Spin Testing – Higher Safety

When you are dealing with rotors exposed to high centrifugal forces during operation, you have to be sure that they will not burst. This is normally done by performing strength tests at a speed above operating speed, or burst tests, or by recording speed versus time curves. These tests are performed on a spin-test rig and will ensure the safety you need in the operation of your rotors.

Services offered by E.T. Balancing, Inc. include spin testing of your test specimens within the framework of product development or as part of quality control. Our spin testing stands will be at your service to perform tests for which you do not have the correct equipment. They are ideally suited to research and development, and to small pilot batches or spot checks within the framework of quality assurance.
