1103mark1Laser Alignment For Steam And Gas Turbines

Centralign Ultra from Ludeca was developed for the alignment of steam and gas turbines. The system precisely aligns internal elements with upper halves installed or off, for distances up to 133 ft. Accurate bore measurements can be acquired without interrupting other work taking place in the turbine, saving time over traditional methods. Centralign Ultra assures true bore center measurement and reveals bore out of roundness. Stable wireless data transmission ensures reliable and complete data transfer of information between the measuring sensors and the computer.

1103mark5Electric Torque Multipliers

Mountz says its electric torque multipliers make for easy, precision tightening and loosening in heavy-duty fastening tasks. The product shuts off when pre-set torque is achieved, is non-impacting and operates at a smooth, continuous rotation with a high-performance, brushless motor. These tools eliminate the cumbersome setup time and slow ratcheting process of hydraulic wrenches. Mountz also says using its product is ergonomically safer than hammering with an impact wrench.

1103mark6Control-Switch Relay Mitigates Arc Flash

A Time Delay Control Switch Relay (TD-CSR) from Electroswitch provides a safe and effective means for local control to mitigate the arc flash danger in circuit breaker operation. It allows for a manually initiated time-delay trip or close operation that incorporates a flashing LED to notify the operator of a pending trip or close operation and to evacuate the “arc flash” area. SCADA operation is not required. Local trip or close capability is initiated and delayed for 10 seconds with an option to easily cancel the pending trip or close operation.
