The importance of accurately aligning direct drive shafts, whether a simple Pump, Gearbox Train or High Speed Turbine is well known. CLENG Alignment engineer’s have a wealth of experience that ensure todays tight tolerances are achieved.
With increases in production, process and machinery speeds the importance of precision alignment has become crucial to machinery condition. Misalignment will cause increased vibration and heat not only on the coupling but all connected components.
Correctly aligned rotating machines across couplings of pumps, fans, gearboxes, compressors or turbines ensures savings by prolonging the equipment life.
CLENG Laser alignment avoids damage to components such as bearings, shafts, compressor shaft seals and couplings.
- Additional benefits and savings include:
- Avoid labour costs incurred to replace damaged components
- Avoid downtime costs whilst damaged components are replaced
- Improved power consumption
- Improved plant safety by reducing the risk of sheared shafts and couplings
All CLENG Laser Alignment applications are carried out to either the manufacturers, or to recognised ISO alignment tolerances. A final Vibration Level & Thermographic report will also be produced.
CLENG assist us on a regular basis, aligning various machines including high speed compressors following overhaul. CLENG alignment engineers have always been professional and technically competent.
