Aligning pumps Startseite 9 Areas of application 9 Aligning pumps Optimal pump balancing When installing and maintaining pumps, they must be precisely aligned both with regard to space and at the coupling with the powering motor to ensure proper operation. This filling of vertical gaps brings many advantages. Alignment of pumps with shims Often, pump adjustment is a matter of shaft alignment. If there is an offset between the two shafts, this must be compensated for. To compensate for a parallel offset – i.e. a difference in height – shims are used to underlay the motor. Standard U-shaped shims are usually used for parallel compensation. For this purpose, we offer various systems that can be used individually or as assorted assembly sets. Standard systems are available both as solid sheets and as edge-bonded parts. Our underlay shims in the determined thickness can be slid directly under the machine base to be compensated for to bridge the vertical offset. Advantages of aligned pumps Avoidance of increased wear Increasing the service life of the system Reduction of energy consumption during downtimes Minimizing repair costs Reduction of the risk of production downtime Shims for pump alignment Depending on the application and the requirements of the different plants, we can provide you with standard shims as well as individual shims and underlays according to technical drawings. These are available in all common materials as solid sheets, but also as flat-bonded laminated sheet parts. peel-plate vario-plate single-plate Edge-bonded plates Send us your request now.
