Portable Balancing

When it comes to dynamic balancing there is a choice:-

  • dis-assemble the machine and have the rotor balanced in a universal balancing machine.
  • Field balancing - where the rotor is balanced in service without disassembly.

The next question is which one is best ?

There is a place for both, - it depends on the circumstances.

The balancing process is very fast in a balancing machine; so where the rotor is disassembled for maintenance this is the obvious choice. Very large unbalances can be accurately measured at low speed and removed without endangering the safety of the equipment, personnel or other machinery.

Unbalance can be introduced during the process of assembly and re-commissioning so it is a good idea to check the unbalance before machines are put back into service, with a field balancer / vibration analyser.

Other rotating equipment eg dust extraction fans, pulverizers,experience change in unbalance during service and field balancing at intervals while in service can dramatically reduce maintenance costs and help avoid breakdown.

SmartBalancer
The intelligent way to field balancing simple – fast – accurate The SmartBalancer portable measuring instrument provides the tools to
  • Asses the severity of machine vibrations according to ISO10816-3,
  • Determine when excessive vibration is caused by unbalance (FFT)
  • Efficiently reduce unbalance to acceptable levels by calculating the required unbalance correction in either one or two planes
  • identify and avoid machine resonances during balancing by either “Run-up” / “Run down” or “Bump test” functions
  • Document measurements and balancing reports by downloading to a computer
  • Optional enhanced reporting function is available
  • Optional Roller Bearing assessment function is available

VIBROTEST 80
VIBROTEST 80 Compact data collector with full analyzer and balancing capabilities VIBROTEST 80 is a compact version of the VIBROPORT 80 measuring instrument, with the same modular design and the same intuitive operation. VIBROTEST 80 adapts to your requirements, whether used purely as a balancer or as a four-channel comprehensive vibration measurement instrument.
VIBROPORT 80 – Portable solution for fault detection, analysis, balancing and data collection
VIBROPORT 80 is the first of the generation of Brüel & Kjær Vibro’s portable measuring instruments. Ease of operation, versatility, modular setup, and flexibility in demanding applications were the important design criteria in developing this particular instrument.  Additionally, VIBROPORT 80 is even more powerful than its predecessors with new capabilies and analysis functions, in particular:
  • ATEX and IECEx rated intrinsically safe version is available for use in explosive environments
  • 2 channel operation as standard, options for up to 4 measuring channels, in addition to speed
VIBROPORT 80 is the ideal portable vibration instrument for helping deliver machine uptime to your plant.
