IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE STARTING ALIGNMENT
 MAKE SURE THAT RUNOUT AT THE SHAFT AS WELL AS COUPLING IS LESS THAN 0.05 mm ON
BOTH THE MACHINES . SEE FIGURE
RUNOUT SHOULD NOT EXCEED 0.05 MM
 DECIDE WHICH MACHINE WILL BE KEPT STATIOARY AND WHICH ONE WILL BE MOVED .
GENERALLY, FOR A MOTOR PUMP COMBINATION , PUMP IS KEPT STATIOARY ,FOR A TURBINE
PUMP COMBINATION , TURBINE IS KEPT STATIONARY.
 CHECK FOR RUSTY OR BROKEN SHIMS/TOO MANY SHIMS UNDER THE SUPPORT LEGS .NUMBER
OF SHIMS SHOULD NOT EXCEED FOUR.
 MAKE PROVISION FOR MOVING THE MACHINERY ( BOTH SIDEWISE AND UPDOWN MOTION ) FOR
SIDEWISE MOTION , USING JACK BOLTS IS THE PREFERRED METHOD. FOR UP-DOWN MOTION ,
WEDGING AT THE APPROPRIATE PLACE IS DONE AND THEN SHIMS ARE KEPT BELOW THE LEGS.
ALIGNMENT TOLERANCES
ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE (TAKING ALIGNMENT READINGS) – STEP NO. : 1
 DIAL POINTER SHOULD PREFRABLY BE KEPT ON THE MACINE TO BE MOVED.
 THE SUM TOTAL OF BOTH SIDE READINGS SHOULD BE SAME AS SUM TOTAL OF TOP BOTTOM
READINGS. IN ACTUAL PRACTICE ,WE CAN ALLOW A DIFFERENCE OF ABOUT 15%. THIS RULE IS
CALLED VALIDITY RULE.
SUM TOTAL OF SIDE READINGS = 0.15 + 0.25 = 0.40
SUM TOTAL OF TOP BOTTOM READINGS = 0.00 + 0.36 = 0.36
DIFFERENCE = 0.40 – 0.36 = 0.04
THIS DIFFERENCE SHOULD BE LESS THAN 15 %
15 % OF 0.40 = 0.06
THUS DIFFERENCE IS LESS THAN 15 %. HENCE ALIGNMENT READING IS VALID.
IMPORTANT :
ALIGNMENT CORRECTION SHOULD BE ATTEMPTED ONLY WHEN
SUM TOTAL OF SIDE READINGS AND TOP BOTTOM READINGS ARE
MATCHING WITHIN 15 % AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE EXAMPLE.
0.00
0.36
0.15 0.25

WHAT CHECKS TO DO IF ALIGNMENT READINGS ARE FOUND INVALID :
 CHECK THE CLAMP FOR LOOSENESS. IF FOUND LOOSE, TIGHTEN.
 CHECK THE DIAL POINTER IS LEAVING CONTACT DURING ROTATION. IF SO, DO ROUGH
ALIGNMENT WITH STRAIGHT EDGE FIRST.
 CHECK THE COUPLING FOR ECCENTRICITY / ELLIPTICITY AND SHAFT FOR RUNOUT. RECTIFY,
AND ROTATE BOTH SHAFTS TOGETHER.
IF STILL ALIGNMENT READINGS ARE FOUND INVALID, IT MEANS THAT THERE IS SAG IN THE DIAL
CLAMP.
12 O’CLOCK
6 O’CLOCK
ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 1
SAG MEASUREMENT AND CORRECTION
IMPORTANT :
THIS STEP IS TO BE CARRIED OUT ONLY IF THE SUM TOTAL OF SIDE READINGS
IS NOT MATCHING WITH THE SUM TOTAL OF TOP-BOTTOM READINGS.
 WHAT IS SAG ? SEE FIGURE
 WHEN DIAL IS AT 12 O’CLOCK POSITION, THE CLAMP BENDS TOWARDS THE COUPLING.
 WHEN THE DIAL IS AT 6 O’CLOCK POSITION THE CLAMP BENDS AWAY FROM THE COUPLING.
