Reliability engineers know that the four most common imbalance and high vibration failures are associated with (1) improper installation, (2) inadequate thermal compensation, (3) problems related to the base of the structure, and (4) pipe tension.
More specifically 90% of the failures of the bases are due to their instability, and this occurs due to improper installation (incorrect flatness) and/or the use of inappropriate materials.
That is the reason for using correct materials and specialists at the beginning, will save money in the long run.
While the foundation of your critical machinery is often underappreciated, it is extremely important to have a structurally sound foundation.
