Dynamic Balancing

AC Hargreaves has two calibrated modern balancing machines with a maximum capacity of 10 tonne.

The industry standard balancing tolerance of ISO GS2.5 is easily achieved, and many customers request a finer tolerance of ISO GS1.0.

Although predominantly rotors, armatures, fans, couplings etc. are derived from our own repair facility, we also cater to outside associated industries eg. pump shafts, impellers, fan hubs, industrial mower decks.

Our balancing capabilities also flows into the field. With our skilled technicians armed with the latest up to date equipment, we are able to tackle on site balancing when it is not convenient to remove the particular equipment.
