Evaluation of the balancing quality G (The total residual unbalance is known)

In the assumption that the total residual unbalance is known, it is possible to calculate the corresponding value for the balancing quality G according to ISO standards 1940/1.

Example of calculation:

Rotor mass M [kg] = 6

Maximum service speed N [RPM] = 5000 

Total residual unbalance U [gr mm] = 180 

Total residual eccentricity E [m] = 180/6 = 30


Using the diagram featured in my recent blog post entitled "Balance quality grades for various groups of representative rigid rotors" -  two lines are drawn; one line, normal to the x axis, passing through the maximum service speed value, (5000 in the example).  The second line, normal to the y axis, passing through the residual eccentricity (30 in the example).

The inclined line, passing through the intersection point of the two drawn lines, defines the balancing  quality (grade). 

As an option, the following formula can be used:
