Book Description: DOUBLE MACHINERY LIFE and SLASH MAINTENANCE COSTS! Vibration: it stunts machinery life, forces expensive downtime, boosts energy costs, and triggers dangerous breakdowns. The solution? The unmatched balancing expertise in Victor Wowk's Machinery Vibration: Balancing--the one tool you need to measure, isolate, and reduce virtually any rotating component's vibration, resonance, or misalignment problem. Use it to: Balance everything from ceiling fans to turbine engines--even nonrotating parts like engine pistons; Select and apply balancing sensors and systems for single-plane and two-plane balancing, 4-rin method without phase, static-couple method, and overhung and flexible-rotor balancing; Balance in the shop and out on site--even when disassemble isn't an option; Get top results from such vibration transducers as accelerometers, velocity pickups and proximity probes; Reduce vibration even when balancing doesn't work.
