“Grout Holds the Machine Up, Anchor Bolts Hold the Machine Down” A simple statement created by MST back in 1989 and still holds true today. We know that equipment misalignment causes excessive vibration which leads to excessive bearing temperatures, expensive seal replacement, pipe strain, and an overall decrease in MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure). Best practices should include quality foundation design, and engineering, and planning. Our goal is to recommend the best product and solution for the application. We recommend “Best Practices” that should include all facets of a machine installation including foundation design, machinery engineering, civil engineering, and project planning.
