Technical data

  • Drive: Hydro-radial piston motor
  • Drive pinion swivels through hydraulic cylinder
  • Position monitoring by proximity switch
  • Speed monitorin
In close cooperation with our customers, we have developed rotary devices for turbines in power plants of various power classes corresponding to specific requirements.
Our rotor  turning gear cools the hot rotor of a steam or gas turbine by turning slowly, thus maintaining dimensional stability.  Rotary units ensure breakaway, starting and positioning of the shaft trains.
The use of a swiveling  pinion offers a high degree of flexibility as there is no need for any shaft end.
