Blower Wheel Balancing

The Applied Technical Services family of companies conducts blower wheel balancing to minimize unnecessary vibrations during the operation of industrial fans.
What is a Blower Wheel?
Blower wheels stimulate airflow in HVAC systems, allowing fresh air to flow freely and efficiently throughout industrial and commercial buildings. After years of use, the blower wheel’s blades accumulate dust and dirt, which can cause the motor to vibrate excessively, signifying an imbalance in the blower wheel. Imbalance can occur for several reasons, including the following:
What is Blower Wheel Balancing, and Why is it Important?
During the blower wheel balancing procedure, technicians use a balance machine to measure the blower wheel’s amplitude of vibration to determine where the frequency of the vibrations increases. Our technicians then clean the blower and make the adjustments needed to balance the fan, improving its efficiency in the process. Failure to properly maintain and balance a blower wheel may result in the following:
