What is a Balanced Fan? Think “Finishing the Job.”

A balanced fan must stay below specific vibration limits for safe operation while running at full speed. Excessive vibration will decrease the life of your fan and can lead to catastrophic failure.

Bearing life is a major component in overall fan life. Maintaining proper lubricant levels with appropriate lubricant for the application will extend bearing life and require fewer replacements. A simple preventative maintenance program implemented for your fan can save thousands of dollars in replacement parts over the course of several years. Such a plan would involve such steps as regular lubrication of fan and motor bearings, connection inspections, and vibration analyses.
