Shaft Alignment

A major part of keeping equipment running smoothly involves regular maintenance and upkeep and ensuring that the machinery is kept lubricated and properly aligned. When shafts or belts on rotating equipment are
misaligned, the risk of costly, unplanned machine downtime rises dramatically. Misalignment also damages seals and couplings. Lubrication problems often can be traced to seals that have been compromised by shaft or belt misalignment. Simply replacing a seal will not stop future seal failure and associated loss of lubricant — only correcting the misalignment will solve the problem. Failure to align the shafts or belts properly will increase the amount of stress on the units, resulting in a higher energy consumption
