FENNER DRIVE ALIGNMENT

FENNER DRIVE ALIGNMENT LASER pulley and sprocket alignment BMG’s extensive range of Fenner power transmission components encompasses the Fenner Drive Alignment Laser instrument, designed for accurate pulley and sprocket alignment, to reduce wear on belts and pulleys and ensure drive efficiency. “The portable Fenner Drive Alignment Laser system - suitable for both vertical and horizontal mounted machines - is quick and easy to use for accurate results,” explains Carlo Beukes, general manager, power transmission, BMG. “The laser line of this compact and lightweight tool, allows rapid adjustment to perfect alignment. Conventional alignment methods, which often require difficult, lengthy positioning of components, can prolong downtime and affect efficiency. “The Fenner alignment system shows parallel and angular misalignment and as a result, drive efficiency is improved and energy savings are increased. With minimal friction and vibration, the service life of chain, sprockets, shafts and bearings is significantly extended and the costs of maintenance, repair and downtime are reduced.” For maximum accuracy, the mounting unit is magnetised to attach firmly to sheaves or pulleys. It is also possible to attach this instrument to nonmagnetic sheaves using double sided adhesive tape. BMG’s Fenner range also includes synchronous transmission belts, pulleys and accessories, as well as shaft fixings, chain drives and couplings. BMG also supplies Fenner shaft mounted speed reducers (SMSRs).

FIRST HIGH PRESSURE VALVES SUPPLIED TO EGYPT The company already has decades of operational experience with almost all of the effective principles and assemblies used. As such the SHP can be considered ‘Proven Equipment’. The individual system components have simply been modified and innovatively combined, as such that they enhance the dependable and low-wear area of application of the existing technology to meet the increased requirements. Thus, the new SHP-series automatic recirculation valve enables and promotes the energy-efficient operation of modern power plant facilities. Schroeder Valves is among the suppliers for the world’s biggest gas-fired combined-cycle power plant complex currently built in Egypt. The first of a total of 36 Schroeder High Pressure Valves (SHP) have already been delivered. The automatic recirculation valve is suited for the high and maximum pressure range as well as for situations involving highly fluctuating pump loads and long periods of operation under extreme partial load conditions – exactly the features needed for the protection of the pumps in the Egyptian complex. The Schroeder High Pressure Valve SHP is an automatic recirculation valve which was developed to protect pumps and equipment from damage that can occur due to the flow rate falling below the permissible minimum. Thus the SHP is suited primarily for customers in the field of power plant and plant construction and the offshore industry. The SHP builds on existing Schroeder Valves technology.
