Balancing & Vibration Analysis
Since our founding, we’ve enjoyed a reputation as innovators, practitioners, and teachers in the art of balancing and vibration analysis of heavy rotating equipment. We offer 24-hour emergency service and on-site low-speed balance services for rotors weighing up to 400,000 lbs. Our mission is to provide the highest quality services in the industry, when and where it is needed.
We are still leaders in the industry with decades of experience in turbomachinery troubleshooting, vibration diagnostics, and balancing, along with using a wide range of vibration analysis equipment. Our support team of diagnostic/balance engineers will comprehensively analyze the mechanical condition of your rotating equipment assets and offer the best and most cost-effective solutions for maintaining machine integrity.
We use influence coefficient balance methods, which offer the best assurance of reliable results. And MD&A recently added system static resonance testing to our capabilities.
From remote vibration data review and analysis to in-situ balancing, and everything in between, MD&A can partner with you to support the long-term operability that your business demands.
Additionally, our High-Speed Balance Facility in St. Louis was designed with both vacuum capability and the ability to excite generator rotors at high speed, allowing the testing and balancing of both steam turbine and generator rotors. High-speed balancing has effectively shown to minimize any testing stresses during repairs, ensuring effective usage when returned to operation
