What a difference!
Proper alignment is essential to machine reliability.

The top spectrum shows the same pump after it was precision aligned during a scheduled maintenance shutdown.
Spectra were acquired at the pump input shaft.
Proper balancing of the driven element avoided catastrophic failure of this gearbox, expensive repairs, and most importantly, costly down time. The spectra at right were acquired at the output shaft of the gearbox.
