An ‘alignment free’ pump

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017 von admin

It is imperative that pumping systems are designed and operated in a way that reduces the amount of harmful stress placed on components. One area that has been difficult to achieve and maintain is shaft alignment. Failure to properly align a pump’s mating shafts will eventually lead to challenges associated with shaft fatigue and failure, resulting in compromised pumping-system uptime, reliability and safety. This can then result in costly maintenance or even knock the pump out of service and halt production.

Focused on this problem, Blackmer developed GNX Series sliding vane pumps, which are called by the manufacturer “industry’s first alignment-free”. It is a reduced-speed pump for use in both portable and stationary applications.

Presse_RS5_255x172pxThe new RS5 sensor for the proven measurement system Optalign Smart RS introduces unique features to the mid-range shaft alignment segment. Smarter and faster, the new sensor also scores high in terms of usability. The XL HD PSD detector size, combined with the powerful ExtendRange functionality makes the measurement range virtually unlimited. In real terms, this means that large misalignments can even be measured over long distances. With the 5-axis technology, it is also the only sensor in this segment to offer Concurrent Live Move for machine corrections. This enables live monitoring of horizontal and vertical machine corrections at the same time, with the sensor at any rotational shaft position.
