Nearly 50% of all breakdowns are caused by misalignments, causing downtime, and repairs costing you time and money. Vibration can notify you of a misalignment within the sheaves or shaft. Proper alignment is vital!
Misalignment contributes to approximately 1/3 of all bearing failures.
Misalignments can indicate the following possible:
- Seal failures
- Bearing failures
- Coupling failures
- Energy loss
- Excessive heat
- Bent shafts
- Electrical failure within a motor due to overload
