MSI has served the water, wastewater, and flood control industry for 25 years, contributing to new industry standards and ensuring machine vibration, dynamics, and performance issues are correctly anticipated and prevented in new plants, and reliably resolved in existing plants being maintained or upgraded.
Ensuring correct machinery specifications is particularly vital when machine and system dynamics are often a secondary focus to civil engineering elements. Consequently, the risk of installing vibration problems with rotating machinery or systems increases, requiring the dynamics expertise and specialist support that MSI supplies.
MSI performed specialized testing on behalf of an engineering firm for newly installed horizontally oriented non-clog pumps in a return activated sludge (RAS) application with much higher than specified vibration levels and excessive noise.
Based on MSI’s thorough testing, the problem root cause with the pump was determined to be a combination of several factors.
