Dynamic Balancing

Reduce Energy Usage

with a lower 'heavy spot', there is a reduction in radial forces, thus often there is often less loading on the motor following balancing of an asset.

Increased Safety

by reducing structural and mechanical stresses, the machine is less likely to catastrophically fail (and eject material), and noise levels are usually reduced significantly.

Extend Bearing Life

by reducing radial loading on the bearings, their life can typically be extended further than if the asset was to be left out of balance.

Why choose PFE Limited?

As a family owned business, we 'go the extra mile' for our service quality, we don't believe in compromising service quality for cost or time. Our engineers have extensive experience, and training in services offered, and our reports are tailor made for your requirements. Using this extensive experience, we ensure we can balance your asset the best method possible, as low as possible. We utilise the latest technology on the market for our services.

Situ Balancing

If requirements are met, it is possible to balance a lot of assets in-situ, preventing significant downtime and costs of removal of the rotating element.

To situ balance, there must be control of the asset, including a safe place to fully isolate. There must also be access to one or two correction planes (depending on the type of imbalance), sufficient to allow welding equipment or a hand-drill in. Finally, there must be a means to correct the imbalance (i.e. some assets may require on site welding technicians, some may be bolted-on)

Workshop Balancing

If the rotating element is being removed, it can be balanced in our workshop balancing machine, located in our Prenton (Wirral) workshop.

Our machine/s can balance anywhere from 1kg all the way to 2200kg, and a variety of lengths, configurations, rotor types. Please contact us if you are unsure whether your rotor can be balanced in our workshop  machine