 THIS MOVEMENT OF CLAMP CAUSES CHANGE IN DIAL READINGS. DUE TO THIS CHANGE, SUM
TOTAL OF TOP-BOTTOM READINGS DOES NOT MATCH WITH SUM TOTAL OF SIDE READINGS.
THIS EFFECT IS CALLED SAG.
0.00
+ 0.16
+ 0.12 + 0.12
FOR EXAMPLE ALIGNMENT READING IS
0.00
- 0.08
+ 0.08
+ 0.16
+ 0.12 + 0.12
ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 2
 HOW TO REMOVE SAG ERROR
FROM THE ALIGNMENT READINGS :
 MEASURE THE VALUE OF
SAG WITH THE HELP OF
SAG MEASUREMENT
SETUP AS SHOWN IN FIGURE.
THIS SAG VALUE WILL BE NEGATIVE.
 ADD THE SAG VALUE TO THE ALIGNMENT READINGS
AS SHOWN IN THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE.
 AS WE CAN SEE,SUM TOTAL OF TOP-BOTTOM READINGS
& SIDE READINGS IS NOT MATCHING. ALL THREE CHECKS,
GIVEN IN STEP NO.:1 HAVE BEEN DONE. STILL DIFFERENCE IS COMING
DIAL READINGS FROM THE SAG MEASUREMENT SETUP ARE AS FOLLOWS.
IT MEANS THERE IS SAG OF 0.08 MM.
 THIS SAG VALUE WILL BE ADDED TO THE ALIGNMENT
READING OF 12 O’CLOCK POSITION AFTER CHANGING
THE SIGN FROM MINUS TO PLUS. MODIFIED READING
IS AS FOLLOWS :
 NOW, SUM TOTAL OF SIDE READINGS AND TOP BOTTOM READINGS
IS MATCHING. NOW, WE CAN PROCEED TO STEP NO. : 3 OF ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE.
ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 3
CALCULATING MACHINERY MOVEMENT
IMPORTANT :
FOR BEST RESULTS ,RADIAL AND AXIAL ALIGNMENT CORRECTIONS SHOULD
BE DONE TOGETHER. A TABLE FOR THIS PURPOSE IS SHOWN AS FOLLOWS :
AMOUNT OF SHIMS REQUIRED AT
FRONT LEG REAR LEG
FOR RADIAL ALIGNMENT A mm A mm
FOR AXIAL ALIGNMENT B mm C mm
FOR TOTAL ALIGNMENT CORRECTION A + B mm A + C mm
ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 3A
CORRECTING RADIAL MISALIGNMENT
RADIAL CORRECTION VALUE IS HALF OF THE TOTAL INDICATOR READING.
FOR EXAMPLE :
 DIAL IS CLAMPED ON PUMP COUPLING AND POINTER IS ON MOTOR COUPLING.
 DIAL IS SET TO ZERO AT 12 O’CLOCK POSITION.
 DIAL IS READING +0.20 mm AT 6 O’CLOCK POSITION.
 THIS MEANS THAT MOTOR SHAFT IS DOWN ( + SIGN MEANS DIAL POINTER HAS GOT
COMPRESSED.)
 THUS MOTOR SHAFT WILL HAVE TO BE LIFTED UP BY +0.20/2 = 0.10 mm . THAT IS, SHIMMING OF
0.10 mm IS REQUIRED AT ALL THE FOUR LEGS.
IMPORTANT :
FOR RADIAL MISALIGNMENT CORRECTION , THE VALUE OF SHIMMING
REQUIRED WILL BE SAME FOR ALL THE FOUR LEGS, AS WE SAW IN
THE ABOVE EXAMPLE.
0.00
+ 0.20
ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 3B
CORRECTING AXIAL MISALIGNMENT
SEE FIGURE :
 D = DIAMETER ON WHICH THE DIAL IS MOVING. ( APPROX. EQUAL TOCOUPLIND DIAMETER).
 L1 = DIAMETER AT FRONT LEG FROM MOTOR COUPLING.
 L2 = DISTANCE AT BACK LEG FROM THE MOTOR COUPLING.
