High/Low Torque Alarm – Continuously monitor the shaft Torque to make sure the load stays within safe operating limits, thereby preventing premature fatigue and/or failure of the equipment. Use the TorqueTrak Revolution output signal to sound an alarm and/or shut down the equipment when the load exceeds the safe limit. TorqueTrak Revolution Response Time: 2 msec max.
Optimize Fuel Efficiency, Marine – Verify the true Power output of the engine(s). The true Power output is critical in the propulsion efficiency analysis and emissions analysis. Compare Fuel Input to Engine Power Output to Vessel Speed.
Load Management – Continuously monitor the material load on conveyor equipment, as indicated by the Torque on the drive shaft, and speed up or slow down the process accordingly; even stop the process altogether in the case of a material jam, before any damage can occur to the equipment. TorqueTrak Revolution monitoring instrument, Response Time: 2 msec max.
Diagnostics – Learn how much mechanical Power (Hp or kW) is truly needed to accomplish a task. Learn why there is a humming noise (torsional vibration.) Learn why the coupling broke (excessive start-up torque.)
Preventive Maintenance – Diagnose and eliminate a torsional vibration condition that, if left unchecked, will result in premature fatigue and/or failure of the equipment.
These are some of the basic ways Torque & Power measurement can save time and money for just about any operation where there is a rotating shaft. The TorqueTrak instruments are used in many different industries and applications all around the world.
