Gene Vogel
EASA Pump & Vibration Specialist

As with most other machines commonly repaired in EASA service centers, dynamic balancing on pump impellers is an important concern. Excessive imbalance imparts forces on bearings, reducing their lives and subjecting machine mountings to vibratory energy that deteriorates foundations.

Pump rotors are quite different than more familiar electric motor rotors from a dynamic balance perspective. The mass of an electric motor rotor is between the bearings, and the rotors are longer than their diameters. Many pump impellers are mounted in an overhung configuration, and the impellers will likely be narrower than their diameters. Narrow components may require special rules for allocating allowable residual imbalance (per ISO 21940-11), and special balancing techniques may be needed for efficient balancing in the balancing machine.