SHIMING REQUIRED AT FRONT / BACK LEG = L1 OR L2 x DIAL READING / D
EXAMPLE :
 DIAMETER OF DIAL TRAVEL D = 100 mm
 DISTANCE OF FRONT LEG TO COUPLING L1 = 200 mm
 DISTANCE OF BACK LEG TO COUPLING L2 = 400 mm
NOW, DIAL IS SET TO ZERO AT 12 O’CLOCK POSITION. DIAL READS + 0.30 AT 6 O’CLOCK
POSITION
THIS MEANS THAT TOP GAP BETWEEN COUPLINGS IS MORE THAN BOTTOM GAP (+ SIGN MEANS
DIAL POINTER HAS GOT COMPRESSED)
0.00
+ 0.30
D
L1
ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 3B
CORRECTING AXIAL MISALIGNMENT
SEE FIGURE :
 THUS MOTOR SHAFT WILL HAVE TO BE LIFTED UP.
 SHIMING REQUIRED AT FRONT LEG = L1 x DIAL READING / D
= 200 x 0.30 / 100 = 0.60 mm
 SHIMING REQUIRED AT BACK LEG = L2 x DIAL READING / D
= 400 x 0.30 / 100 = 1.20 mm
IMPORTANT :
FOR AXIAL MISALIGNMENT CORRECTION , THE AMOUNT OF SHIMS
REQUIRED TO BE ADDED OR REMOVED IS DIFFERENT FOR THE FRONT LEGS
AND BACK LEGS.
ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 3C
CORRECTING TOTAL MISALIGNMENT
AS PER OUR EXAMPLE, THE TOP BOTTOM READINGS ARE :
SHIMING REQUIRED FOR RADIAL & AXIAL MISALIGNMENTS RESPECTIVELY HAVE BEEN CALCULATED
ON THE PREVIOUS SLIDES. THE TOTAL SHIMING REQUIRED IS CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS :
THUS, IN ORDER TO DO TOTAL (RADIAL + AXIAL ) ALIGNMENT, PUT SHIMS OF 0.70 mm IN FRONT LEG
AND 1.3 mm IN BACK LEG OF MOTOR IN OUR EXAMPLE.
0.00
0.20 mm
R
0.00
0.30 mm
A
AMOUNT OF SHIMS REQUIRED IN
FRONT LEG REAR LEG
TO CORRECT RADIAL ALIGNMENT + 0.10 mm + 0.10 mm
TO CORRECT AXIAL ALIGNMENT + 0.60 mm + 1.20 mm
TOTAL ALIGNMENT CORRECTION 0.10 + 0.60 = 0.70 mm 0.10 + 1.20 = 1.3 mm
ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 4
MOVING THE MACHINERY
 FOR TOP-BOTTOM MOVEMENT SHIMS ARE ADDED OR REMOVED FROM BELOW THE FEET OF THE
MACHINE TO BE MOVED. FOR THIS PURPOSE, THE MACHINE IS LIFTED UP BY WEDGING, AND
THEN SHIMS ARE ADDED OR REMOVED.
 FOR SIDE WISE MOVEMENT, USING JACKBOLTS IS THE PREFERRED METHOD. A LIGHT HAMMER
CAN ALSO BE USED ON SMALL MACHINES. THE MOVEMENT SHOULD BE CLOSELY MONIORED
BY TWO DIAL GAUGES, AS SHOWN IN THE FIGURE.
IMPORTANT :
AFTER MAKING THE REQUIRED MOVEMENT, ONE FINAL ALIGNMENT READING
SHOULD BE TAKEN.
CONCLUSION
WHICH ALIGNMENT TO DO FIRST : TOP-BOTTOM OR SIDE WISE ALIGNMENT
 WE HAVE TO SEE THAT IT IS VERY CONVENIENT TO DO RADIAL AND AXIAL ALIGNMENT
CORRECTION TOGATHER.
 HENCE, WE CAN SAY THAT ULTIMATELY THERE ARE ONLY TWO TYPES OF MISALIGNMENTS –
TOP-BOTTOM (RADIAL + AXIAL) MISALIGNMENT AND SIDE WISE (RADIAL + AXIAL) MISALIGNMENT.
 FOR BEST RESULTS TOP-BOTTOM ALIGNMENT SHOULD BE DONE FIRST, FOLLOWED BY SIDE
WISE ALIGNMENT. THE REASON IS THAT IF YOU DO SIDE WISE ALIGNMENT FIRST, THEN WHILE
DOING TOP-BOTTOM ALIGNMENT, SIDE WISE ALIGNMENT WILL AGAIN GET DISTURBED.
