Shaft Alignment - Rim and Face Method
Event Details
Learn to:
Explain the costly effects of misalignment
Identify the symptoms of misaligned rotating equipment
Diagnose and solve soft foot and eccentric runout problems
Set up dial indicators for rim and face alignment work
Take accurate alignment readings and measurements
Use simple graphing and formulas to analyze the readings taken
Make changed to vertical shims taking thermal growth offsets into account
Complete successful horizontal moves and confirm final alignment
Is the correct alignment of rotating equipment a critical reliability factor in your plant? Would improved or refreshed skills in rim and face shaft alignment methods help with maintenance team confidence and performance?
Who should attend?
Plant mechanics, millwrights and maintenance engineers are responsible for the health and reliability of rotating equipment. In this course, participants will learn how to accurately align direct coupled machine shafts.
This 2-day course begins with the fundamental principles behind shaft to shaft alignment and concludes with students conducting a series of alignment exercises using conventional alignment tools. Two methods will be covered: straight edge alignment, and rim and face alignment. The course is taught hands-on with standard alignment tools, demonstration models, and simulation software.
Why Align?
Objective: List consequences from failure to align
Activity: Identify machine components that have failed due to misalignment
Alignment Theory
Objective: Describe the common types of shaft misalignment
Activity: Identify parallel offset and angularity
Preparing For Alignment
Objective: List steps to prepare for a shaft re-alignment
Activity: Use feeler gauges and dial indicators to test for irregular machine status
Measuring Soft Foot
Objective: Detect and correct soft foot conditions
Activity: Use magnetic base with dial indicator
Detecting Runout
Objective: Detect shaft and coupling runout conditions
Activity: Use magnetic base with dial indicator
Straight Edge Techniques
Objective: Use basic tools to achieve rough alignment
Activity: Complete a hands-on rough alignment using straight edge techniques
Rim and Face Instruments
Objective: Setup brackets and dials for rim and face alignment
Activity: Use the instruments on hand at your plant to take measurements
Rim and Dial Techniques
Objective: Demonstrate correct rim and face alignment routines
Activity: Complete two computer simulated and two hands-on alignment jobs
Horizontal and Vertical Moves
Objective: Shim and make horizontal moves
Activity: Use shims and dials for both horizontal and vertical moves
Alignment Task - Data Sheet
Objective: Record and track data on a job aid
Activity: Calculate and plot offsets for bang-on verification
