What is the goal?
To reduce maintenance costs and increase productivity by improving process results.

How can we achieve it?
By improving equipment reliability. Failed equipment costs a lot of money to remove, repair and reset. Add to that the related out-of-service and lost production expenses and it’s easy to see that extending MTBF (Mean time between failure) of rotating and reciprocating equipment can make or break a maintenance budget.

Epoxy grout is more flowable.
Better fill under baseplate yields a more effective bearing area with which to transmit vibration to the underlying mass. Also, epoxy grout allows for easier placement, especially under larger equipment.

Epoxy grout has a much higher modulus of elasticity.
Epoxy grout transmits vibration 7 times better than cementitious.


Why Use Epoxy Grout For Pumps
if Cementitious is cheaper?

  1. Epoxy grout is more flowable.
    Benefit:  Better fill under the baseplate yields a more effective bearing area with which to transmit vibration to the underlying mass.  Also, epoxy grout allows for easier placement, especially under larger equipment.
     
  2. Epoxy grout has a much higher modulus of elasticity.
    Benefit:  Epoxy grout transmits vibration 7 times better than cementitious.
     
  3. Epoxy grout adheres to concrete and steel – cementitious doesn’t.
    Benefit:  Since vibration cannot jump across a crack, cementitious grout stops transmitting vibration as soon as it inevitably disbands.  Epoxy grout will not separate from the foundation or baseplate thereby maintaining its vibrations damping capacity.
     
  4. Epoxy grout has much better chemical resistance.
    Benefit:  Epoxies lasts longer and will not erode or deteriorate due to exposure to acids or caustics which will attack cementitious materials.

REMEMBER: 
*Epoxy grout for vibration damping – dynamic forces.
*Cementitious grout for compressive static forces.