 HOW EVER, IF DURING STEP NO. : 1 (TAKING ALIGNMENT READINGS) IT IS FOUND THAT SIDE
WISE MISALIGNMENT IS VERY LARGE AS COMPARE TO TOP-BOTTOM MISALGNMENT, THEN
ROUGH ALIGNMENT (OF SIDE WISE) SHOULD BE DONE FIRST. AFTER THAT FINAL TOP-BOTTOM
ALIGNMENT AND THEN FINAL SIDE WISE ALIGNMENT SHOULD BE DONE.
5.REMOVE COUPLING GAURDS AND COUPLING SPOOL PIECE IF NECESSARY.MEASURE
THE SHAFT AND COUPLING HUB RUN OUT ON BOTH UNITS. INSPECT COUPLING FOR
ANY DAMAGE OR WORN PARTS. KEEP TRACK OF THE COUPLIG PARTS AND LABEL
THEM IF NECESSARY.IF EQUIPMENT IS GOING TO BE REMOVED FOR SERVICING,
MAKE PUNCH MARKS ON CASING AND BASEPLATE AS A REFERENCE DURING
REINSTALLATION.
6.CHECK FOR SOFT FOOT,CASING OR FRAME WARPAGE, EXCESSIVE STATIC PIPING OR
CONDUIT FORCES,DAMAGED OR RUSTY SHIMS, LOOSE FOUNDATION BOLTS. ETC.
CORRECT ANY OF THE POTENTIAL PROBLEM AREAS.
7. TAKE AND RECORD A SET OF ALIGNMENT READINGS.
8.CALCULATE AND PERFORM THE NECESSARY AXIAL , VERTICAL AND HORIZONTALS
MOVE. RECHECK ALIGNMET, CALCULATE AND MOVE UNTILL EQUIPMENT IS WITHIN
ACCEPTABLE ALIGNMENT TOLERANCES.TORQUE FOUNDATION BOLTS TO REQURED
VALUES. RCORD FINAL ALIGNMENT READINGS.

Alignment

  • 1. IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE STARTING ALIGNMENT  MAKE SURE THAT RUNOUT AT THE SHAFT AS WELL AS COUPLING IS LESS THAN 0.05 mm ON BOTH THE MACHINES . SEE FIGURE RUNOUT SHOULD NOT EXCEED 0.05 MM  DECIDE WHICH MACHINE WILL BE KEPT STATIOARY AND WHICH ONE WILL BE MOVED . GENERALLY, FOR A MOTOR PUMP COMBINATION , PUMP IS KEPT STATIOARY ,FOR A TURBINE PUMP COMBINATION , TURBINE IS KEPT STATIONARY.  CHECK FOR RUSTY OR BROKEN SHIMS/TOO MANY SHIMS UNDER THE SUPPORT LEGS .NUMBER OF SHIMS SHOULD NOT EXCEED FOUR.  MAKE PROVISION FOR MOVING THE MACHINERY ( BOTH SIDEWISE AND UPDOWN MOTION ) FOR SIDEWISE MOTION , USING JACK BOLTS IS THE PREFERRED METHOD. FOR UP-DOWN MOTION , WEDGING AT THE APPROPRIATE PLACE IS DONE AND THEN SHIMS ARE KEPT BELOW THE LEGS.
