Rotor turning gear

In close cooperation with our customers, we have developed rotary devices for gas turbines of various power classes in the area of fossil power generation corresponding to specific requirements.

Our Rotor turning gear cools the hot rotor of a steam or gas turbine by turning slowly. This therefore remains dimensionally stable. Rotary units ensure breakaway, starting and positioning of the shaft trains.

The use of a swivelling pinion offers a high degree of flexibility as there is no need for any shaft end.
