Torque & Real Time Alignment

Torque and Real Time Alignment System (TAS3100)

The Riverhawk Torque and Real Time Alignment System TAS3100 is the only product on the market capable of supplying a misalignment indication while the machine is in operation and the shaft is rotating. Our “Hot Alignment” System measures actual shaft position, not case movement. It provides live information on the state of the coupling, which is useful for condition monitoring and assists in the evaluation of the coupling and bearing loading. The continuous monitoring of the equipment will enable operators to recognize performance deterioration, which may reduce efficiency or cause a catastrophic shutdown

 

Benefits of Our Torque Metering Systems

  • Works with most available couplings on the market with minor modifications, eliminating the need for coupling redesign
  • Less complicated coupling design
  • Temperature compensation of the unique “on-shaft” electronics reduces error in readings due to temperature variations and temperature gradients across the coupling; bonded strain gauge bridges provide reliable linear torque signals
  • The use of two rotary transformers, one supplying power to the electronics and the other transmitting the signals from the shaft precludes any need for bearings or slip rings to be used with the system
  • Savings derived from increased machinery efficiency may generate a quick payback while providing insurance against failures in equipment being monitored
  • Reduced weight compared to other systems; minimal weight suspended by coupling due to strain gauge technology
  • Less sensitive to coupling guard deflections
  • Superior with respect to the effects on balance and natural frequency compared to other torque metering technologies
  • No gear teeth to generate windage and heat in coupling guard
  • High Accuracy (within 1% full scale at temperatures below 250°F)
