Vibration analysis services for mining machinery

Implementing vibration analysis services can save time and money by detecting faults in machinery at an early stage, eliminating the risk of future breakdowns.

Faults detected through vibration analysis include misalignment, looseness, imbalance, bent or cracked shafts, flow-related resonance, motor electrical faults, bad belts, lack of lubrication, bearing defects, and resonance.

Correcting shaft misalignment using laser guidance

It can often be difficult to align machinery correctly, as misaligned drives and shafts in rotating equipment can cause excess vibration, leading to unnecessary damage and bearing failure. The company can also cause premature seal and coupling failures.

Luehr Filter offers a laser alignment services that allows clients to ensure safe operation of its machinery, and maximise the life of itsequipment.

In-situ dynamic balancing services

A variety of issues can cause rotor imbalance, such as deposit build-up, distortion, or corrosion.

Imbalance can be a costly and time-consuming problem, as machinery usually needs to be disassembled, transported and reassembled to resolve the problem. Luehr Filter offers in-situ dynamic balancing, which minimises downtime and prolongs the service life of the equipment.

By taking the appropriate readings and adding the necessary counterweights, Luehr Filter can dramatically reduce vibration levels, decrease machinery downtime, and improve system efficiency.
