Reduced vibration and noise

Symptoms of several possible problems

Excessive vibration and noise levels associated with industrial pumps are a major concern – for optimum performance, as well as to comply with existing regulations.

Often the root cause of excessive vibration and noise levels is related to poor shaft alignment, inadequate lubrication, poor mounting procedures, improper bearing arrangements, or inefficient cooling. Whatever the cause, high vibration levels increase friction, energy consumption and component wear, often leading to:
  • Premature equipment failures
  • Costly maintenance
  • Unplanned downtime
  • Production losses
