New align­ment so­lu­tion for ver­ti­cal ma­chines

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS -

Align­ing ver­ti­cal-mounted ma­chines such as pumps no longer de­mands a great deal of pa­tience and ex­per­tise. Prüftech­nik has just re­leased ver­tiSWEEP, a con­tin­u­ous mea­sure­ment method that elim­i­nates the need to stop the shaft ro­ta­tion at fixed po­si­tions to take the nec­es­sary read­ings.

The new fea­ture strongly benefits main­te­nance en­gi­neers and op­er­a­tors of large pump in­stal­la­tions where shaft ro­ta­tion may be dif­fi­cult to con­trol. Un­like other com­mon three-point meth­ods in the mar­ket, ver­tiSWEEP users only need to ro­tate the shaft once while the sys­tem au­to­mat­i­cally cap­tures hun­dreds of mea­sure­ment points. This guar­an­tees best qual­ity mea­sure­ments in less time and with less ef­fort.

With the new fea­ture, the Prüftech­nik group con­tin­ues to set new stan­dards with in­no­va­tive tech­ni­cal de­vel­op­ments in the area of laser align­ment. ver­tiSWEEP is avail­able on ROTALIGN Ul­tra iS, the in­tel­li­gent plat­form for shaft align­ment with mod­u­lar op­tions for geo­met­ric ap­pli­ca­tions. Now avail­able in New Zealand. www.demm.co.nz/reader en­quiry #150530.
