DIESEL GENERATOR ALIGNMENT IN VIET NAM

Diesel generator alignment in Hai Phong

In order to obtain optimum service life from engine and its drivenequipment, correct alignment between the units is required. Improperalignment results in excessive vibration, short life of driven equipment/compound bearing and coupling clutch parts, and frequent re alignment.Good alignment practices include proper shimming, correct torque on holddown bolts, accurate laser or dial indicator usage, allowances for bearingclearances, thermal growth, and and affects other engine properties.

Diesel Generator Alignment Considerations

Parallel/Bore Misalignment: Parallel or bore misalignment occurs when centerlines of driven equipment and engine are parallel but not in the same plane

Angular/Face Misalignment: Angular or face misalignment occurs when centerlines of driven equipment and engines are not parallel.

Bore Misalignment: illustrates that misalignment can occur in more than one plane. For this reason, alignment readings must be taken at 90-degree intervals as the units are rotated

Hai Ha M&S has successfully implemented several diesel generator alignment projects in Vietnam
Below is the most recent project that we have done in Hai Phong port. a Chinese diesel generator line and very difficult to modify a lot because the generator was replaced unlike the old one.

The generator base is much higher than the diesel engine base so the surface of the generator base must be cut and grinded smoothly.

Cutting the generator base to the above position is the most suitable option, then measuring the ratio between the generator and the diesel engine.

After measuring the difference between the generator and the engine, 4 iron plates of the same shoe dimension were fabricated.

Use the wire to check the surface flatness of the 4 machine base positions.

Use the feeler Gauge to measure the clearance bottomàn and top surface of iron plate and flatform support

The clearance should not exceed 0.05mm and the clearance of all 4 positions is about 0.02 to 0.03 and less.

Apply a thin layer of Epoxy resin before placing the iron plate.

Proper alignment of a machine can save a huge amount of money. Misalignment can cause serious problems in a machine.

The shaft is the main object. Shaft alignment occurs when a machine couples with another machine.
The shaft is the main object of a machine. Shaft alignment occurs when a machine couples with another machine.

During the alignment, we align the centreline of the two shafts in a straight line. On all axes both the shafts should be parallel to each.

Any misalignment can lead to a catastrophic failure in a machine.
The misalignment will lead to the following abnormalities.
Misalignment can cause the sudden failure of a machine. In the light of experience i have observed the following major failures in a machine.
  • Crankshaft bearing failure

  • Break down of major components.

  • Fatal to human beings.

  • Increase in downtime causing loss of production.

  • On board aship a breakdown due to the alignment can cause a huge loss to the shipping company.

  • A breakdown in Diesel generator can cause the complete black out in industry and on ships.

Before the catastrophic failure, machine will give the misalignment indications. Listed below are the major initial symptoms.

  • Vibration will be with heavy amplitude.

  • Temperature of the body will be high.

  • There will be frequent loosening of foundation and other bolts.

  • Repeated breakage of bolts

  • Oil / grease leakage from seals.

  • Coupling failure will be very high.

  • Bearings will get overheat.

  • Frequent failure of bearings

  • Overheating of components

  • Unbalanced loads on machine

The bolt used is a 12.9 high tensile cable bolt.

All bolts are tightened before aligning.

The dial meter is attached to the generator shaft, then rotates around the handwheel, according to the results on the dial meter at 4 positions 0, 90,180 270 degrees to align.

Since the generator was replaced with the old one, the junction box was also built new to be more suitable.
