I have a couple of 500 hp vertical pumps. Wastewater application, they are series centrifugal pumps. The pumps vibrate excessively readings are above 1.0 in/sec at 3 times turn speed. They have 3 vane impellers. Bump test indicates a natural frequency of the pump bearing case at 3 times turn speed. How do I go about stiffening the pump case to change the natural frequency, or what would be the alternatives to stiffening.
