Pre-Alignment Procedures

Learning objectives

  • Identify various types of couplings
  • Describe types of misalignment
  • Recall industry standard pre-alignment inspections

Course overview

Shaft misalignment is a contributor to rotating equipment mechanical failures. Bearing, coupling, mechanical seat, and packing failures are usually a direct result of shaft misalignment. To connect shafts of independent units, the centerlines of the shaft must be colinear. Understanding couplings, misalignment types, and industry pre-checks are a must to get two independent units aligned.

The Pre-alignment Procedures training course identifies industry standard pre-checks, coupling types, and misalignment types. This course is part of the Shaft Alignment training series.
