizontal and vertical shaft alignment, check and elimination of “soft foot”, dynamic movement compensation. The alignment data can be transferred to PC via the BALTECH Expert software for analysis and trending.

BALTECH SA-4300 combines a precise device and optimal price which provides you with the efficient shaft alignment.

Based on our experience, to ensure the reliable equipment operation you should perform: vibration analysis, balancing, alignment. We invite you to attend our seminars «Reliability technologies».
