Fan Balancing

Approximately half of rotating equipment failures comes from a misaligned or unbalanced conditions. Excessive vibration will cause bearings, shafts, or support structures to fail earlier than intended. Fan imbalance is typically caused by:

1. Wear on fan blades due to abrasives
2. The buildup of dirt or stock on the blades
3. Loose hub to shaft fits
4. Temperature differentials in the fan housing or on the shaft
5. Loss of a balancing weight
