Establishing a correct initial alignment, or maintaining a parallel position, is perhaps the most critical preventative maintenance procedure for all types of rotary equipment. The T-Trac® Precision Beam Alignment System is a highly accurate, OEM certified and low cost measurement tool that mechanically measures the distance between two surfaces; like the distance between trunnion/support roller faces and tire faces on rotary kilns or dryers. Interpretation of these measurements allows for precise adjustments which increase the lifespan of the rotary unit’s components.

Measurement Principle:

The T-Trac® Precision Beam and its components are composed of precision ground 6061 aluminum. Calibrated, tested and certified to the tolerance of +/-0.002” ensures precise readings in order to successfully make adjustments and/or installs. A strong magnetic connection provides a stable and secure beam mount preventing movement from the T-Trac® Precision Beam during adjustments. Digital indicators measure the fluctuation in distance between the support roller and tire. By utilizing a highly machined beam, a strong magnetic connection and easy to read digital indicators, adjustment guesswork is eliminated. Digital indicators are standard; dial indicators are optional.
