Design, Fabrication & Testing of Shaft Alignment Test Set Up

Ranjan, Vivek Kumar (2015) Design, Fabrication & Testing of Shaft Alignment Test Set Up. BTech thesis.



Proper alignment of rotating device has long ago been identified as a pre-requisite to safe and reliable uses. Loud noise levels, frequently vibrating floors, fiasco of bearings and lubrication system are the types of machine breakage that are the results of the shaft misalignment. To get efficient torque and hence power transfer, shaft alignment plays a crucial role like while connecting to a motor and pump in any kind of industrial usage. Achieving proper alignment involves far more than merely setting the machines so that the shafts remain coaxial. This involves the designing and implementation of devices and of the apparatus into which the equipment is integrated. Here, first we have worked on the importance as well as methods of the alignment and various type of misalignments and measuring it with several tools. To replicate the motor-pump setting, an experimental set up is constructed in a driver and a driven motor which are connected with each other by flange coupling. Proper shaft alignment is done with the help of different alignment devices and readings leading us to the efficiency of power transfer
