This practical, how-to guide offers field engineers, technicians, specialists and all others responsible for the installation, production and maintenance of equipment with proven methods for balancing machinery in order to reduce production loss, lower maintenance costs, and prevent costly downtime resulting from machinery failure. From the fundamentals of balancing to more advanced techniques, this reference demonstrates exactly how to solve any type of balancing problem on any piece of equipment. The book presents detailed coverage of the range of mass balancing methods in use today - including balancing with no instruments, the four-run method without phase, single-plane method, static-couple method, flexible rotor balancing and balancing nonrotating parts. In addition, it defines the basic balancing vocabulary and concepts, explores the history and future of the art of balancing, reviews important safety considerations and discusses balancing standards. Of particular interest are the hundreds of illustrations, real-world case studies and fully-worked examples that demonstrate how to apply the methods presented to troubleshoot any machinery balance problems.
