Permalign

MONITORING POSITIONAL CHANGES (THERMAL GROWTH)
The PERMALIGN laser system measures and monitors alignment changes, commonly referred to as "Thermal Growth", of rotating machinery during operation. It can measure the absolute move of a machine or the relative move between coupled machines. It may be used for permanent monitoring or for just the necessary time to determine positional change from cold to hot or vice versa. The user may obtain printout of numerical data, graphics and plot curves of positional changes over time of any monitored equipment. Contrasting with other monitoring methods, PERMALIGN allows you to determine what movements have thermal origin and what movements are caused by dynamic influences, pipe strain or load variations, etc.

PERMALIGN is the only linearized laser measuring system with a resolution of one micron throughout the entire detector range of 0.630". The system permits accurate measurement of parallel and angular movement at distances of up to 30 ft. Temperature variations and vibration do not diminish accuracy.

Collected measurement data can be trended, analyzed and archived with the WINPERMA PC software.
