Misalignment of base mounted pump shafts are all too frequent, noisy and costly. Misalignment can severely damage the equipment and destroy both motor and pump.
Alignment of base mounted pumps can only be achieved in the field. Unfortunately, the quality of this service cannot be controlled by factory fabrication or engineering spec. Look at all the ways someone can mess up base mounted shaft alignment here.
So, why not get rid of field alignment all together?
The Vertical In-line's rigid couplings are designed to always return to factory alignment specification. This eliminates field alignment of the pump for its entire life.
With Vertical In-lines there is no costly laser alignment at installation. And no additional costs for alignment each time the motor and pump are reattached after maintenance. All while removing the risk of torn up parts due to misalignment.
