A global player in the extraction of raw materials reported severe vibrations and seal leakage in a main Warman® 8/6 pump at one of their quarries. Vibrations pose risks to the pump’s performance, service life, and peripheral components, potentially leading to costly downtime and repair work. Within 36 hours of the call, two Vaikon service engineers were on-site, prepared to address the issue and adjust the pump motor shaft alignment and seal problems.


Vaikon’s service engineers arrived on-site with the necessary spare parts and alignment equipment to handle the complex task. Tight alignment tolerances combined with a 1500kg pump and a 132kW motor made this a tricky endeavor.

They opened the pump to check the impeller for imbalance and replaced the shaft sleeve and necessary seal components. A laser alignment was performed to eliminate vibrations in the pump-motor combination.


After the alignment, the pump was successfully restarted by Vaikon’s service engineers. It was evident that the interventions had been successful, as the vibrations were reduced to acceptable levels, and leakage of the seal had stopped.

The reduction in vibration levels not only led to better performance of the pump and motor but also significantly reduced wear on the equipment. As a result, the overall lifespan of the pump system was improved, and the risk of unexpected downtime was minimized, ensuring the continuity and smooth operation of the site.

By acting fast and arriving with the right skills and equipment, Vaikon was able to ensure the continuity of this site.
