The C-Trac™ Precision BDC* Measurement Tool (Patent Pending) was developed as a quick and accurate way to obtain bottom dead center of a tire on a rotary kiln or dryer, assisting in measuring the unit alignment in a fast, safe and effective manner.
*Bottom Dead Center
When your unit is aligned, the slope and the centerlines match the OEM or predetermined values. Tire to tire, the slope matches, and tire to tire, it is centered horizontally with the base. Knowing the “dead bottom center,” of the tire verifies the rotary kiln or dryers is positioned properly between the support rollers which distributes load evenly and cuts down on excess wear of support roller bearings.
