Compressor alignment is particularly timely given the resurgence of natural gas production in the United States.
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
VibrAlign is launching a website at http://www.compressoralignment.com to provide information for anyone involved in laser shaft alignment and flatness measurement of compressors. The website features three laser measurement systems with special features aimed at these users. The laser tools are from Fixturlaser of Sweden, and include the XA Ultimate, XA Professional, and GO Pro.
The Fixturlaser XA Ultimate is the most comprehensive system. It comes packaged with all the hardware and software to measure and correct any misalignment of the rotating shaft of a motor connected to the shaft of a compressor. It also measures the flatness of the top cover mounting surface of compressors, including Ariel Compressors specified in ER-82. The package includes a T-21 sweep laser transmitter, RM Bluetooth movable detector, Ariel frame templates with tolerances and user friendly software. Measurement results are easily inserted into Ariel’s ER-82 worksheet for correction values and sign off when the specification is met.
According to Steve Gordon, VibrAlign Western Region Sales Manager, “Compressor alignment is particularly timely given the resurgence of natural gas production in the United States. We’re pleased to be working with compressor and engine OEMs, as well as packagers and end users, to provide tools to keep the compressors running.”
This new website also offers information about a new mobile app being introduced by VibrAlign, Laser-Dials, which easily converts rotating shaft alignment data between dial indicator readings and laser shaft alignment system angles and offsets.
The new website also presents VibrAlign’s training offerings. Expert trainers are available to help companies become more efficient and effective at keeping rotating equipment well aligned for optimal performance and life.
VibrAlign uses the internet to provide a wide range of information about the alignment of rotating shafts. In addition to the new http://www.compressoralignment.com site and the company’s main website, http://www.vibralign.com, VibrAlign also produces the popular alignment blog, http://www.thealignmentblog.com.
