Mass imbalance is the most common cause of high vibrations in the fans and other rotating equipment. New manufactured fans are factory balanced within acceptable levels, however the level of imbalance can change (worsen) due to many reasons like:
Shipment and installation induced imbalance
Repair of fan blades (welding of broken or cracked blades)
Accumulation of dust and other deposits from process flow on fan blades
Maintenance actions, like changing bearings, or cleaning
Erosion, corrosion and wear of fan blades
Attempt of balancing the fan by unqualified person
Field Balancing of rotating assemblies has several significant advantages:
The rotor or fan impeller is balanced in its own bearings.
The rotor or fan impeller is balanced at normal operating speed and laod.
No need for tear down (disassembly) of rotor or fan impeller to sending a shop for balancing.
Downtime is greatly reduced.
