Condition Monitoring Application Measures In Real Time

Ludeca's Rotalign Ultra Live Trend is a short-term, continuous-monitoring application that's designed to help  accurately determine the relative positional changes between coupled machines during run-up or shut-down.It utilizes the Rotalign five-axis sensor to monitor continuously in real-time and simultaneously both the vertical and horizontal parallel and angular displacement of rotating machinery, from cold to hot condition or vice versa.

By applying these measured values, the machines can be precisely aligned to reflect normal operating conditions. Potential benefits include lower energy costs through reduced power consumption; increased mechanical life of bearings, seals, shafts and couplings; reduced bearing and coupling temperatures; avoiding breaking or cracking of shafts; reduced vibration; and increase of meantime between failures.
