A well balanced rotor can extend the useful life of itself and other machinery components. The cyclic loads resulting from rotor imbalance can shorten the life of bearings, seals, foundations, and supporting structure.
Balancing of rotating elements under actual operating conditions is an effective, and many times, a most economical way to achieve a smooth operating machine. Balancing methods employed will be specific for the machinery involved.
Available methods -
- Unified Balancing Method
- Modal Balancing Method
- Multi-Plane, Multi-Speed
