Shaft Alignment Handbook (3rd Edition)

File Size: 22.41 Mb

Many of the material conveniences taken for granted in today’s society have been made possible by the numerous rotating machinery systems located in every part of the world. Virtually everything we use or consume has somehow been produced or touched in some way by rotating equipment. The multitude of industrial facilities that generate our electricity, extract and deliver our fossil fuels, manufacture our chemicals, produce the food we eat, provide our transportation, furnish the clothing we wear, mine and refine metals, manufacture the paper and printing products used for books, require millions of pieces of rotating machinery to create all the products we use.

It makes good sense to keep the motors, pumps, gears, turbines, fans, diesels, and compressors running for long periods of time to prevent financial losses due to decreased production and overhaul costs. Repair or replacement of this equipment is expensive and the loss of revenue when this machinery is is not in operation can spell the difference between continued prosperity or financial disaster for any company. Keeping these machines running requires a thorough understanding their design and operating envelope, careful attention during their installation and overhauls, the faculty to prevent or predict imminent failures, and the expertise to modify and enhance existing hardware to extend its operating lifespan. In the past 30 years, easily half of the rotating equipment problems I have experienced had something to do with misaligned shafts. Additionally, operating rotating equipment under misalignment conditions can be dangerous. I have seen a coupling burst apart on a 500 hp, 3600 rpm process pump that literally sheared a 10 in. pipe in half and coupling pieces landed 400 yards away from its point of origin. Keep in mind that rotor speeds above 100,000 rpm and drivers pushing 60,000ΓΎ hp are now commonplace.
