Features Advantages Benefits (shaft alignment o/b a water-borne ship)


Ship water–born
e

Comparitive measurements have proven that there is
no correlation between the propulsion shaft alignment
of a water-borne and a dry-docked ship.

Coupled propulsion shafting

The propulsion shafting is approached as a system,
the one element influencing the other.

 

Dedication

The work is carried out on the E.R. floor in isolation from other parties.

Information

If bearing influence numbers and newbuilding protocols are missing, which usually is the case, the propulsion shaft alignment work still can be carried out satisfactorily.

Athwart-ships misalignment

Attention is paid to athwart-ships misalignment, as well as to inplane and angular out-of-line positions of each part of the propulsion shafting.

Rational shaft alignment

In practice, the propulsion shafting is re-aligned in an elastic curve for even load distribution.

Long-life, trouble-free operation

Our simple jacking and measuring method, followed by interpretations, which are based on analytical and experimental procedures, ensure excellent operating performance as a result of our intervention.

Report

For easy, future reference a detailed report of the propulsion shaft alignment work is drafted and submitted.
