We’re here to signpost you on the most efficient and safest way to operate. One thing we always recommend is installing laser alignment. Misaligned shafts are recognised as one of the biggest contributors to plant breakdowns.
For example, when direct drive refrigeration compressors coupled to drive motors are incorrectly aligned, this can result in failure of both the drive motors and compressors. This misalignment causes malfunction of the shaft seal, which would mean the release of refrigerant and oil.
Furthermore, if your plant contains a source of ammonia and your laser is misaligned, this could result in the loss of cooling and require evacuation of your plant rooms, impacting the controlled temperature and your production facilities.