  • 3. ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE (TAKING ALIGNMENT READINGS) – STEP NO. : 1  DIAL POINTER SHOULD PREFRABLY BE KEPT ON THE MACINE TO BE MOVED.  THE SUM TOTAL OF BOTH SIDE READINGS SHOULD BE SAME AS SUM TOTAL OF TOP BOTTOM READINGS. IN ACTUAL PRACTICE ,WE CAN ALLOW A DIFFERENCE OF ABOUT 15%. THIS RULE IS CALLED VALIDITY RULE. SUM TOTAL OF SIDE READINGS = 0.15 + 0.25 = 0.40 SUM TOTAL OF TOP BOTTOM READINGS = 0.00 + 0.36 = 0.36 DIFFERENCE = 0.40 – 0.36 = 0.04 THIS DIFFERENCE SHOULD BE LESS THAN 15 % 15 % OF 0.40 = 0.06 THUS DIFFERENCE IS LESS THAN 15 %. HENCE ALIGNMENT READING IS VALID. IMPORTANT : ALIGNMENT CORRECTION SHOULD BE ATTEMPTED ONLY WHEN SUM TOTAL OF SIDE READINGS AND TOP BOTTOM READINGS ARE MATCHING WITHIN 15 % AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE EXAMPLE. 0.00 0.36 0.15 0.25 RFOR EXAMPLE D L1 L2
  • 4. WHAT CHECKS TO DO IF ALIGNMENT READINGS ARE FOUND INVALID :  CHECK THE CLAMP FOR LOOSENESS. IF FOUND LOOSE, TIGHTEN.  CHECK THE DIAL POINTER IS LEAVING CONTACT DURING ROTATION. IF SO, DO ROUGH ALIGNMENT WITH STRAIGHT EDGE FIRST.  CHECK THE COUPLING FOR ECCENTRICITY / ELLIPTICITY AND SHAFT FOR RUNOUT. RECTIFY, AND ROTATE BOTH SHAFTS TOGETHER. IF STILL ALIGNMENT READINGS ARE FOUND INVALID, IT MEANS THAT THERE IS SAG IN THE DIAL CLAMP.
  • 5. 12 O’CLOCK 6 O’CLOCK ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 1 SAG MEASUREMENT AND CORRECTION IMPORTANT : THIS STEP IS TO BE CARRIED OUT ONLY IF THE SUM TOTAL OF SIDE READINGS IS NOT MATCHING WITH THE SUM TOTAL OF TOP-BOTTOM READINGS.  WHAT IS SAG ? SEE FIGURE  WHEN DIAL IS AT 12 O’CLOCK POSITION, THE CLAMP BENDS TOWARDS THE COUPLING.  WHEN THE DIAL IS AT 6 O’CLOCK POSITION THE CLAMP BENDS AWAY FROM THE COUPLING.  THIS MOVEMENT OF CLAMP CAUSES CHANGE IN DIAL READINGS. DUE TO THIS CHANGE, SUM TOTAL OF TOP-BOTTOM READINGS DOES NOT MATCH WITH SUM TOTAL OF SIDE READINGS. THIS EFFECT IS CALLED SAG.
  • 6. 0.00 + 0.16 + 0.12 + 0.12 FOR EXAMPLE ALIGNMENT READING IS 0.00 - 0.08 + 0.08 + 0.16 + 0.12 + 0.12 ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 2  HOW TO REMOVE SAG ERROR FROM THE ALIGNMENT READINGS :  MEASURE THE VALUE OF SAG WITH THE HELP OF SAG MEASUREMENT SETUP AS SHOWN IN FIGURE. THIS SAG VALUE WILL BE NEGATIVE.  ADD THE SAG VALUE TO THE ALIGNMENT READINGS AS SHOWN IN THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE.  AS WE CAN SEE,SUM TOTAL OF TOP-BOTTOM READINGS & SIDE READINGS IS NOT MATCHING. ALL THREE CHECKS, GIVEN IN STEP NO.:1 HAVE BEEN DONE. STILL DIFFERENCE IS COMING DIAL READINGS FROM THE SAG MEASUREMENT SETUP ARE AS FOLLOWS. IT MEANS THERE IS SAG OF 0.08 MM.  THIS SAG VALUE WILL BE ADDED TO THE ALIGNMENT READING OF 12 O’CLOCK POSITION AFTER CHANGING THE SIGN FROM MINUS TO PLUS. MODIFIED READING IS AS FOLLOWS :  NOW, SUM TOTAL OF SIDE READINGS AND TOP BOTTOM READINGS IS MATCHING. NOW, WE CAN PROCEED TO STEP NO. : 3 OF ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE.
