Kaman Precision Products announced its Air Gap Tool, offering accurate measuring and data storage for hydroelectric turbines. The Air Gap Tool is designed for static alignment of rotor / stator in large scale hydro generators. It is ideal for measuring air gaps in the field and can be used for initial installation and during re-assembly after maintenance procedures.
The tool can measure and store data with the tap of a finger. It can be positioned at predetermined locations between the stator core and rotor poles. Air gap distance is accurately measured and transmitted wirelessly to handheld Android or iPhone devices using the included app and stored on command.
