Engine Balance â The Thinking Has Changed (Case Study)
Balanced combustion on reciprocating engines is important for reliable, emission-compliant operation. Through the years, a number of engine balance techniques have been developed and utilized. Unfortunately, no clear-cut standard has been established for engine balance methodology or frequency. This paper will show the theory of engine balance, describe the history of balancing techniques, and present the most current thinking on proper engine balance technique, equipment, and frequency.
