Improper balance may be the cause of increased vibration
Experiencing increased vibration on one of your generators or fans? Improper balance may be the culprit and, if ignored, can result in costly and inconvenient downtime.
A major cruise line reached out to AME about worrisome vibration on one of their diesel generators. Before attending the vessel, custom weights were machined to perform dynamic balancing onboard. Using Pruftechnik Group - North America's VIBXPERT II, our technician was able to detect and correct the unbalanced generator and perform a pre & post vibration analysis to track results. The vibration levels decreased significantly.
Ensure your machinery is properly balanced to ISO 1940 standards to keep your machine working for you.
