Failure and unscheduled repairs of rotating equipment can lead to expensive delays in virtually every industry, including oil and gas refineries, power generation plants, mines, and steel/metal manufacturing. Vibration, impact and thermal expansion and contraction can create looseness and premature failures. That is why it is crucial to proactively potential issues with mechanical components to prevent issues before they happen and to extend the life of rotating equipment.
Reactive vs Proactive
Reactive maintenance is more expensive than proactive.

For rotating equipment, shaft misalignment is a common and recurring source of maintenance issues. Proactively addressing one of the leading root causes of shaft misalignment can dramatically improve equipment performance.
- Fans and blowers
- Conveyor systems
- Engines and turbines
Pumps and motors are the heart of industrial operations. Breakdowns can be costly. Proactive solutions help eliminate loosening, prevent leaks, reduce corrosion, and rebuild worn elements to optimize pump maintenance and repair and keep your operation running efficiently.
Gearboxes are used in the refinery and petrochemical industries. Delays or malfunctions can lead to expensive consequences. Using high-quality, reliable products-to seal, protect, and rebuild--helps mitigate unnecessary downtime.
Multiple solutions exist to help simplify routine maintenance and repair centrifuges. Threadlockers, retaining compounds, coatings, and others help increase the performance and efficiency of centrifuges while improving the working life of components.
Corrosion, wear, misalignment, and imbalance cause a wide range of problems with fans and blowers. Solutions help maintain shaft alignment and protect fan and blower impellers and housings from wear and the buildup of dust.
Vibrations and dynamic loads can cause loosening in conveyor systems. Solutions prevent loosening, retain alignment and protect belts and conveyor discharge chutes.
Engines and turbines are the drivers of modern machinery. Keeping the motor in place and aligned while sealing the motor housing against foreign particles and moisture help preserve the motor performance.
Reliable seals in compressor fittings prevent leaks and keep processes running smoothly to avoid unnecessary downtime. Thread sealants reliably and effectively seal pipes to prevent any leakage of gases and liquids in high and low-pressure applications.
