Rotor Turning Gear Units

BHS rotor turning gear units primarily provide safe cooling for hot rotors in a steam or gas turbine or compressor by slow turning. This helps the rotor remain dimensionally stable. Rotor turning gear units also support breakaway, startup and precise positioning of shaft trains.

The speed of rotor turning gears range from 0.2 to 400 rpm, the break-away torque is from 300 to 100,000 Nm.

Main benefits:

  • High reliability and low failure rates
  • Robust design
  • High degree of flexibility in line configuration
  • Additional increase in the whole system availability
