We balance a large part of our transport screws dynamically.
Obviously, we can also balance a variety of other products such as impellers. Check with us so we can see if we can help.
To our transport screws a balancing machine that can handle up 8 meter long object with a diameter of 1400 mm is required. These are just a few in Sweden and one is with us!
Transport Screws have a long, narrow shape and can weigh several tons. They should rotate at up to 400 rpm, and requires careful balancing. It is great kinetic energy that must be managed and the screw’s operation and support would in case of imbalance quickly deteriorate. And moreover, the risk of fatigue would increase substantially. If you also know that the screws are often assembled to form long unbroken chains with total lengths up to 30 meters, you understand why we perform balancing!
