When an industrial machine, like a steam turbine, is installed there are very specific standards that must be applied to that installation. If those standards are not met then the equipment will not perform at its peak. While there may not be much worry about a few lost RPMs, it can really make a huge difference during high demand times.
For example, currently we are in the holiday season and energy providers all over the US must keep up with the demands of the cold winter months along with the power demands that come along with having extra lights and high heating requirements as families come and go through homes. The result is a high demand on the machines that provide that power. In the case of power generating turbines, there is no way to get more energy out of a machine that is not properly aligned.
The solution to getting the most out of your equipment is to keep it aligned properly. When a machine is not aligned correctly, it will not provide the best results. For those that need more product during a specific time of year, that means you will not be able to provide enough during those high demand times.
