“R.A.I.” the Reliability.aiTMChatbot
BaseTek offers a complete line of pre-engineered and custom baseplates, along with accessories for all types of process pumps and specialty rotating equipment. Bases are manufactured of Zanite®, a proprietary polymer concrete material. It is a blend of pure silicon dioxide ceramic quartz aggregate and high strength epoxy resins.
BaseTek bases deliver a surface flatness of 0.002" per foot, and provide physical properties that surpass lower grade vinyl ester composites and fiberglass. They are corrosion resistant, dampen vibration, and offer higher tensile, flexural and compression strength than vinyl ester.
Industry experts believe a solid, flat mounting surface is the first step in establishing and maintaining shaft alignments, minimizing vibration and increasing the reliability of any piece of rotating equipment. BaseTek's polymer concrete bases reduce grouting requirements, and eliminate the problematic diaphragming and twisting that typically occur in common steel designs. Superior corrosion resistance eliminates the need for periodic maintenance, such as scraping, priming and repainting, which is often required to prevent degradation to critical baseplate tolerances.
Stainless threaded insert locations are precisely cast into the polymer, providing a secure and accurate hole location. Hole perpendicularity is maintained to prevent equipment from being "bolt-bound" and compromising final equipment alignment.
BaseTek's state-of-the-art, 26,000+ Sq. Ft. manufacturing facility in Middlefield, Ohio U.S.A. is a turnkey operation with a staff of industry experts. Balanced vertical integration allows for efficient designing, manufacturing and inspection of baseplates to match any size and shape most applications demand. Computer controlled batch mixing systems, precision tooling, and CMM inspection equipment insure consistent quality and reliable castings.
