Unbalance is a leading cause of damage in rotating equipment. The stress over time caused by imbalance leads to early failure and unnecessary downtime. Common causes of imbalance include: looseness, thermal changes, tooling changes, maintenance repairs, bent shafts, bowed shafts, and product build up (found commonly in blowers, compressors, and fans). Imbalance can also be an indicator of old equipment caused by corrosion or erosion of the bearings, rotors, or seals.
Everything from belt pulleys, fans, ventilators, couplings, compressors, blowers, motors, and other rotating equipment can benefit from being balanced.
