Many owners and operators ask about what acceptable levels are for propeller vibration and what to do about it.  DynaVibe has prepared the following chart as a guide to understanding prop vibration and when balancing is recommended based on vibration levels:

This chart is for information purposes only, and is not intended to replace, supersede or contradict any information in FAA Advisory Circular 20-37E which describes maintenance procedures for owners, operators and FAA certified maintenance personnel for aircraft propellers.  AC 20-37E is a great resource for field propeller maintenance, and it includes a very useful checklist for propeller annual inspection.

Dynamic propeller balancing is easily accomplished using the DynaVibe Classic, for simple balancing, or the DynaVibe GX2 to balance and complete vibration surveys.  The DynaVibe team is always happy to discuss balancing, vibration analysis and resolution, so please contact us if you have questions.  You can reach us by telephone at 469.708.8779, by email at sales@rpxtech.com or simply complete the form below and we'll contact you.  To get pricing or buy a DynaVibe system, visit our online store.