  • 7. ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 3 CALCULATING MACHINERY MOVEMENT IMPORTANT : FOR BEST RESULTS ,RADIAL AND AXIAL ALIGNMENT CORRECTIONS SHOULD BE DONE TOGETHER. A TABLE FOR THIS PURPOSE IS SHOWN AS FOLLOWS : AMOUNT OF SHIMS REQUIRED AT FRONT LEG REAR LEG FOR RADIAL ALIGNMENT A mm A mm FOR AXIAL ALIGNMENT B mm C mm FOR TOTAL ALIGNMENT CORRECTION A + B mm A + C mm
  • 8. ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 3A CORRECTING RADIAL MISALIGNMENT RADIAL CORRECTION VALUE IS HALF OF THE TOTAL INDICATOR READING. FOR EXAMPLE :  DIAL IS CLAMPED ON PUMP COUPLING AND POINTER IS ON MOTOR COUPLING.  DIAL IS SET TO ZERO AT 12 O’CLOCK POSITION.  DIAL IS READING +0.20 mm AT 6 O’CLOCK POSITION.  THIS MEANS THAT MOTOR SHAFT IS DOWN ( + SIGN MEANS DIAL POINTER HAS GOT COMPRESSED.)  THUS MOTOR SHAFT WILL HAVE TO BE LIFTED UP BY +0.20/2 = 0.10 mm . THAT IS, SHIMMING OF 0.10 mm IS REQUIRED AT ALL THE FOUR LEGS. IMPORTANT : FOR RADIAL MISALIGNMENT CORRECTION , THE VALUE OF SHIMMING REQUIRED WILL BE SAME FOR ALL THE FOUR LEGS, AS WE SAW IN THE ABOVE EXAMPLE. 0.00 + 0.20
  • 9. ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 3B CORRECTING AXIAL MISALIGNMENT SEE FIGURE :  D = DIAMETER ON WHICH THE DIAL IS MOVING. ( APPROX. EQUAL TOCOUPLIND DIAMETER).  L1 = DIAMETER AT FRONT LEG FROM MOTOR COUPLING.  L2 = DISTANCE AT BACK LEG FROM THE MOTOR COUPLING. SHIMING REQUIRED AT FRONT / BACK LEG = L1 OR L2 x DIAL READING / D EXAMPLE :  DIAMETER OF DIAL TRAVEL D = 100 mm  DISTANCE OF FRONT LEG TO COUPLING L1 = 200 mm  DISTANCE OF BACK LEG TO COUPLING L2 = 400 mm NOW, DIAL IS SET TO ZERO AT 12 O’CLOCK POSITION. DIAL READS + 0.30 AT 6 O’CLOCK POSITION THIS MEANS THAT TOP GAP BETWEEN COUPLINGS IS MORE THAN BOTTOM GAP (+ SIGN MEANS DIAL POINTER HAS GOT COMPRESSED) 0.00 + 0.30 D L1
  • 10. ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 3B CORRECTING AXIAL MISALIGNMENT SEE FIGURE :  THUS MOTOR SHAFT WILL HAVE TO BE LIFTED UP.  SHIMING REQUIRED AT FRONT LEG = L1 x DIAL READING / D = 200 x 0.30 / 100 = 0.60 mm  SHIMING REQUIRED AT BACK LEG = L2 x DIAL READING / D = 400 x 0.30 / 100 = 1.20 mm IMPORTANT : FOR AXIAL MISALIGNMENT CORRECTION , THE AMOUNT OF SHIMS REQUIRED TO BE ADDED OR REMOVED IS DIFFERENT FOR THE FRONT LEGS AND BACK LEGS.
