POSITIONAL CHANGE

THERMAL GROWTH and DYNAMIC MOVEMENT MEASUREMENT SERVICE

DYNAMIC MOVEMENT SERVICE

Cold alignment targets may not accurately predict the actual operating condition of a running machine.  Permalign is used to monitor movement of machines during run-up or coast-down phase, in order to determine the positional change over time and the influences of given events.  Once the thermal growth and dynamic movement are measured, alignment targets are calculated and the machines are aligned to compensate for the positional changes that occur.

Service includes a detailed graphical measurement report of the positional changes, recommended alignment targets and shaft alignment report.

PERMALIGN SERVICE

Permalign is a laser monitoring system that provides continuous real-time measurement of the positional change that can occur from thermal growth and dynamic movement. It can measure the absolute movement of a machine or the relative movement between coupled machines.

Service includes a detailed graphical measurement report of the positional changes, recommended alignment targets and shaft alignment report.

LIVE TREND SERVICE

Similar to Permalign, Live Trend provides real-time measurement of the positional change that can occur from thermal growth and dynamic movement.  Recommended for short-term monitoring.

Service includes a detailed graphical measurement report of the positional changes, recommended alignment targets and shaft alignment report.

Misalignment costs time and money

Did you know over 50% of rotating equipment failures are directly related to misalignment and unbalance?  Misaligned or unbalanced equipment are subjected to higher vibration levels significantly reducing the service life of bearings, seals, shafts and couplings.
