Parts & Repairs
Few aftermarket suppliers offer true operating speed balancing and none have EthosEnergy’s expertise or our decades of experience. Our analyses can improve the reliability of your rotating equipment by minimizing the residual unbalance, diagnosing existing instabilities and bearing system, evaluating the margin of safety and improving a rotor’s overall dynamic behavior.
With an OpSpeed™ Balance, our customers receive more than a rotor with a high degree of balance. They gain in-depth knowledge of their rotor’s individual characteristics, otherwise known as the rotor ‘signature’. Our dedicated OpSpeed bunker has the capacity to meet virtually any high-speed balancing specification. We speed-test equipment in a near-perfect vacuum, provide complete documentation and prepare rotors for immediate installation or long-term storage.
With an EthosEnergy OpSpeed Balance our customers may realize the following benefits:
- Target balance of just 1.8 mm/sec (0-peak) velocity. This means a smoother running rotor, increased bearing and seal life and longer periods between scheduled maintenance
- Final verification of satisfactory running condition after repair – so you can be sure of rotor reliability
- Reduce the amplitude of the rotor’s critical speeds which eliminates potential startup problems
- Complete documentation: exact information about your rotor’s individual characteristics, its balance “signature”