  • 11. ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 3C CORRECTING TOTAL MISALIGNMENT AS PER OUR EXAMPLE, THE TOP BOTTOM READINGS ARE : SHIMING REQUIRED FOR RADIAL & AXIAL MISALIGNMENTS RESPECTIVELY HAVE BEEN CALCULATED ON THE PREVIOUS SLIDES. THE TOTAL SHIMING REQUIRED IS CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS : THUS, IN ORDER TO DO TOTAL (RADIAL + AXIAL ) ALIGNMENT, PUT SHIMS OF 0.70 mm IN FRONT LEG AND 1.3 mm IN BACK LEG OF MOTOR IN OUR EXAMPLE. 0.00 0.20 mm R 0.00 0.30 mm A AMOUNT OF SHIMS REQUIRED IN FRONT LEG REAR LEG TO CORRECT RADIAL ALIGNMENT + 0.10 mm + 0.10 mm TO CORRECT AXIAL ALIGNMENT + 0.60 mm + 1.20 mm TOTAL ALIGNMENT CORRECTION 0.10 + 0.60 = 0.70 mm 0.10 + 1.20 = 1.3 mm
  • 12. ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE – STEP NO. : 4 MOVING THE MACHINERY  FOR TOP-BOTTOM MOVEMENT SHIMS ARE ADDED OR REMOVED FROM BELOW THE FEET OF THE MACHINE TO BE MOVED. FOR THIS PURPOSE, THE MACHINE IS LIFTED UP BY WEDGING, AND THEN SHIMS ARE ADDED OR REMOVED.  FOR SIDE WISE MOVEMENT, USING JACKBOLTS IS THE PREFERRED METHOD. A LIGHT HAMMER CAN ALSO BE USED ON SMALL MACHINES. THE MOVEMENT SHOULD BE CLOSELY MONIORED BY TWO DIAL GAUGES, AS SHOWN IN THE FIGURE. IMPORTANT : AFTER MAKING THE REQUIRED MOVEMENT, ONE FINAL ALIGNMENT READING SHOULD BE TAKEN.
  • 13. CONCLUSION WHICH ALIGNMENT TO DO FIRST : TOP-BOTTOM OR SIDE WISE ALIGNMENT  WE HAVE TO SEE THAT IT IS VERY CONVENIENT TO DO RADIAL AND AXIAL ALIGNMENT CORRECTION TOGATHER.  HENCE, WE CAN SAY THAT ULTIMATELY THERE ARE ONLY TWO TYPES OF MISALIGNMENTS – TOP-BOTTOM (RADIAL + AXIAL) MISALIGNMENT AND SIDE WISE (RADIAL + AXIAL) MISALIGNMENT.  FOR BEST RESULTS TOP-BOTTOM ALIGNMENT SHOULD BE DONE FIRST, FOLLOWED BY SIDE WISE ALIGNMENT. THE REASON IS THAT IF YOU DO SIDE WISE ALIGNMENT FIRST, THEN WHILE DOING TOP-BOTTOM ALIGNMENT, SIDE WISE ALIGNMENT WILL AGAIN GET DISTURBED.  HOW EVER, IF DURING STEP NO. : 1 (TAKING ALIGNMENT READINGS) IT IS FOUND THAT SIDE WISE MISALIGNMENT IS VERY LARGE AS COMPARE TO TOP-BOTTOM MISALGNMENT, THEN ROUGH ALIGNMENT (OF SIDE WISE) SHOULD BE DONE FIRST. AFTER THAT FINAL TOP-BOTTOM ALIGNMENT AND THEN FINAL SIDE WISE ALIGNMENT SHOULD BE DONE.
  • 14. 5.REMOVE COUPLING GAURDS AND COUPLING SPOOL PIECE IF NECESSARY.MEASURE THE SHAFT AND COUPLING HUB RUN OUT ON BOTH UNITS. INSPECT COUPLING FOR ANY DAMAGE OR WORN PARTS. KEEP TRACK OF THE COUPLIG PARTS AND LABEL THEM IF NECESSARY.IF EQUIPMENT IS GOING TO BE REMOVED FOR SERVICING, MAKE PUNCH MARKS ON CASING AND BASEPLATE AS A REFERENCE DURING REINSTALLATION. 6.CHECK FOR SOFT FOOT,CASING OR FRAME WARPAGE, EXCESSIVE STATIC PIPING OR CONDUIT FORCES,DAMAGED OR RUSTY SHIMS, LOOSE FOUNDATION BOLTS. ETC. CORRECT ANY OF THE POTENTIAL PROBLEM AREAS. 7. TAKE AND RECORD A SET OF ALIGNMENT READINGS. 8.CALCULATE AND PERFORM THE NECESSARY AXIAL , VERTICAL AND HORIZONTALS MOVE. RECHECK ALIGNMET, CALCULATE AND MOVE UNTILL EQUIPMENT IS WITHIN ACCEPTABLE ALIGNMENT TOLERANCES.TORQUE FOUNDATION BOLTS TO REQURED VALUES. RCORD FINAL ALIGNMENT READINGS.
