Use Of Lasers In Steam Turbine Alignment

Laser alignment is an essential tool for accurate alignment of both diaphragm and blade ring steam turbine systems.

Correctly aligned steam turbine systems have less vibration and run faster and more efficiently. This reduced vibration is essential to prolonging the working lifespan of these expensive systems. In contrast to traditional methods of aligning steam turbine systems, laser alignment is up to 50% faster and is also more accurate.

In a steam turbine system, laser alignment can be used to quickly and accurately determine shaft straightness and correct positioning of vertical shafts, straightness of bearing positions and flatness of both axial bearings and foundations.
