Service - Balance
Sportsturbine offers our balancing services to compliment our wide range of turbine services.
All units sent to Sportsturbine are examined and measured for proper balance prior to commencing any work on the turbine. This enables us to establish a benchmark prior to working on the turbine in order for us to inform our customers of the overall balance condition of the motor before we begin our work and for us to compare the finshed results upon completion.
Bearing replacement is the most common reason for requesting balancing, however, many issues can arise which necessitate dismantling of the motor. Dependent on the issue, the unit may have to be rebalanced.
In general, most manufacturers require replacement of bearings at regular intervals. Most require this maintenance to be performed at 25 hour intervals. The time frame can be shorter if vibration is present.
With the high cost of bearings, it is well worth the expense to maintain a turbine in good balance. One thing is certain that any imbalance left unaddressed will shorten the life of the bearings.
