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
