Boiler Feed Water Pump High Vibration - Maintenance

The pump may have a center-hung or an overhung impeller. If the impeller is center-hung, force unbalance often predominates over couple unbalance. In this case, highest vibration will typically be in the radial (horizontal and vertical) direction. The highest amplitude will be at the pump operating speed (1X RPM).
