Fan Balancing

Fan balancing can minimize a host of problems.  All wheels manufactured or repaired by ProcessBarron are balanced in accordance with A.N.S.I. S 2.19 using a quality grade of G6.3 (G2.5 or G1 grade upon request), and the IRD Mechanalysis 290T Balancing Instrument Operating Manual. 

In-shop fan balancing is conducted at operating speeds of approximately 240-300 RPM, with the IRD computer analyzer compensating for the actual operating speed of the industrial fan. Our service team will balance your fan wheel to the correct manufacturer's tolerance specification, and provide a Certified Wheel Balance Report.

Fan Vibration Analysis

Fan vibration problems can be a result of increased production requirements or build up of material on the impeller during normal use.  These problems may cause industrial fans to become subject to increased fan vibration and imbalance if bearings, shafts or support structures are poorly designed or insufficient to handle the operating environment.

If unchecked, this can lead to catastrophic fan failure and costly outages. Our fan vibration analysis team provides comprehensive fan vibration analysis to determine the best solution to achieve maximum fan efficiency and stability.

Fan Performance Optimization

ProcessBarron's industrial fan service department performs computerized balancing services to ensure the proper working condition of your centrifugal fan and supporting system hardware.  Our team can also evaluate your production requirements and recommend design changes or fan efficiency upgrade solutions.
