Coupling Gap

One of the most overlook step while performing an alignment is the verification of the ‘E’ distance, better known as the coupling gap (between the movable and stationary hub).

Too often this verification is not done after an alignment which can cause very bad surprise after the equipment’s start-up. This distance is a vital part of the alignment process because by making this verification we make sure that there will be no contact between the motor and stationary side in operation
