Balance is the uneven distribution of weight.
Vibration is shaking driven by oscillation and disturbed equilibrium.
Industrial preventive maintenance is critical to operations. CMT technicians can tell if it’s balance or vibration issues or something else to keep things running smoothly.
Industrial rotating equipment can be several thousand horsepower with process lines that can be as long as a football field.
CMT on-site evaluation process identifies and corrects each variable including vibration analysis, dynamic balance, laser alignment, thermography, bearing integrity, shaft integrity, coupling condition, gearing condition, electrical drives and mounting foundation.
