Dynamic Balancing


Vibtek are able to undertake On site balancing using the very latest balancing equipment available to the market. The most common application we have found from experience is balancing blower and extract fans within facilities across the UK, by balancing the fan while in its normal operating position at your facility the equipment can be returned to operation immediately following the balancing process. The flexibility and scope of our equipment means balancing can be performed on all types of rotating machinery.

It can help you:

Reduce costly downtime
Increase productivity
Save time and money
Extending the life of machinery
Reduce costly industrial repairs from machinery breakdown
Ensure optimum performance of machinery
Ensure the health and safety of persons working with machinery

Another advantage on site balancing is that it compensates for assembly tolerances, unbalance of pulleys, gears, coupling, and other added components of new or overhauled machinery.

On site balancing:

Eliminates the requirements to completely dismantle and reassemble plant equipment to enable balancing of machine components
Improves product quality
Reduces downtime, labour and material costs
Can be planned into scheduled short time outages e.g. machine mould or process changes
Extends bearing and machine life
Reduces the possibility of catastrophic failures
Increases safety

Examples of industries using our services are:

Power generating plants
Water and gas utilities
Manufacturing facilities
Pulp and paper mills
Steel mills
Other commercial and industrial applications

Types of equipment we normally service on site include:

Pump impellers
Steam and gas turbine generators
Motor Rotors

Vibtek engineers come to your facility and balance your equipment in position, on site saving your business excessive removal costs. We specialise in on site balancing of large rotating machinery.
