The laser system measures and monitors alignment changes, or thermal growth, of rotating machinery during operation
Ludeca, Inc.ystem measures and monitors alignment changes, or thermal growth, of rotating machinery during operation. It can measure the absolute move of a machine or the relative move between coupled machines, and may be used for permanent monitoring or for the necessary time to determine positional change from cold to hot or vice versa. Printouts of numerical data, graphics and plot curves of positional changes over time of any monitored equipment are available to the user.
This system allows the operator to determine what movements have thermal origin and what movements are caused by dynamic influences, pipe strain or load variations, etc. The product has a resolution of one micron throughout the entire detector range of 0.630 in. It is said to provide accurate measurement of parallel and angular movement at distances of up to 30 ft, where temperature variations and vibration do not diminish accuracy.
