CENTRALIGN Ultra RS5

CENTRALIGN Ultra – modular power for demanding alignment jobs

Proper repair and reconditioning of turbines, combustion engines, compressors and pumps require an exact alignment measurement of rotors, crankshaft and camshaft bores, cylinder bores and crosshead guides.

The superior solution for the alignment of bores, bearings and diaphragms

  • True bore center measurement with exclusive brackets and measurement technology
  • Relative bore centerline measurement: determination of eccentricity error
  • Highest accuracy with measurement of at least three points over the bore
  • Universal pointer brackets, large bore brackets and customized brackets for bore diameters ranging from 45 mm (1.77“) to 4.230 mm (166.5“)
  • Laser range distance up to 50 m (1,968.50”) with the Long Range Laser
  • Measurement of both magnetic and nonmagnetic bores
  • Integrated inclinometer: measurement can be started at any angular position and performed in any direction
  • Convenient wireless data transmission between the sensor and the handheld device
  • Control sensor for automated compensation of potential laser drift (optional)

Proper repair and reconditioning of turbines, combustion engines, compressors and pumps require an exact alignment measurement of rotors, crankshaft and camshaft bores, cylinder bores and crosshead guides.

CENTRALIGN Ultra RS5 is a laser alignment system designed for the measurement and alignment of bores and internal elements of rotating machines such as bearing rings, diaphragms, nozzles, inner shells and turbine casings with tops on or off. It offers a far more convenient and accurate alternative to the traditional methods using piano wires, micrometers and cumbersome theodolite telescopes.

The CENTRALIGN Ultra RS5 measurement method uses a laser emitter which is mounted at one end of the machine and shoots through the approximate center of the bores. The laser beam serves thereafter as the measurement reference line. The sensor is mounted in the bore to be measured using the patented universal pointer brackets. The exact rotational centerline of the bore is then determined by simply rotating the sensor and the bracket head around the inside of the bore. The sensor records positional deviations relative the laser and sends the measured data to the ROTALIGN Ultra computer. The computer processes this information along with the machine dimensions involved to calculate the exact centerline position. When using the long range laser, the distance between laser and sensor increases up to 50 meters.
