Machine Reliability provides powerful comprehensive product support, on site service, training and consulting, which will help ensure the success of your company's reliability program.​


Consultation and Field Services

Machine Reliability offers a variety of specialized maintenance and production services, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Laser shaft alignment and foundation measurement of rotating machinery.
  • Monitoring of positional changes (thermal growth) in rotating machinery or structures.
  • Steam path, bearing bore, and diaphragm alignment of large steam turbines as well as bore alignment of diesel engines and gas turbines.
  • Compressor alignment including crosshead guides, Ariel ER-82 frame flatness, crankshaft bores and foundation measurements
  • Single-bearing and single-pedestal-bearing generator laser alignment.
  • Laser alignment of vertical flange-mounted pumps and Motors.
  • Laser alignment of long jackshafts, spoolpieces, and cardan-shaft drives.
  • Machine tool alignment (CNC, lathe, mills, surface grinders, etc.)
  • Measurement and alignment of sawmill machinery
  • Extruder alignment
  • Parallelism measurement
  • Roll alignment

All jobs include a customized report of all services performed.

Infrared Inspection Services

Infrared Inspection Services will help you detect system overloads, loose defective components and damaged switch gear, and will also make hot, dangerous problems easy to find. Infrared thermography is used to find areas of excess heat so that problems can be avoided before a component fails, causing damage to the component, creating safety hazards and productivity loss. Because increased heating is most likely a sign of failure, infrared is the best diagnostic tool available for finding these hot connections in the early stages of degeneration.

Laser Shaft Alignment Services

Laser alignment of mounted pumps and motors, laser alignment of long ac shafts, spool pieces and Cardan shaft drives. A detailed, customized report of all services performed will be provided as well. We utilize EASY-LASER alignment tools and Pruftechnik's Optalign Smart RS5 or Rotalign Ultra IS for our alignments. Machines that are well aligned at the commissioning stage and regularly maintained will permanently reduce both plant operating and maintenance costs. Benefits Include:

  • Increased machine uptime
  • Reduced vibration
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Increased product quality
  • No unplanned shut down

Oil Analysis

The importance of a medical professional utilizing a blood sample to provide an accurate diagnosis is a very good analogy to used oil analysis when monitoring equipment.

Luneta's Condition Monitoring Pod is a multi-parameter inspection pod that greatly modernizes and expands the daily one-minute inspections. Most bull’s eye level gauges are used only to confirm oil volume. Many root causes and symptoms of machine failure are missed due to the limited ability of these sight glasses

Predictive Maintenance

Machine Reliability is your sole source provider for all plant reliability requirements. From in-house programs to completely outsourced, we provide plant managers the resources to implement and maintain any size and scope of a condition based maintenance program. Predictive maintenance guarantees cost savings over preventative maintenance because your machinery will avoid unscheduled down time due to maintenance issues and problems. Complete, customized packages are created for each individual client to ensure all reliability needs are met.

Ultrasound Services

Ultrasound services for SDT200 and SDT270.

  • Bearing Monitoring
  • Leak Detection
  • Electrical Systems
  • Steam Traps
  • Valve Monitoring
  • Condition Monitoring
  • Marine Applications
  • Tank Test

Vibration Analysis

Ludeca, CSI and DLI Capable Vibration Analysis

It is well documented that a vibration program which establishes equipment condition and allows for maintenance to be scheduled accordingly can save companies millions of dollars annually in maintenance costs and expensive unscheduled down time! Vibration analytical services for rotating equipment including turbines, motors, pumps, bearings, and gearboxes. Will identify looseness, misalignment, imbalance, deteriorating rolling elements, and adjacent equipment vibration. In-place rotor balancing and frequency analysis services are also available.


On Site Laser Shaft Alignment Training

We provide on-site training and will provide a training simulator, alignment tool and projector. Classes are limited to 8 Persons per class so that everyone has a better opportunity to learn and to participate in the classroom and in the field. Certificates of Completion for each attendee. Product orientation and comprehensive training. Introductory, Field Supervision through Expert.

Attendees should have some alignment experience in general; Some exposure to the laser alignment system would also be helpful but is not required.
