Rotating Equipment


As mechanical devices operate, heat is generated. Forces such as friction, misalignment and improper belt tension cause excessive heating.

Uneven Heating Caused
by Misalignment

Defective Pillow
Block Bearing

Shaft Bearing

What Can Be Detected:

  • Misalignment of coupled equipment
  • Over/under lubrication of bearings
  • Over/under tension of belted systems
  • Excessive friction
  • Defective Equipment


  • Quickly locate misaligned coupled equipment
  • Increase equipment reliability and life
  • Increase production and efficiency while saving energy
  • Increase quality of product
  • Minimize downtime by planning the required manpower and materials before shutdown
  • Improve worker productivity and morale by correcting potential problems proactively
