Fixturlaser Pump Alignment Systems for Industry


Welcome to Pump Alignment.co.uk from Monition Ltd - Fixturlaser UK

 

Fixturlaser's lastest Pump Shaft Alignment System has been awarded a Silver Product of the Year Distinction by Plant Engineering

The alignment of pump shaft couplings and motor drive shafts is critical to ensure efficient running of plant items and to reduce the risk of plant breakdowns in service.

 

The misalignment of pump and driveshafts creates eccentric vibration forces which lead to the premature wear of bearings, seals and couplings. It is a recognised statistic that over 50% of plant failures are a result of misalignment.

 

Monition Ltd – Fixturlaser UK offer a number of powerful, easy-to-operate laser alignment systems specifically designed for conducting fast, precision pump shaft coupling alignment in the field. In addition to the alignment of horizontal and vertically mounted pumps and drives, Fixturlaser’s powerful XA system can upgraded to conduct alignment of offset drives and cardan shafts.

Benefits of Laser Shaft Alignment for Pumps:

  • Increased meantime between failures
  • Reduced vibration levels
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Reduced maintenance costs Improved plant safety
  • Increased production quantity & quality

 

The Fixturlaser XA System - THE Professional Pump Alignment System

 

Fixturlaser's professional pump alignment system - the Fixturlaser XA

 

The express laser shaft alignment system, Fixturlaser XA, in addition to standard capabilities to perform horizontal pump alignment, vertical pump alignment, and soft foot checking, is available with applications for the more demanding alignment situations, including offset (cardan Shaft) alignment, machine train alignment, and alignment of machines that are subject to dynamic forces including vibration and thermal growth.


Why Precision Pump Shaft Alignment is Critical

Misaligned machines, such as Pumps and Motors, result in vibrations and premature wear of bearings, seals and couplings. Machines with rotating shafts are designed to run under optimal conditions. Misalignment will lead to harmful forces deteriorating plant machine performance.


Types of Pump Shaft Misalignment

There are two types of pump shaft misalignment, parallel and angular misalignment. With parallel misalignment, the centre lines of both shafts are parallel but they are offset. With angular misalignment, the shafts are at an angle to each other.

Shaft Alignment - Aligned <<<>>> Shaft Alignment - Misaligned

Pump Alignment - Aligned Correctly Pump Alignment - Misaligned

 

The parallel misalignment can be further divided up in horizontal and vertical misalignment. Horizontal misalignment is misalignment of the pump shafts in the horizontal plane and vertical misalignment is misalignment of the shafts in the vertical plane. Similar, angular misalignment can be divided up in horizontal and vertical misalignment.

 

Parallel vertical Shaft Misalignment is where the motor shaft is moved vertically away from the pump shaft, but both shafts are still in the same vertical plane and parallel.

 

Angular horizontal Shaft Misalignment is where the motor shaft is under an angle with the pump shaft but both shafts are still in the same horizontal plane.

 

Errors of alignment can be caused by parallel misalignment, angular misalignment or a combination of the two. The complexity of calculating and correcting misalignment across these planes makes the use of a laser alignment system critical, for the precision alignment of pumps.
