In-Situ Balancing in High-Speed Separators: Achieving Optimal Vibration Levels and Noise Reduction

Traditional Balancing Limitations

Previously, separator manufacturing plants used technology that required individual components of the separator to be balanced on specialized balancing machines. This posed challenges in achieving acceptable vibration levels for the assembled machines. Due to the high rotation frequencies of separator rotors, even slight manufacturing and assembly errors could lead to elevated imbalance levels.

Transition to Assembled Balancing

Our team introduced a new balancing device that enabled the final balancing of assembled separators at their operating rotation frequency. This transition opened up the possibility of maintaining residual vibrations within the range of 0.5 - 0.7 mm/s at rotation speeds of 4500 - 9000 rpm.


Alongside the primary achievement of reducing vibrations, an benefit was the significant reduction in noise levels. This improvement has further enhanced the market competitiveness of these separators.


The shift to in-situ balancing of assembled separators at operational rotation frequencies has not only optimized vibration levels but has also reduced noise, thereby offering a dual advantage. This case serves as a testament to the effectiveness of modern balancing techniques in addressing the challenges posed by high-speed machinery.
